Friends forwarded this blog post from the father of a young man named Isaiah: Isaiah’s upcoming mission trip.
His mission field? The hospital in Portland where he is getting surgery to get metal rods in his back.
His tool? An iPad where he watches videos of Pastor John preaching. Isaiah is 7 years old.
I didn’t think my respect or affection for Pastor John could increase any higher, but reading this blog post took me to a new level, with tears of gratitude for the 28 years he served as my pastor, for how he lead us through suffering by pointing us to Jesus, and for the kindness he extended to a boy and his parents in Portland, Oregon.
Please, read that post and let us pray for Isaiah next week.
