Welcome to Acts 29 Ministries!

So begins our adventure and history in the making for Acts 29 Ministries. This is the first step in fulfilling the instructions God gave in June, 2008.
Our first full day in Greece. We braved it and took a bus and the metro into downtown Athens. We made it with very little trouble. Linus is an excellent navigator. We got off at the Acropolis. What an amazing sight! We walked around the base of it. Near it was another hill with old, worn, well-polished steps going up. I wanted to use those rather than the modern steps that had been installed for convenience and safety. When we got to the top of this rocky hill you could look out over Athens; buildings went as far as you could see in three directions, with the Parthenon on our right. It was breathtaking.
When we climbed back down and read the sign about the hill, we discovered we had been standing on Mars Hill where Paul preached to the Athenians. When we found that out we had to go back up. Standing where Paul had stood, looking out over this huge city, knowing what Paul had done there - it was beyond words. We actually stood where we had only read about. It brings new life to the Word. What a privilege - what a blessing!
