All of the laughs, jokes, dancing, tears, chats, walks, and musical harmonies came to a culmination tonight as the PBA team sat down with the missions department for our last debrief of the trip.
As I write, the Lord has directed my mind to Psalm 66, which is all about praising the Lord for His goodness.
The verse that speaks loudest is verse 16, which says, “Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will declare what He has done for my soul.”
It was a joy to reflect on the past month. We talked about our first week in Purley and then the pilgrimage as a whole; we shared what we learned about God, discussed the Short School of Mission, voiced some of our best moments (two of which included the Pilgrims’ Walk in Lindisfarne and Columba Bay!), and reminded one another that we can apply all that we’ve learned to our individual lives back in America.
One thing we all agreed on is that Iona was a life-changing place; the Lord spoke a beautiful word and encouragement to each of us. What is said about Iona being so close to Heaven is truth; our experiences all verified this!
We are overwhelmed and grateful for the prayers, support, love, and encouragement from the Fusion team! This trip will forever be etched on our hearts.
We miss the UK but can’t wait to see how God continues to use us in the mission fields in which He places us!
Blessings to you all,
the PBA 2015 team
