Last Nite in Amman

Here’s a few pix from our trip to the Gulf.  We’ll post some more to our site later when we have time to cull thru the masses we took over the past few months!
Scott gives direction to Adam while Suzi brightens our corner of the world w/ a bounce.
The Burj is a classic shot from Dubai... but it’s eclipsed by everything else these days.
We’re back in Amman... but only for the night.  We made it in for me to preach at the Sunday evening service.  Adamaya hit the road for MI this evening (don’t envy their trip... 4 legs in 48 hours!).  We’ll be out bright and somewhat early Monday morning for the States... it’s been a great 7 mos in the Middle East. 

We’ll be back... Insha’Allah!

The Last Week

Thanks to all who kept us in prayer over the last weekend. The conference went very well and we had very few hiccups... with the exception that our primary guest speaker from the States had to leave early and we reshuffled the schedule at the last minute. The Lord is good and we made it thru. We had over 150 visitors, including many from the north of Jordan. Much more to come in our newsletter.

At the moment we're in Gulf working with Adamaya... We'll be shooting footage for their presentation on this region and working with various churches here for the next week. Above is a picture of Adam in the Bahrain airport at 6AM... after our 2.30AM departure from Amman. We spent the night in Abu Dhabi and went to church with some of the team there. Today we moved north thru Dubai into Sharjah, one of the Northern Emirates.

Dubai is absolutely amazing. Literally, they are creating a monstrous city of architecturally amazing skyscrapers in the midst of the desert. There are so many buildings under construction at the same time. I canÕt imagine what the urban planning board must be like... much less the ministry of Labor that supplies all internationals that keep the UAE running.

For those who're counting, we'll be home in 6 days... Insha'Allah.
