I dropped Jim and his family off at the airport early yesterday morning.  They are headed to Romania, and then Greece, for about four weeks.  In the Lord’s timing, our new intern at our church and his family will be house-sitting while the Elliff’s are away. 

Jim will be preaching numerous times on this trip, and the whole family will be involved in various types of ministry, including strengthening relationships with those who are our partners in the gospel.  I know they would all appreciate your prayers (Jim, Pam [the family would be lost without her!], Benjamin [Boyce college student], Bryan [headed to Boyce in the fall], and Laura).
