Our city is full of contrasts–from beautiful flowers in old, five gallon buckets to the way women from different generations dress—I can’t venture onto the streets without sensing the tension between old and new. What will be kept? What will be lost? Can the frenzy of change be sustained? We are so thankful to our Father for leading us to this place at a time when people are searching for peace and for answers. Please pray that we will be faithful to make His name known at every opportunity, and that we will always be prepared to give the reason for our hope.
