Rob Young, Chad & Ashely Tierney all arrived home safe to God's glory from Israel this afternoon. If you catch them ask them about the Locust story...it shed's some major light on the way God used locusts and locust imagery in the Bible [Exodus 10; Judges 6:5; 7:12; Psalm 105:34; Proverbs 30:27; Isaiah 33:4; Jeremiah 46:23; 51:14; 51:27; Joel 1:2; Amos 7:1; Nahum 3:17; Matthew 3:4; Mark 1:6; Revelation 9]. Evidently the Middle-Eastern locusts aren't as piddly as the ones we have here!

Rob called me about an hour and a half ago. Just wanted to give you an update if you had been praying for this mission trip! God is Good!
