Paul in his letter to the Corinthians says

But just as we have the same spirit of faith that is in accordance with scripture—“I believed, and so I spoke”—we also believe, and so we speak, (2 Co 4:13 NRSV)

Good Morning all! Here I am in Stade, Germany.  Just about half an hour by train north west of Hamburg.
Am enjoying some time with my niece Anja, and great nephews: Leandro, Joanna, and Matteo. Will post som pics of them a little later. But now I will post some pics of Singapore to snow you what a wonderful time Judy and I had while there.
The temperature was way too high for walking outside 28 at night and 31 up during the day.
Rachel's sisters were wonderful to us!  We stayed with Laura who is now the youngest in the family (position held by Rachel before).  Spent a day with Yok who lives in Malaysia - visited her son and daughter in law plus the grandchildren then to Yok's place.
We ate all sorts of wonderful food during the whole time we were there saw many sights as well: Sentosa Island; Garden by the bay; Orchid Garden in the botanical garden; Little India; Chinatown; afternoon tea at Raffles hotel.
The trip from Singapore to Hamburg was really long. Over 7 hours to Dubai then three hours in transit most of which time was spent in getting from one plane to the next!  Then another 7 hours to Hamburg.  Then a train from the airport to Central city and a connection to Stade. These 24 hours have given me a wonderful break. This afternoon I travel to Berlin where I will be met by our friend Elke.
Tomorrow is the fateful day we are to get the Belarusian visa, so need you all to pray for us.
