This morning we walked to catch our bus to church, only to find out it had just passed. But, thank the Lord, another one came a few minutes later! Got to church and had a good service, with a good turn out. For offertory, Kimberly played her arrangement of "Jesus Loves Me" that she had arranged for Sarah's graduation...then we turned to that number in our Spanish song books and the whole congregation sang all 3 verses...WHILE KIMBERLY PLAYED! She did a good job. I'm going to start teaching Kimberly and Sarah songs out of our Spanish hymnbook (there are lots of new ones, in minor keys, etc.) that way they can play for the offertories, and then afterwards we as the congregation will sing along with them AS THEY PLAY...for this will be GREAT practice for them, and we can continue to teach our people new songs. I want to raise 2 piano players for Jesus! On the way home, we got into the SMALL bus, (a little larger than a VAN) and there were 55 of us PACKED IN THERE, and 21 of us were packed LIKE Q-TIPS STANDING in the SMALL aisle (trying to NOT fall over with each BUMP)!!!! I wanted to get a picture of this, but it was impossible to capture!
Got home earlier than usual, and got to eat, and take a baby nap...PRAISE THE LORD!
Went to church and got into another crowded bus. Thank the Lord, some lady that had a seat offered to hold both Sarah and Noah, for I had my hands FULL...standing in the aisle, holding on to the keyboard, and TRYING NOT TO FALL! I prayed that God would give me a seat, and thankfully I did get one later on in the hour-long trip.
We had a good service tonight, and a good crowd too. Today, we taught both of our churches 3 new choruses from Steve Green's "Hide Them in Your Heart" CD...in Spanish. They are Scripture verses set to cute music...and our people really enjoyed learning them...a GREAT way for our people to remember God's Holy Word. (Especially since some of our people CAN'T READ THE BIBLE!) God helped us today...and for that WE REALLY THANK HIM!!
