Wednesday in Tangier. Sightseeing in the morning. Met with migrants in the afternoon. Heard a particularly heart-wrenching story from one young man. Joyous worship and celebration of 10 years of partnership this evening. So much love and hope.

Incredible sights on the drive to Volubilis and then tour of ancient Roman ruins at Volubilis. I discovered that my traveling companions are very competitive when it comes to playing Count the Cows (and sheep) on the drive to Tangier. My team lost because we conceded defeat too soon. Who knew there would be flocks of sheep in the middle of a city and one more cemetery just around the corner?
This evening we enjoyed the hospitality of the church here in Tangier and met some fellow American travelers who arrived today from Cairo. This group also is focusing on refugee/migrant ministry. Looking forward to spending the day with them tomorrow.

I just wanted to thank all who have offered prayers and well-wishes for our Morocco trip. We feel those prayers. After a safe and uneventful trip, we have enjoyed the sights and sounds of Rabat this afternoon, had a delicious dinner at the church, sat in on part of a lively praise and prayer gathering and been loved on by the most gracious, joyful people I have ever met. Our team is sandwiched between two wonderful congregations of people who extend God's love so freely and openly.
