“The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.” —Psalm 68:11
Our brothers in Colombia returned safely from the jungle expedition, rejoicing in God's direction and blessing.

Praise Him with us, and thank you for praying!

The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16
