There were several testimonies of how God is helping our people. We sang a trio and Kimberly played an offertory. (You have to understand that we JUST now started taking offerings, and that's b/c our people asked us to take offerings. Before we came, there was a miss. family who took offerings but didn't use the money for what they said they would AND THE GUERRILLA CAME AND KILLED THE WHOLE FAMILY! Sooooo, we have told our people that we are saving up their money and as soon as we can they will pay the rent on the church building, not us. =) We rushed home and we had been home 5 minutes when a young man named Jonathan got to our house.
He wants to attend Hobe Sound soon, but needs to practice his English. (It was A "REAL MINISTRY" for we GBS'ers to help prepare a student to go to HOBE SOUND....JUST KIDDING!!!! =) So we invited him over to chat in English and to eat Sunday dinner with us.
For Sunday dinner I made: Kimberly N's. LA Rice, Baked Chicken, a salad, homemade bread, a fresh fruit juice to drink (Made out of Lulo), and THIS IS WHAT WE HAD FOR DESSERT...Kimberly N.'s LA Lemon Pie. Thanks for the recipe girl!
Jonathan was here until we ran out the door for our evening service. We had a nice visit with him, and he seemed to enjoy himself too. We got on a VERY crowded bus headed to church, and we kept hearing chickens...then we realized that the man in front of us had one in his back pack. Then, a man plopped down beside Phillip holding a live chicken,
and another man got off holding a chicken, then another got off holding 3 bags with chickens. Don't ask me what all the chickens were about, but it was interesting trying to SNEAK AND TAKE pics of them. =)
As we rode into the town where our church is, we saw that part of a mountain had JUST slid...and ambulances were arriving...Hopefully no one was hurt! (We tried to get a pic, but missed it.) We got to church, and Jason and Diana (the parents that just lost their baby) came to our church for the 2nd time today. They attend our morning church, which is an HOUR AWAY FROM OUR EVENING CHURCH...so it was VERY special to have them attend. We had a good service and nearly 30 people there. PRAISE THE LORD! God is helping our little churches, and our people to grow in Him. I so wanted to have Diana and Jason over, but it didn't work out. Please keep praying for them and for the other people of our churches!
~Kimberly & I on the bus...notice our suitcase, keyboard & stand at our feet.~
On the way home, Phillip was holding Noah, who fell asleep...so Sarah moved over in the bus to sit beside Phillip and to help hold the sleeping Noah...and THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED....
THANKS BUNCHES FOR YOUR PRAYERS!
