Paul, Grace, and Calvin

We were honored to have some Chinese friends—Paul and Grace and their son Calvin—for lunch and fellowship at our home, after having not seen them for many years. Paul has been a pastor, theological teacher, and writer for many years, and a leading Chinese thinker in Reformed theology, specializing in apologetics. He and his family were members of our church for some years prior to moving east to pastor a Chinese church eleven years ago. It was great to be with them again. Pray that God will continue to bless and guide them, and use them abundantly for His glory.  

Family Time

After preaching on God’s immutability yesterday morning to our dear flock (Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever!), we had five hours of wonderful family time at our son Calvin and Laura’s new home. Here is part of our family in front of the pond in their back yard, after riding on a quad (which scared up a large Great Horned Owl which flew directly in front of us—what a wing span they have!) and hiking through some of their 31 acres of land (which Calvin loves because of all the deer on the property). What a blessing family is! Mary and I are so humbled by God’s covenantal goodness and grace to us. Every blessing to you and your family in the 2020s in Jesus Christ through our faithful, unchangeable, covenant-keeping God, the great I AM.
