Easter Sunday

We started the day with an impromptu sunrise Easter service. As we looked out over Lubango I thought of all that Angola has suffered over the years, and the hope for Redemption before her. I thought of you - family, friends, colleagues, supporters - and prayed for your hope and health.

These words from the classic hymn spoke to me:

Crown Him the Lord of peace,
Whose power a scepter sways
From pole to pole that wars may cease,
And all be prayer and praise:
His reign shall know no end,
And round His pierc├Ęd feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend
Their frangrance ever sweet.

May wars cease, may peace and healing reign both in Angola, and in all our hearts and minds.

Grace be with you,
Robert and Beth

a beautiful picture,
a beautiful poem,
from a beautiful person,
no less would I expect.

Our prayers are indeed for both peace and God's work in Angola to continue.
