Why am I recalling some of these experiences. In Revelation 2, Jesus in addressing the church at Ephesus he said to them " Remember from where you have fallen..." "Remember" this what I am doing, remembering. There was a Seminary project every Spring in which students would go to pioneer areas and spend a week working and preaching to help strengthen the work there. Dr. Fish was the director of this and he shared in class about this project. The Lord convicted me that I should go. I hesitated and finally went by Dr.. Fish office. When I went in he said he had just gotten off the phone with a pastor in Maine and he was looking for someone to come. I said I would go. I had to look on a map to see where I was going. How was I going to get there was the big question? I talked with the pastor of my home church and told him what I had done. In a few days, he called me and said that the church would pay for a plane ticket to Maine for me. The "hand of the Lord was upon us."
