We arrived home last night at 7:30 pm EST and 1:30 am Norwegian time. It is very good to be home! I am sure that it will take a few days to just recover a bit but we are so thankful to God for all that He has done during these last 36 days. It has been an amazing adventure and we have met lots of amazing people along the way. I had the chance to read all of our 35 daily blogs while riding on the bus from the airport to our home. It seems like we have packed so much more than 35 days into this trip! Praise God!
Today's photo is our "Little Norge" lion getting adjusted to his new surroundings in Canada. Thanks to everyone for their prayers and words of encouragement along the way. We continue to hold Norway in our hearts and every person that we were able to encounter in this great nation.
We pray that the Lion of Judah (our elder brother by the way...) will continue to roar over the hearts and minds of all our Norwegian brothers and sisters and that Norway will return as a nation to its deeply Christian roots.
When I think of Norway, I think of the Bible verse from Isaiah 66:8...
Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children. NIV
May a powerful revival of love sweep across Norway, and Canada and every other nation around the world in the coming days!
In Father's amazing love,
Barry & Anneliese
P.S. We will start our live online meetings again next week and we are hoping that we will have some more Norwegian friends joining the meetings for Europe from time to time. :)
