Fifty and Seventy Five

I just noticed that yesterday was an eventful day for P&P in that the last state (Idaho) yet to visit here came last night at 11:06 p.m. from a reader in Twin Falls, Idaho. Whoever you are, thanks for reading! Earlier yesterday, there was a visitor from Yemen which made for the 75th country to visit P&P as well. Last month, I started to randomly check in to see from what countries folks were coming from, and here is the of the 75 countries. I thought it was neat to see how interconnected we are:

Argentina, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cote D’Ivoire, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, El Salvador, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Guam, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Korea (Republic of), Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Mongolia, Namibia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Palestinian Territory [Occupied], Peru, Philippines, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Togo, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Yemen.
When I look at these countries, I am reminded that there are many brothers and sisters in heavily persecuted places and other places where there are missionaries whom I know and love serving King Jesus among a people who have yet to proclaim His praise. Yes, as Patrick Johnstone says, the world is bigger than you think.

Blogging is amazing. I'm really looking forward to Band of Bloggers. Any indication of an international component there (besides us Canadians)?

As far as I know, there will be folks from Australia and possibly the U.K. coming as well.

Looking forward to it!
