Finally Home to Family

With U.S. troops now returning home from Iraq, there's been a surge of surprise military homecoming videos on T.V. and the internet.  If you're anything like me, you enjoy every opportunity to watch these videos, maybe even more than once :-)!

For many years, my family joined a local church in Hong Kong the day after Christmas and visited a leper colony in China. We brought these men and women, each of whom were missing various body parts, gifts and shared the gospel message. The team of doctors and nurses that came with us treated their wounds and provided medical care. It was certainly a wonderful time for both the lepers and us!
