During his preaching journeys, the apostle Paul used several of the famous Roman roads. On the way to Rome as a prisoner he traveled the Appian Way (Latin Via Appia).
There we found brothers and were invited to stay with them for seven days. And so we came to Rome. And the brothers there, when they heard about us, came as far as the Forum of Appius and Three Taverns to meet us. On seeing them, Paul thanked God and took courage. And when we came into Rome, Paul was allowed to stay by himself, with the soldier who guarded him. (Acts 28:14-16 ESV)
Dearest Brother Ferrell, Heren, from Europe, Holland, in a neighbouring town of Rotterdam City. I owe you many many thanks for the numerous jewels of messages, insights, comments and fabulous pictures. Bringing so much additional depth to what one experiences in daily life with God and His Word. For many years I’ve been enjoying & embracing & swallowing all of that. And have been forwarding that to many other people. The sweet & balanced, God thoroughly loving spirit, which is so visable in your writing, lifts me up in turn, every time. Thank you, thank you, thank you brother! When even a big fan of you like myself only dares writing to you once in 5 or 10 years, you may imagine how large your “footprint” is, worldwide! So much larger than you can imagine. My heart cried out when your wife moved to live with our heavenly Father and Saviour. But later also I rejoyced when reading the Lord later granted you another spouse & compagnon. Extremely happy with your renewed messaging. May the Lord continue blessing you in everything you do.
