My good friend and Jesus follower, Tristan, traveled to his homeland and has recently returned to Anchorage. A good picture of sun and surf is good for my soul. By the way, have you noticed the palm trees mentioned in Revelation?
Tristan gave me a wonderful gift from the Philippine Islands (The Philippines has 7000 Islands). The gift is a replica of a Spanish Galleon ship. It is the same type of ship that the missionaries boarded when they took the glorious Gospel to the Islands. The ship was made by a man who traveled many hours to Boracay Island just to make a bit of money. Tristan bought it for me from that gentleman.
Everyone, enjoy the beach!
