Just a glimpse from a MWS cruise!
What a joy it has been to be part of two MWS cruise trips! To view
God's creation from different parts of our world has been incredible
and reminds me daily of His Almighty and Awesome Power!
His blessings are unlimited, whether it is "Smitty Okie"; Chaz and
Joey running around trying to time everyone's song to a couple of
minutes (this in itself deserves a Grammy); the wonderful crew who try
to take care of our every need, memorize our names, entertain us, make
animals from the towels, chocolate on our pillows at bedtime,
directing us when we get lost on the ship and doing everything they
can to make sure we enjoy every minute of our trip. The food is
incredible and is available about any time of day!
There are daily opportunities to hear God's word through inspirational
speakers, worship leaders, musicians, and bible study.
But for us, I have to say the fellowship and relationships we have
built throughout these weeks are priceless. We enjoy listening to
people's stories and sharing life with them and have been richly
blessed with dear friends from all over the US and Sweden and still
stay in touch with them through email and visits. God speaks to us in
many ways and He has used these people in a mighty way, as we have
become prayer partners. We have a dear young male friends whom we
invited to join us on the cruise last summer. The night before we
boarded the ship he met a beautiful girl at the hotel, introduced
himself, and they became friends. She is from Columbia, South
America. On the return flight from the cruise they met again in the
airport; both returned home and began to date on the phone every
night. They did a study of Rick Warren's book every night for a year
and after several visits they married one year later from the date
they met. Isn't God Awesome!
So, join us, as we again look forward to new relationships and rich
blessings as we head to Alaska!
