Our pastor and one of our elders from church are off to Tambov, Russia on a mission trip. They will be teaching on the doctrine of God at a conference there. They also are delivering a whole lot of slippers for orphans.
While they were preparing to leave, there were a number of things that came up and came to mind that caused them to doubt whether they were even going to get to go. As late as Monday evening, they didn't think it was going to happen. I love how God often stretches our faith and then confirms it.
