|Mt. Hood signals we're almost home.|
And when familiar Mt. Hood comes into sight, one really gets the feeling that there’s no place like home – and soon we’ll be home to our own familiar beds.
Our Mission to South Africa has come to an end. We’ve made new friends, formed new relationships, received and imparted blessings to others.
But, it’s really only a beginning. God seems to have a special calling for the Oregon Adventist Men’s Chorus that touches lives in a way no other can. This was evident as stories were shared during the journey home and we reflected on the past two weeks on the African continent.
Looking to the future, there’s talk of uniting our three choruses – American, Romanian and South African – for a tour of France and parts of Europe in 2014. Nothing is set in stone yet, but it appears to be the direction God is leading us at the moment.
So some are not home yet. They’ve chosen to extend their time in South Africa to visit game parks or take other adventures. Others are visiting friends and family in Europe – Romania, Germany and France.
And we still have stories to share here in this space from the journey. As we get back to our busy lives here at home, we’ll continue to post stories and pictures as we’re able and as we receive them.
All the while, we’ll remember the heavenly purpose we serve. We’re here temporarily on this earthly journey – there’s really no place like the home our Heavenly Father is now preparing for us.
Let not your heart be troubled;
you believe in God, believe also in Me.
In My Father’s house are many mansions;
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again and receive you to Myself;
that where I am, there you may be also.
- John 14
