Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

Linda and I walked from Matoke Inn before dawn to Lindsay Cottages which has a nice garden restaurant with a view of the Eastern Horizon. We reminisced over many fond Easter Sunrise memories from Williamsport, PA. We rejoiced in the faithfulness of God for another day, another continent to experience Sonrise, another precious time to embrace Love and GRACE and REST. We read the resurrection account in all four gospels as the sun crested the distant hill. We reflected upon the Sabbath rest of the completed work of Jesus – His body rested in the tomb over the Sabbath when his Redemptive work was finished – we also have the opportunity to rest in His completed work – our work / rest  is to BELIEVE in (Jn 6:29), to REST  in (Mt.11:28-30), to ABIDE in (Jn.15) THE CRUCIFIED AND RESSURECTED ONE. Ah, may I do so more completely this day, this week, this year.

It was just a couple days after having been asked to be the long term Regional Executive Officer for AIM Central Region. It was a role I could barely imagine filling. I’d rather sit in old familiar seats.

Now my first morning in Adi, Congo, I’m back in the seat of a Massey Ferguson. I was comfortable in those seats fifty years ago as a Florida farm boy. Again today, it felt good, although scraping dirt from an ant hill taller than the tractor was new on my list of farming activities.

Two hours later, I was in clean clothes being welcomed by the singing Bible Institute students in a royal “Big Man” welcome. Surprisingly, that seat felt comfortable also. Despite feeling unworthy to represent the century old presence of AIM and receive their welcome and hear their requests, it was a joy to worship and pray with them and to encourage them that “It’s all about Jesus!”

Perhaps I needed the reminder more than they. It’s not all about seats in which we expect to be comfortable.

On the road to Arua. Yup after two weeks of no travel we are taking the 7 hour bus trip to Arua, Uganda. The bus and roads are smooth enough for reading so it should be a good day. Arua was our home in 2004-5 so we have many memories and friends there. We will spend only one night there before going on by road to Adi, Congo, on Sunday to visit our three AIM missionaries there. This will be a first time for us to visit Adi.

Some of our readers, especially those from Agape, will remember the road trip from Kampala to Arua 8-10 years ago. Now the roads are paved all the way and most traffic travels north of Murchison Falls Park so we don’t do the ferry boat Nile crossing and see all the animals we used to enjoy in the days we had to travel through the Park. Our bus today touched the northwest corner of the Park at Pakwach but the only animals we saw were some hippos. At Karuma Falls bridge however there were the usual baboons sauntering as sentinels of the roadways.
