A Week Gone By

Sunday, January 26, Bonnie and I worshipped in the a.m. with the Old Union Church of Christ in Carroll County, Mississippi. That evening, we worshipped with the brethren of the West President Church of Christ in Leflore County, Mississippi.

Wednesday, our trip to Jackson, MS, where I was to teach the auditorium class for the Siwell Road Church of Christ, was cancelled due to inclement, winter weather. Therefore, we changed course and attended Bible class with the Elliott Church of Christ in Grenada County, Mississippi.

Thursday, among other things, we shipped 54 cases of The Voice of Truth International. All week, Bonnie and I were busy finishing our lessons for our February mission trip to Guyana, South America. In addition, we attended other duties that typically punctuate our days at the World Evangelism Building (warehouse/office complex).

Friday, we drove to Collierville, TN to the home of our daughter Rebecca.

Saturday was a travel day! We reluctantly arose at 3 a.m. to go to the Memphis International Airport. From there, we flew to Charlotte, NC, before flying onward to Miami, Fl. Our third plane ride for the day took us to Georgetown, Guyana, with a stopover in Port of Spain in the Atlantic Ocean. Finally, we bedded down in Linden, Guyana around 1 a.m. Guyanese time.

Sunday, Bonnie and I worshipped with the Amelia’s Ward Church of Christ in Linden. No one takes a count, but the building was packed—with maybe 400 present. The week prior, even more attended, requiring extra seating to be brought from classrooms—and some still had to stand. A larger building is under construction on the adjacent lot—being built by church member labor.

It was my pleasure to speak for both the class and the worship. In the Bible class, I showed the congregation the PowerPoint that I showed in the States about our 2013 Nationwide Seminars in Guyana. For worship, I preached “Which Covenant.”

Monday, we will begin the seminar program throughout Guyana by traveling by small plane to Lethem on the Brazilian border. Tuesday and Wednesday by day we will have the seminar for members of the church, and by night, we will have a Gospel meeting. Last year, 170 showed up for the evening program. This year, Bonnie will teach ladies, while Latchmenarine “Joe” Latchmenarine (yes, his first name and his last name are the same—no, not one name, but the same name twice!) and I teach the men and combined sessions. More details and pictures to follow, God willing.
