Peiwu and I are at the G-8 terminal in Minneapolis right now waiting for our flight to Paris, which leaves at 5:10 p.m. I finished the “Organic Church Field Manual” at 3:00 a.m. this morning – That’s why I look a little like a zombie here…

In a few hours we will be over the Atlantic and when we land the sun will be up, but my watch will say 1:30 a.m. So much for my hopes of being cured of zombi-ism. It has been 30 years since I was in Paris. I bet it has changed, and I bet it hasn’t changed. The Louvre, L’Arch de Triumph…stuff like that doesn’t change.

The really good pictures are going to be in Africa. I will save room for those. I want to thank all of you who are praying for us and supporting the mission here. God’s hand has been guiding us so clearly even in the preparation. Shalom for now.
