The other night I had my last Romans Bible study here in Iraq before I move to a different location in country. I have been blessed to know these men. Each one seeks to honor God and know Him in all they do. Despite our various backgrounds, both Semi-Pelagian and Calvinist (me being of the latter persuasion), we got through Romans 9 and election unscathed.

I have befriended several of these guys, but one in particular that stands out is Zachariah Spurgeon Maxcey (same middle name as Elijah). We are kindred spirits. You can always count on him for a warm smile and loving exhortation. He will leave the service next year to pursue his Masters of Divinity at either Providence Theological Seminary or Reformed Theological Seminary, depending on where his wife is assigned in her last year of service. Please pray for him as he makes the transition. Two interesting facts about Zach: He’s a West Point graduate and his wife is actually here with him, deployed in Iraq (kind of neat)!

Oh Adina, this is so awesome about Jeremy having a kindred spirit in Iraq to serve with him “shoulder to shoulder”(Zephaniah 3:9) – Awesome!!! You’ll have to send him that quote I posted on my blog entry about our slumber party by Charles Spurgeon, “Friendship is one of the sweetest joys of life. Many might have failed beneath the bitterness of their trial had they not found a friend.” Of course, God is always enough, but I believe God sends sweet friends to encourage and add comic relief along the way! Adina, thanks for being such a sweet friend to me (:
