In 1992 I was privileged to spend six months in Bolivia, South America, as a short-term missionary.
In 1993 I was privileged to spend 10 weeks in Mexico doing much the same thing.
All these years I have longed to return to both Bolivia and Mexico, but God has kindly said no, for He had other plans. He has sent my Spanish students to these and other countries. He also sent one of my sons to Bolivia on a summer mission team.
And now, 25 years later, my daughter has graduated from high school, and I get to take her to Mexico to meet the missionaries with whom I served so long ago!
They are in a different city, and I am sure 25 years has changed them as much as it has me. But what else will have changed? What will have stayed the same? We shall know in three weeks’ time, and I can’t wait!
Acts 18:21b I will return again unto you, if God will.
