The Past Few Days

Sunday morning, December 15, we worshipped with the Old Union Church of Christ in the morning. We drove a big circle (or maybe a triangle), shopping for some clothes in Greenwood, MS (after we lunched) before driving to Grenada, MS (only to find the store closed). We completed the circuit by driving back to Winona, MS.

Sunday evening, I spoke for the Huntsville Church of Christ outside of French Camp, MS. I made a PowerPoint presentation about my 2013 Mission Trips to Myanmar and Guyana. As always, we were received like family. After all, we are the family of God—brothers and sisters in Christ.

Monday through Wednesday morning we attended sundry routine duties at the office. We had a Winona World Evangelism Team meeting to work out how to proceed with production and distribution of The Voice of Truth International worldwide. Shipping has become a daunting task with astronomical increases in shipping.

In the middle of Wednesday afternoon, Bonnie and I made our way down to Jackson, MS so I could teach the auditorium, adult Bible class for the Siwell Rd. Church of Christ; I’m teaching the Book of Job. On the way, we ate supper and after which found ourselves trapped in a colossal traffic jam several miles long approaching the malfunction junction of I-55 and I-20. We arrived back home after Bible class at about 11 p.m.

Thursday, we worked at the World Evangelism Building in both the office and warehouse. It was kind of a frustrating day, and we closed with frustration—trying to get the printing equipment to work satisfactorily. I was able to print some order forms, but I gave up trying to print envelopes. I was hoping that the miles driven hauling hundreds of pounds of equipment to a repair site and paying money would have resolved the problems the equipment was experiencing. Unfortunately, both presses are not operating correctly to some degree; one is not operational at all. Ironically, the problem I am having with that machine was characteristic of its twin when I took them in for repair, but not this one. Now the twin works, but the other one has taken on the other’s symptom—almost like it is a contagious disease that they are sharing! Repairman assured me both machines were working; sadly, that is not the case.

This evening, I updated the links for Gospel Gazette Online. A couple of days prior, I finally caught up in posting months of lauds respecting GGO and our overall labors for the Lord. There is always something that I should have done and didn’t get around to doing it yet; the list is gargantuan. There will always be another day—unless there isn’t, and then it won’t matter anyway.
