Here's a view of the Washington Monument with the trees blooming around the Tidal Basin.
The memorial to Martin Luther King, Jr. is new (above). There are a number of meaningful statements he made carved on a wall near the monument.

Besides these things, the speakers provoked us to contemplate what part we, individually, are called to take in making our great God known to all people. We praise Him! And we thank those who took part by praying for the success of this event. God answered abundantly.

God has answered our prayers abundantly. It's difficult to come up with a picture of an answered prayer. Let me just say the spirit of excitement about what God is doing worldwide to make His love known is palpable at the missions conference. The worship times in music have been wonderful. Dr. Bob Evans, our plenary speaker from Bible-Centered Ministries, has given us much to think about in relation to the key nature of ministry to children. The students are learning about other faiths in exposure trips to the local mosque, synagogue, and Buddhist temple. Missionaries have arrived with displays and break-out sessions to help us visualize the variety of ministries to far-reaches of the globe. Adoniram Judson will visit us in a drama in a few hours. We look forward to our closing evening tonight.

It was a treat to be able to pack gift bags with a neighbor from our apartment building. It more enjoyable to do a chore with someone else. These bags have little welcome gifts for the 54 missionaries expected to arrive on campus in just FIVE days.
We praise God for the way He's helping us manage last-minute details. I had purchased just 54 of one item for the gift bags. Then, wouldn't you know it, a 55th person called to say she was also coming. I was trying to figure out what to do for the gift bags, when someone else emailed to cancel. WHEW!
