A Fourth-Grader Remembers

“I can’t remember what it was, but it must have been important to a fourth-grade boy. I took it home with me and posted it to my bedroom’s wall. I remember very well your visit to our church and our Sunday school group.” Sean recounts to me his memory of our visit to Evart Free Methodist Church from our early years, maybe 2005 or 2009. I stand here at the fellowship hall of this church after speaking at the morning church service, greeting the people and chatting with some old friends. It is good to hear from Sean, and to know that our early visit was a meaningful experience for him. I am happy that he is still connected with this Evart Christian community.

Visiting local churches during the Covid pandemic is very challenging. We do all the required things, wearing face masks, watching our physical distance, and washing our hands. I have been selective of which churches to visit. I just feel the need to limit my visits mainly as my way of precaution. Last month, I visited Evart FMC. The next few months, I will be visiting other churches in Michigan and Illinois. I am grateful that a Covid-19 vaccine will soon come out and be available to the public. Praise God. Meanwhile, visiting local churches and sharing the news of what God is doing in Asia continues. I am thankful that churches are still open to receive a missionary visit, and I have the capacity to travel and share in person. God is good.
