This past month marked one of the longest trips that Joel has ever taken. What started out as 2 separate trips ended up being combined into one marathon trip. He participated in this trip along with another couple from our leadership team. During the trip they connected with 8 separate teams. I was worried about the trip as it is easy to get worn down from travel and consecutive meetings, but God was really looking out for them. They were in the car for over 50 hours, on some really interesting roads and they didn’t have any problems with the car. They stayed healthy and were in good spirits for the whole trip. Joel was encouraged by all the meetings they had. It is always good to connect with those on our field and to hear what God is doing, listen to the struggles they are facing, and encourage them as they press on in the task. It is true that when he came home he was ready to crash, but I was just praising God for how He had sustained them through this trip. There is no way to summarize such a long trip in posts, but how about some pictures of a few of the different aspects of their journey.
