Salonique teaching

Dear brothers and sisters,

Greetings to you in the name of Our Great God and Lord, Jesus Christ!

I am glad to finally have the time to write to you all. My schedule is even crazier this summer. I am teaching a class at the Bible College. It is a three-hour class every day (Monday-Friday). It takes another three hours to get ready at night and early morning.

Salonique and one of his sons

Plus, I have to do my job as a dad and it is vacation time so the children are home the whole day, but I still have the chores of getting ready for message, lesson, etc. On top of all these things, my computer has not been working for 2 weeks now. Today it is working again after Micah spent many hours on it, but it is on and off and you do not even have a warning when it will go off. Any way, that is my situation for now with my laptop.

Last week we had a seminar to train our people how to welcome each other and especially new visitors. We are getting a lot more visitors now. Between the Junior worship and the adult service we had almost twenty visitors last Sunday. We had about 420 people in the worship service. Micah and I did the training. We had about 35 people who came for it. It lasted the whole day so we ate together at the end and it was a lot of fun.

Washing the bus

Also last weekend, Micah, Oslet, one of several people whom we will ordain as a deacon, and brother Wilson, whom we will consider next year as deacon, decided to wash the bus. It was a total cleaning inside out. Now the bus looks very good.

Talking about ordination, we will ordain two elders and four deacons on August 10th. We hope to increase the amout every year. We continue to pray and work for biblical elders and deacons. I gave a series of sermons on biblical leadership last month and we will have another seminar on August 8th. On August 9th, we will spend time in prayer with the prospective elders and deacons and they will be ordained on the 10th. Pray for these men.

Last Sunday we had an exceptionally great service which was well planned, Spirit-filled and the people sang at the top of their lungs. It was fun to be part of the service. I am now preaching a series on the promises of God. Last Sunday it was “Ask and you shall receive”, this coming Sunday, “I am with you always even to the end of the age.” Pray for my studies for this series.

We thank God for all who give to Living Water. I thank God for Ray and Joan Conn. This couple has been working in Haiti for almost 10 years. They have just given 5,000 USD toward the cafeteria. Beginning this week, work on the cafeteria will resume. Pray that we may find the rest of the money that we need to complete the project. It will be 10-12000 USD. May God bless the Conns.

Thanks to all of you who pray for us. You know this is a tough job, but with your continual prayers we will be able to work in a manner pleasing to God.
