In repentance and rest is your salvation; in quietness and confidence is your strength…

Isaiah 30:15


The silence and solitude were very welcome after a prolonged period of ministry in Europe. God uses His people so often to bless His servants. We were provided a cabin in the woods complete with Finnish sauna (that was an experience!). To this day we don’t know who blessed us with this gift. This is the view of the lake that we saw every day as we walked in the area.
