Those whom the Lord has ransomed will return; they will enter Zion with a happy shout. Unending joy will crown them, happiness and joy will overwhelm them; grief and suffering will disappear.
Lord, we await the time in just a few short weeks when Father Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia Mudge will return to the U.S. May they have a happy time visiting family and friends. May they find joy in everything that they do. And we also pray for their next assignment. Whatever that is, Lord, we pray that unending joy will crown them and happiness and joy will overwhelm them as they work for You in the name of Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Lord, guide and direct the Mudges. Help them to settle all their concerns, little and big, as they prepare to move all of their things back to Albany. Be with them as they finish up their ministry in Peru. Thank You, Lord. Amen.
