Announcement trip Barend&Diny

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us.

(Psalm 62 vs 5-8)

Apeldoorn, 15 October 2014
Dear friends,
Married for 35 years!
This year on August 15th it was 35 years since Diny and I were spoken to by Nol Esmeijer on the occasion of our wedding. At that occasion he quoted from the Bible passage mentioned above. Now, 35 years later we can witness that this Psalm has been confirmed in our lives many times during the past 35 years!

On the occasion of having been married for 35 years we went to the Belgian Ardennes for a weekend together with our children and their three partners and our two grand-daughters. We look back very thankfully on all the blessings the Lord has given us as a family and in our work. For the future we can simply rely on the text: “Trust the Lord at all times!”
Next trip
I am very thankful that I will be able to make my next trip to Guyana together with Diny. We both hope to be able to leave on November the 11th. Diny will return on December the 5th. I expect being back on December the 31th.
After our arrival in Paramaribo we will continue our flight a few days later to the interior in order to attend a conference in Maripasoula in French Guyana.  After that we will go to Eastern Surinam via Paramaribo and then cross the river at Albina heading for Saint Laurent.

We will also be visiting several small communities. Recent developments regarding the Église Chrétienne Évangélique at St. Laurent gives a lot of strife and keeps us busy also. We are asking ourselves to what extent we will still be able to do something positive there.
We have announced our coming and many are looking forward to seeing us again, and especially to seeing Diny after quite a number of years.     
We are very thankful for all the financial support and we’ll really appreciate all your prayers regarding the preparation of our trip and also for the trip itself.

Many greetings,
Barend & Diny
