I’m sitting in my son’s room at the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto California. My son’s surgery went well, thank God. He’ll be released tomorrow and we’ll head back to New Mexico. Not looking forward to the traffic in Pasadena. It was stand-still traffic through Pasadena on the way here. On second thought, maybe I’ll get a chance to visit my friend Paul Alexander at Azusa Pacific University. Paul is the founder of Pentecostals and Charismatics for Peace and Justice, an organization seeking to restore the peace witness to today’s 500 + million pentecostals and charismatics. No sweat. How fitting that Paul teaches at Azusa Pacific University, just around the corner from the famous Azusa street where the revival that launched world-wide pentecostalism began! I think I’m going to e-mail Paul right now and see if he’ll be up for breakfast or lunch on Tuesday.
Other than that, I’m looking forward to getting back to New Mexico, and also visiting St. Louis in May. Speaking of May, the embassy date where I’ll go and pick up Isaac in Ethiopia is May 24th. I’ll be going by myself. It won’t be easy, but it’s the best option we have right now. Keep us in your prayers!
