When a Hat is not Just a Hat

This is one of the last selfies I ever took with my beloved Australian leather hat.

That hat (originally purchased in the Queen Victoria Market) was a big part of my identity for the first years of ministry in SVG. Especially because it kept me from getting sunburned, and covered up my bald spot 🙂

It was more than just a hat though…

It was a connection to the country of Australia where I served, until the Lord led me to Saint Vincent.

That hat didn’t just symbolise Australia for me, but the relationships and friendships made during years of ministry there.

And though he hats long gone, their influence upon my heart remains.

I am grateful for the privilege God has given me to serve Him proclaiming the Gospel in foreign countries. And I’m grateful fo the friendships that drew me closer to the Lord along the way.
