It happened. It finally happened! There was another wife at the table besides me. Every fall for the last seven years, I’ve been the only woman at a table full of men–all of them longing for marital restoration. During each of our 40-Day Mission Trips in the east, Clint and I have had the humble privilege of meeting with these men and listening to their stories. Their faith-journeys have had a significant impact on our lives and our ministry. Last night, we were impacted once again. The reality that one of the husbands had finally reconciled with his wife after a 7-year divorce hit us so very profoundly. I couldn’t help but grip her hand as we prayed around the table. Her presence there–the delicious fruit of prayer.
