We're home!

We arrived home safe and sound! Praise the Lord. I cannot believe how emotionally drained I feel. I am exhausted. I had a hard time on the plane. It gave me too much time to think with no interruptions and I replayed many memories in my mind of Mike. I spent a portion of the flight wiping my tears away. Paul has been a very good support through this time.

I wanted to share with you all a portion of the memorial service that really touched me. There was a time given for friends and family to share. Mike's children went up to the microphone and attempted to talk about their father. Paul got very EMOTIONAL during this time. Later, I asked him what made that section so much harder for him that all other parts. What he said really hit hard. Paul, after listening to his unsaved children speak felt the burden Mike felt for his children. Every opportunity Mike had with his children he tried to share the GOOD news with them. I remember how Mike prayed daily for his children and family. He loved his children tremendously and wanted them to know Christ like he knew Christ. I have put the Williams family on my prayer list and we have committed to pray for their salvation. The gospel was clearly presented at the Memorial service- now I need to pray and let God do His part.

How true that not only the gospel was presented clearly, but we are not the ones who can cause someone to make a decision for Christ. We must sow the seed and pray. God will give the increase.
