Arrived in Dubai around 11:45 PM. I went to hotel and showered and returned to airport to access wireless connectivity around 1:30 AM. I was able to catch up on some emails and news. The flight to Houston departed at 9:30 AM with expected arrival at 4:45 PM. One more long flight to return home.

When I think of the Safwa I go back to I Thessalonians 1:1-7…

To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:  Grace to you and peace.

We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction.

You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia.

The Holy Spirit is on the move. Come quickly Lord Jesus!

God is so good and glad to be home,

Can’t wait to get some Mexican food, get mobbed by my 3 dogs, and hold my wife (with the last being first!).
