Retired

Have you ever dreamed about your retirement?

Have you ever considered the Biblical principles of retirement?

This man of God did.

This is Mark Jenner. Last week he celebrated his 70th birthday. Two years ago he came to Ecuador as a missionary.
Can a 70 year old man navigate the difficult and uneven streets of Loja?
Can a 70 year old man begin to learn a new language?
Can a 70 year old man have a life full of purpose and God's work?
Mark says yes. And then he proved it possible.
Because of Mark's age, he is returning to Australia for his furlough. If his health checks out, he will be back in a year.

So. What are YOUR plans for retirement?

what a wonderful story. May God bless his journey!

personally I have said many times," Our retirement is actually in heaven." *we shouldn't slow up as long as He gives us breath!
