For us, the end to 2017 was really a story of God’s leading. And, with the help of hindsight, things became clearer after much of the story unfolded.
We were all set to return to Iraq and had just bought the last airline ticket for a worship lead- er that would be joining us. The next day, Samaritan’s Purse and other ministries evacuated their staff due to the unrest.
After waiting for nearly a month for things to settle down, they didn’t!!! Airports and border crossings were closed down and there was no way for us to get into northern Iraq, even though some of the staff were able to return. So much for the plans of man! Now, what does God want us to do Nov. 25-Dec.4??
