A Good Week
Sunday 28—We worshipped with the Amelia Ward Church of Christ in Linden, Guyana, South America. Louis taught Bible class in the a.m., and he preached during evening service. Brother Nigel presented the morning sermon. As usual, both had great presentations. Morning services started at 8:30 a.m. and ended about 12:30 p.m.
For lunch, we had roast beef, gravy, mashed potatoes, carrots, corn, homemade bread and cake for dessert. Louis was very happy with beef instead of chicken. Chicken is the meat of choice by the Guyanese.
Monday 29—I had the privilege of teaching the Ladies’ class for the Amelia Ward congregation. We sang songs, led by sister Jasmine; the singing was beautiful. We had a very good class.
Tuesday 30, was an off day. Louis again worked on Voice of Truth International and Gospel Gazette Online.
Wednesday, March 1— about 18 from the Amelia Ward congregation, Louis and I loaded into the church bus for almost a 2-hour drive to Georgetown. We had our #15 venue for the nationwide workshops at the Ruimveldt Church of Christ. The service began promptly at 5:00 p.m., at which time Louis preached, and then brother Nigel spoke. We, then, divided the men and the ladies into separate classes. As we were about ready to start class, the electric went off. I pulled out my cell phone and turned the flashlight on; then, I grabbed my tablet, and I was ready to go. Before we could get started, the electric was back on. We had a very enjoyable class. Some of the ladies participated, which made the class more interesting.
Thursday, March 2, about 13 Sun Shiners (the older members of the church from Amelia’s Ward) went on an outing. Louis and I were invited by different ladies on Sunday to go with them. I am glad we decided to go. We had a very good time. Louis had a short devotional before we ate, and my devotional was after we ate, played a game and visited for a while. Louis and brother Nigel made themselves scarce during my part of the program with the Christian sisters. One of the ladies led the song, The Twenty Third Psalm. It was beautiful! Then, I started the devotional by asking for different names of Jesus. I had a lot of participation in this class. It was the best for discussion that I have had this whole trip to Guyana. I believe these ladies are getting used to me.
Saturday 4—we have our last venue with the Robert’s Bush Church of Christ. I am really looking forward to meeting more Christian sisters. I have been so blessed by coming to Guyana. These venues are to build up the churches, but I feel these brothers and sisters are doing more for me than I for them.
Please continue to keep us in your prayers. If the Lord is willing, we will be on a series of two different airplanes next Thursday, March 9, heading for the United States.Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
