John and I were blessed to be among the delegates for this conference and were so blessed to be among our family and among the leadership of this region for a season. As time continues and tensions rise in this part of the world, we are grateful for the protection of our Savior and the true anointing of the Holy Spirit over each of the presenters and the presentations. I am always amazed to see these leaders pressure of the challenge of sharing the Gospel in light of the Great Commission within their nations. Many of them face difficulties of which we are not aware. I am grateful for the fortifying faith such fellowship and expressions of love build as we gather with our global family.
