Thursday and Friday the 3rd and 4th, Paula Bates, Bonnie and I finalized a fresh look of the World Evangelism display in preparation for the upcoming Freed Hardeman University Lectureship. Friday, we also packed boxes of books from J.C. Choate/Louis Rushmore Publications to display in the exhibit hall for the lectureship; this is the literature arm of World Evangelism. Saturday morning, Bonnie and I loaded a small trailer and our van for the trip to the lectureship in Henderson, TN. From Winona, MS to there was about three hours. We met Paula and Jerry there in the afternoon to set up the World Evangelism display and J.C. Choate/Louis Rushmore Publications books.

 Jerry had just arrived back in the states Friday night from weeks abroad in Nepal and India; it’ll be several days before he completely adjusts to the 12-hour difference in time zones between the other side of the planet and here. For the next several days, Bonnie and I were fortunate to enjoy the hospitality of Randy Gaddy, a Master’s Program student at FHU. We attended several lectures, renewed acquaintances and friendships as well as distributed literature.

 Sunday the 6th, it was our pleasure to spend the day with the Milledgeville, TN Church of Christ. I taught about the parables of Jesus Christ at the morning Bible class and during the two worship services. I first became acquainted with this small congregation last fall upon our return from India and Burma when I held a three-day Gospel meeting for these brethren.

Wednesday, we scurried out of Henderson, down US 45 into Mississippi and toward Winona. I was scheduled to continue teaching a series of lessons about the identity of the Lord’s church at the West President Church of Christ in Greenwood, MS. We started our homeward journey around 10:30 a.m. to get ahead of another monster winter storm about to buffet the southeastern US. We managed to get home barely ahead of it, but the inches of snow and plunging temperatures resulted in the cancellation of the Wednesday evening class at West President.

 Working up until midnight after the lectures and working still more upon arriving back in Winona, I was able to finish the January issue of Gospel Gazette Online and upload it to the Internet. Yes, I’m late – hardly a desirable situation, but the result of trying to play catch up since our return in November from our mission trips. Of course, other matters like working on manuscripts to be printed next, loading and unload trucks of literature, stateside traveling, eating and sleeping have a tendency to demand attention, too.
