Sunday @ Floodway

Posted on Aug 14, 2016

We had a wonderful time with the church at Floodway.  There were about 50 of us altogether.  Some did not attend because of the torrential rains the night before.  The service was a blessing and the fellowship was too.

The service was about 2 hours long.  The first hour was a time of singing, sharing and observing the Lord’s table.  Several of the men got up and shared from the Word.  Brent shared from our studies in Philippians 2 and had the other guys come up to recite the verses we have memorized already.  Because the church is affiliated with the Brethren denomination the women do not share up front.

The second hour was called the preaching service.  It also lasted about an hour.  I preached on the theme- God is good–from Psalm 119:68.  We considered the meaning and the implications of this truth that God is good and does good; that God always meets with His own approval and always does that which He approves of, which is, of course, to honor Himself;

Following the morning service the team went out for lunch (Pizza Hut!) with the Nichols and Pastor Bong and his family.  We had a great time of fellowship.

After lunch Robby took the kids (the “future” he calls them) and went off to have manicures, pedicures, and massages.  The boys also played basketball at the open gym at Faith Academy.  The “Present/Past” (we adults) came back to the guesthouse to rest.

Today we are off to New Beginnings Bible Camp.  I anticipate that this will be our most prolonged challenge yet.  Although we have had plenty of rain and heat already, this time there will be no air conditioned rooms to retreat to.

We will be there until Wednesday helping with whatever we can at the camp as well as interacting with the boys.  The ladies will spend part of tomorrow at Shalom birthing house.  We look forward to what the Lord has in store for us.

Thank you for your prayers.  We appreciate the interest and concern that you have shown for us and the way in which you have been standing with us in this work.  May the Lord encourage you as you serve together with us.
