We are the church, whether we are gathered or scattered--each one of us, a part of the body of Christ, wherever we go, whatever we do.
So, where can you find us, and what are we doing?
When I'm at my yearly physical, I often talk to my doctor of the last 21 years about his yearly trips to the Philippines to do medical work for people who can't afford it. This year he took over a hundred doctors and other medical professionals. A couple of years ago I discovered that Five Oaker Jon Eide has gone with him four times to capture the experience on video. (Jon is pictured above with Dr. Q.) In fact, Jon has been on 42 mission trips to 32 countries over the years, all as a videographer for various mission organizations! He missed Dr. Q's trip this year to join us on the Israel trip, and it was the first time he's traveled internationally without all his gear and a big job to do. I think he thoroughly enjoyed that, but I'm sure Dr. Q will be happy to have him available again next year.
