Wow - that was a fast week. :)
I knew that I was going to be going non stop this past week and it was a blur. We had our Wednesday night service and then left Thursday morning for the men's camping. We got back on Saturday and had a great Sunday with Pastor Edgar including a fellowship at our home. On Monday we went to Blair Drummon Safari park to celebrate Benson's 18th birthday and our 22nd wedding anniversary which was on the Friday of the men's camp out. Yesterday morning I was dropped off at the airport at 6:15 to fly to Ireland for some prayer and fellowship time with Pastor Les Hill. I returned home last night at 11 PM.
I praise the Lord for good friends in the ministry. I really needed the time yesterday with a fellow minister to strengthen my hands. We also did some evangelism yesterday afternoon. Pastor Hill's son, Josiah, and I knocked on doors, while Pastor Hill knocked other doors by himself. We had some great Gospel conversations. Please pray for fruit from our labours.
God gave me two opportunities at the airport last night as well. Our plane was delayed an hour and so I got out my Bible to read it. An older woman beside me after hearing I was a minister said to me, "I wondered how you could be so peaceful. Now I understand." She said, "Oh, you've got your book. What a nice book that is." She was referring to the quality of my Bible.
I began speaking to her about Peace being found in Jesus and took her through the Roman's Road in the Word of God. Please pray for this lady to be saved. She knows that addictions (cigarette's/ drink) do not satisfy.
Thank you for keeping up with our work for your prayers for our family and ministry. On Wednesday nights we are doing a verse by verse study through 1 Timothy. Tonight our text for our Bible study is, 1 Timothy 6:12-14 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
