Hi Friends

Posted by: Scalpel At The Cross on Monday, July 27, 2015

Hi Friends! We are one week away from a July 31st departure! It seems surreal until we look around and see the boxes and bits of our lives being packed away or taken along in trunks.

Our new address:
Apt. 22, Pucallpa, Peru

Stateside address:
3638 Snelling Ave. N.,
Arden Hills, MN 55112

Mission Website:
www.scalpelatthecross.org (includes Scalpel’s updates, blog with prayer letters, articles, and updates, information for giving)

Email addresses:
Dan: dan.porch@gmail.com
Laurie: porchfamily@gmail.com

If you would like a physical prayer card, please respond to this email with your mailing address, and we will send one your way.

For our local friends, there will be a farewell dessert this Sunday, July 26, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at the Eliason residence (4571 W. County Road J, Shoreview, MN 55112). Please respond to this email with an RSVP if you plan to stop by.

Speaking of a new address…our verses from this morning spoke of a better residence: He who DWELLS in the shelter of the Most High will ABIDE in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.” Psalms 91: 1-2

Pressing onward,

Dan & Laurie

Trivia: Our new Peru address was Dan’s address 40 plus years ago … and the wooden trunk in the picture accompanied Dan’s parents to their first overseas assignment in the Dominican Republic in the late ‘50s.
