~Our Sunday ~

Well, we still haven't figured out how to post pics. Thank you for each of your nice comments trying to help solve our problem. The problem is that our computer will not read our camera card, so we cannot get our pictures to upload on our computer. =( After our USA visitors leave, we'll try to work on it some more. I really MISS posting pics...keep praying...God is able to help us figure it out! =D
Yesterday we felt like the devil was trying to discourage us, for everything that we did trying to get ready for the First Christian Nation Church Congress here was turning out backwards. Phillip was working on the translation of our church manual (that he needs to get to the printers this week) and everything was going wrong. Our bank was having problems so we couldn't get any money out to pay bills, etc.
I told Phillip that I felt that the devil was trying to get us down...and that in our weakness God is made strong. We prayed and God started helping us!! Praise Him!!!
Please do pray for the Christian Nation Church Congress! Please pray for those who are going to preach, and for Phillip as he translates all the sermons into Spanish for our people. Thank you!
We have had a wonderful Sunday! God's presence settled down on our service this morning as we sang hymns like "What a Friend we have in Jesus", "Amazing Grace", "He Lives", and "Tell it to Jesus!" Several us were crying as we felt the MASTER in our midst! God's presence makes all the difference in the world. God helped Phillip to preach a very encouraging sermon about God wanting to help us when we are down and discouraged, that he doesn't look at us and say, "They are down again, I think I'll leave them down.." No, he fans our faint flame, He is there to help us...for He wants us to get to Heaven more than we do ourselves!! God is awesome!!
We came home and had Juan Martin and 2 of his children and his nephew over for Sunday dinner. I hadn't planned to have company, but they all helped me and we had a yummy meal and a great time of fellowship. Then went to our Sunday night service.
Until Next time...Keep looking to Jesus!!!

Your post was very encouraging to me! I am so very glad that God does not leave us down but leans down to us and picks us up! We are having a host of things going wrong here too, so we completely understand! I will be praying for God's special presence and annointing for the services you all are having there. And that God will 'heal' your computer as well! ;o)

Dearest Heather,
Praying that Jesus helps you get everything done on time... and lifts your hearts as well. Wish we could shrink ourselves enough to come along with Daryl... missing you and love you much your sister, Laura

Hi Heather!
I'm thankful you had a good Sunday. We had a good one too-Bro Paul Smith preached for us, as Ted and family had the flu, and had to stay home both services. Dad is almost over the flu, and I am in the midst of it-in misery. Our weather here is beautiful-75 degrees at 6:00 in the evening. We love you guys dearly.
Love, Mom D

I have been down all week with an awful cold, and when I'm down physically, everything else seems so much worse! What a blessed promise from God's Word that we are kept by the power of God (not our own) and that trials come to pass for our purification! Amen.

I hope you have enjoyed your visitors from the States. :o)
