My dear brother in the Lord,
Jim, I just wanted to say a little about my visit. I will not mention your hospitality, nor your graciousness. These are obvious.
I do want to say some things about the conference grounds. I took a few minutes to recall how many nations in which I have held conferences. Some of them have been in places of sheer splendor, such as in Japan, where the situation was so exotic that we were afraid we were going to touch something three hundred years old and hurt it. I put that conference ground at the bottom of my list.
Others were places where there were bugs and infestations bordering on plagues. Of course, these also go pretty close to the bottom of the list, although some of those conferences were wonderful.
When I said I had conducted conferences in eighteen nations, I cannot tell you how many I have conducted in the United States . . . no doubt higher than that.
I am grateful this conference ground has begun. I am sure that as the years go on, the Lord will touch a large number of souls.
The cabins are beautiful, functional, and ideal. I took time to make note of everything you have done with your buildings. I know there are things that often get overlooked in other conference grounds. You have overlooked nothing.
I find it remarkable how thorough the conference grounds have been equipped. I commend you for it. I am fully aware of how much labor has been poured into Capernaum Inn.
Looking at the grounds, I can honestly say I have never seen a more beautiful setting anywhere. With my mind’s eye, I see many believers coining there, strolling the grounds, praying, fellowshipping with the Lord and with one another, and having their lives touched by the Lord.
I do not know how many Christians will visit Capernaum Inn who have actually been to Capernaum, Galilee. I happen to be one of those people. Two thousand years ago, it was His home. I believe that here He will once more find a resting place.
As the Scripture which you have chosen says, “It is here that a great light will shine forth.”
God’s blessings upon you and Sherry, that the birth, and now the future, of Capernaum Inn will be rich and fruitful.
Your brother in the Lord,
