We had a good attendance for Mother's Day yesterday! We gave a special gift to each mother there - we had seven of them. Our monthly average attendance has gone up by 2 or 3 in the past month; the Lord has been good to send many people our way lately.
My Sunday school class finished up our lessons on David this week. The very last thing was how God promised David that there would always be a king in his line to sit on his throne in Jerusalem, with a condition: the king and the people had to obey God's laws. We know from history, down through our present day, that the people have not obeyed God, hence no king on the throne today. But one day . . . one day, Jesus will return to earth to reign as King of kings, and He will sit upon David's throne in Jerusalem, because His earthly lineage is of David! The kids really enjoyed that, and so did I!
Next Sunday, my father-in-law will be preaching for the morning service. We won't have a service at the rec centre on Sunday night due to the Victoria Day holiday weekend. So we're having a cookout, games, and devotional time here at our house next Sunday night. I'm glad it worked out that way, because our people will get to know my in-laws a little better than just meeting them at church. Hopefully I will get a few pictures to share with you next week!
