STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO:

Amman, Jordan is a wonderful, ancient and modern, tense and yet tolerant city. Its hilly streets and deep valleys make for some dramatic views and dreary alleyways. We see Christian churches as well as the majority-people’s mosques. These days, it is full of refuge-seekers from many dangerous countries around the region. Every time we visit this place, we feel welcome. But we recognize the difficulties of the king who leads this country on the narrow path of peace. Pray for Jordan, that her people will be blessed and her leaders to have the wisdom of Solomon.

About the author

My name is Susan Bergman De Vries. I left the United States in 1968 on my first summer missions trip, left again as a young wife in 1972, and have since then lived in Ghana, Costa Rica, Mindanao (Philippines), Kenya, and now Cyprus in the E.U. We have 3 daughters, born on 3 different continents, and now all 3 and their husbands are working in 3 different missions, in Mozambique and Brazil. All 10 of my grandchildren speak Portuguese (or will when they learn to talk) which my husband and I do not. Bummer, huh?
