The second full week back home in GA did not have anything extraordinary on the church calender. It was refreshing for sure to have a "siesta" for a bit. The only major change this week was that we moved from the place we were staying with a couple from our church (THANKS SO MUCH GUYS!!) to house-sit for another family in our church who are on vacation. It’s nice to be part of a church that loves us and sacrifices for us to have a place to stay.
The relaxed church calender provided us with some time to pursue more relationships. We had 5 get togethers this week with people to explain our future ministry in Paraguay and how they could be involved. Very encouraging things happened in these meetings and are looking forward to the future as God grows our partnership team.
We also had a meeting this morning on our upcoming Church outreach VBS here in the community. We are doing a VBS called "Crocodile Dock" in a community here in the area. None of the 70 kids who are signed up are from our church. This is all community. We are looking forward to seeing how the week plays out, and to continue getting our hands dirty with fellow First Baptist folks.
Speaking of First Baptist we were also happy to unload our new Youth Pastor’s family U-Haul last night. The Norris’ just moved down from NC to work with our youth, and as of last night they are officially here. The many hands made light work, and again it put a smile on our faces being with everyone.
Thanks for your continued prayers during this busy summer.
