Return to the Mother Ship

Today we are spending the day back in Illinois, at our sending church, where we attended for over 15 years before planting Light of Christ.

We will attend both services; Father Rooster will be celebrating (or leading the liturgy for the communion portion of the services) and also sharing a brief report on how things are going at Light of Christ and how God is at work there.

We'll have lunch with Grandma and Grandpa Rooster, and then good friends are hosting an open house for our family, so friends can stop in and visit with us in person. After dinner, couples that we were in a prayer group with for years, plus some other invited guests, will gather to pray for us.

And send us off back to Wisconsin!

It'll probably be a long but wonderful day. Except for the driving and the getting everyone out the door by 7 a.m. part of it, we are really looking forward to it!

Could you please ask your church to pray for a little girl named Abby Riggs. She is very, very ill from cancer, and also from the after-affects of chemo--with sores all over her poor body. She is in excruciating pain, and on Morphine, Ativan, and phentenol. She also cries out in her sleep. She needs a lot of prayer right now.

Her family blog is:
