To give you a brief update on our Vacation Bible school we are going to have ended up getting canceled due to rain. After months of no rain the week we plan to have an event which parts of it would have been outside we had to make the tough call and cancel until Easter break. We will be prepared for the next time we start it as we are already set with our curriculum, crafts, and games. Now we need to pray that God would hold back the rain for that week as well. Just to give you an idea of some of the reasons, we canceled because of rain. If you have ever lived somewhere where it doesn't snow, what happens when it snows? Everything get shut down. The whole way of life get thrown out of whack. If it is raining here, and you have an event, no one will come. People are weary of getting cold and wet in fear of getting sick, which after living here for 5 years now, I believe them. There are a lot of people around us who have sore throats and coughing. I guess it doesn't really matter that the temperature only moves about 20 degrees from the morning the middle of the day.
I (Andy) am starting a men's bible study on Thursday evenings with another church. There is a possibility of 10 guys coming together. Now if that happens we shall see tonight. We are going to be going through a study on the book of Romans. It is important to have some biblical grounding to the these men. I would say that besides me and the other pastor, the longest any of these guys has been a Christian is less than two years. I am looking forward to getting to know these guys. My prayer is that they will be open and receptive of what God wants to teach us through His word.
If you haven't checked our photo page in a while, I have loaded a few family youtube videos. I will be adding more photos in the coming days.
