In our last Update, we shared about our friends Bryan and Del Coupland and his book “Come Rest with Me” and his interview with Gracia Burnham. We have heard how that was a blessing to folk receiving our Updates, and want to share something else Bryan shared which brought tears of JOY to our hearts:
Dear Team Members,
How we THANK the Lord for each of you and the bond we have in Him
How THANKFUL we are for His Word that ALWAYS encourages our hearts!!!!
It is His Word that keeps us going! I would like to share a portion of an email we received from special friends, Bryan and Del Coupland, a while back. We first met Bryan and Del in August of 1969, in Durham Ontario Canada, when we started specialized missionary training to reach unreached ethnic people. Bryan has personally dealt with cancer, as well as Del recently. He wrote the book “Come Rest in Me”, which is such a blessing. Bryan has given us permission to share the following for which we can say a BIG AMEN!!!
