Hey Thomas. I’m glad you had that experience in Omaha. Learning about the city of Edessa fascinated me as well. I also thought it was interesting to think about the difference between a church growing out of Persia and a church growing out of Rome. The former doing mission work in places dominated by various other religions and the latter doing mission work in a place dominated by people of pagan religions.
