A Great Week!

So much has happened in the last five days.  We’ve completed our first week of reading sessions, and really enjoyed it.  The one-on-one nature of Let’s Start Talking is really fun because it is so conducive to the formation of genuine friendships and natural conversations.

On Thursday night, we had our first social event.  There were 21 in attendance and everyone had a great time.  It doesn’t hurt that my teammates are professional cooks/event planners!  You could tell that they have some serious experience with event execution.

We decorated outside the Fowler’s house with streamers ad balloons, and enjoyed sandwiches, cookies, and popcorn as we played pictionary with a large group of church members, LST participants, and friends.

Worshipping with the church this morning was great!  After a great deal of time and effort, we finally have power in the new church building.  Each Sunday morning, the church shares breakfast before having an open Bible study, worship, and a sermon.  Today we had the treat of hearing sermons from two of the members, Miguel and Felipe.  Its fantastic to see two capable leaders besides Nicholas in this young congregation!  I was very encouraged to hear their lessons.

Other activities that we shared with our readers this week included visiting a beautiful theater to see a free performance by a string quartet and percussion group, walking through a zoo full of Amazonian plants and animals, and having a great lunch today.  Its nice to have friends who want to share these experiences with us.

  3. Alan, it’s great to see your update and the photos! It’s amazing to remember that on Sunday worship is occurring in God’s church all across the globe. Sometimes it’s all too easy to forget, I’m so thankful for the reminder your message gave. Pls send our hellos and love to the Torres’ and the Fowlers, and the congregation there. May you all encourage each other and glorify God in your work. Kim
