Dear support groups...

As we post pictures of Gary's "One Drop," we can't but help to think of our support groups. Time after time, we meet individuals that come out here on their own, or often church groups that come out here as part of a service mission. Either way, it's rare that we find folks that have the same level of support that we do from home. It's not bragging about how wonderful our supporters are, it's just being humbly appreciative of those that send us and partner with us.

We do believe the ease of our experiences and the extra-opportunities we have to bless and be blessed by others are largely because of the prayer support we receive from home. Every person out here has a group of several people to pray for them, for their safe travels, for their family and jobs they are separated from, and their spiritual health. But most of all, we feel this covering allows us to have faith beyond our own. We are able to see spiritual opportunities beyond our own eyes, and to act with confidence beyond our own strength. It's great when people are praying to God on your behalf. It's a great way to not have to do this mission on your own. And for that we thank you.
And we thank you for the practical things too. Notes of encouragement, comments on the blog, little snacks that we open as the trip goes along, and yes, a little bottle in Gary M's care package that makes sharing quarters with other men a little more manageable.....
