Missionary visit

Wednesday evening, we enjoyed a visit from a missionary, who presented his work in the ministry. He's been serving for well over forty years, and it was fascinating watching the slides of his life's work. Along with working with a hospital in what was then called East Pakistan, he has planted or rescued churches practically all over, including here in NYC. It was really neat to see the life journey of a couple who has literally been through the wars. He's now twenty years past what the doctors gave him to live (he had to leave Bangladesh because of extremely serious health problems), and figures he still has a few more miles and few more years left on his body. It was an interesting and challenging presentation.
