Well, the young lady and her mom that we met yesterday didn't come this morning. I'm disappointed, but not surprised. Over the years, we've come to understand that a lot of people will say they'll be there, but then Sunday morning comes and either something else comes up, they get sick, oversleep - something happens to keep them from coming to church! Most people probably have every intention of coming, but something keeps them away at the actual time.
We had a lower attendance than usual this morning. One of our Filipino couples has flown back to the Philippines for a couple of weeks to visit the wife's father. He's been very sick recently, and for a while thought that he might pass away, but he has recovered somewhat. They wanted to go and see him again. The good thing is that, while he was so sick in the hospital, the wife's brother went to see him and witness to him, and he got saved!
That's about it for this afternoon. The weather is fantastic this weekend - clear skies, temperatures in the low 60's. It's just perfect! The forecast is for rain to start by next weekend, and this time of year, once the rain starts, fall has officially arrived and you don't see much sunshine again till late next spring. So our family is learning to enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!
