I’m an “Obsolete Essential!” I’m not sure how I feel about that. I confess to a bit of wounded pride over the obsolete part, but on the other hand, it’s good to be needed even if it does involve a bit of head banging. What am I talking about? The Cambodians do much of what we do far better. Quite frankly, I am often a distraction.
There are few things I enjoy more than traveling in the countryside, but I am not a tourist. Everything we do needs to reflect back on a benefit to the Church.Pastor Peter, our national church president, and some of our “Young Tigers” demonstrated this with a trip to Rattanakiri.
Oh, how I wanted to be there! But, that wouldhave been a disaster! Despite my insistence to the contrary, when I am there, everyone looks to “Pa.” When I’m gone they are forced into the arms of the Holy Spirit. “But wisdom is justified by her children” (Matt 11:19) even if some of the “Geezers” do pout (name withheld to protect the guilty).
