Another Lord’s Day in the Ward

The Amelia’s Ward Church of Christ in Linden, Guyana, South America assembled for Bible class and worship today—from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (local time). That’s four hours—non-stop! Martha and I were privileged to be among that number. Though no count was taken, the large, modern auditorium was well populated with members of the Lord’s church from two congregations and visitors. The preacher and some of the members of the Coomaka Church of Christ attended, and the minister preached during morning worship; his lesson was thorough, timely and well presented.

Prior to that, I taught Bible class, presenting my lesson, “Come Meet Jesus Christ as a Historical Person.” That evening for the 6 p.m. worship, I made my PowerPoint presentation, “Come Meet Jesus Christ as Mediator, Intercessor and Advocate.”

The day was accented with a fine meal of roast beef, mashed potatoes, carrots, corn, homemade bread sticks and chocolate cake; sister Jasmine and her mother sister Bernadine made the sumptuous feast. Martha and I topped the afternoon off with a nap—trying to recoup some much needed rest from the past week’s early starts, as well as trying to bank away rest for the upcoming dark-of-night forays to new, distant haunts as our nationwide seminars resume on Tuesday.

Monday morning through lunchtime, Martha and I intend to accompany brothers and sisters on door knocking and home studies. Monday evening, Martha is slated to teach the weekly ladies’ Bible class. Tuesday, Lord willing, we fly by small plane to the border of Brazil at Lethem, Guyana—where we will be for a few days.

Happily, Martha is enjoying Guyana and the brethren here as much as I have through the present. The joy we derive from serving the Lord abroad amongst such loving brethren who relish every opportunity to immerse themselves in deeper Bible study is all the reward that either of us want. We are having a blast! Martha and I are undergirding each other’s spirits and experiencing happiness that we had not known for quite a while since the passing of our beloved spouses. All of this and having been friends already for about 25 years, it seems as though we have been married for years rather than less than a month, and we have found our niche in harness for our Lord.
