Linda, do you know what this poem reminds me of? That old hymn we used to sing at Nyack. "To the regions beyond, I must go, I must go, for the story has never been told....." Remember that one?

I had two sisters, both Nyack grads, who were Alliance missionaries with their husbands; one to the Philippines and one to West Africa. They would have been at Nyack before you. Both sisters had children who returned to the field when they were grown.

Billy Graham once said that the first thing he looks for when he visits a church is what evidence the church shows for supporting foreign missions and thus hastening the return of Jesus.

Thrilling, isn't it?
