As I was in Michael's - doesn't everyone go to Michael's on dates? - Wes sat in the car and made a couple of phone calls on our "American" phone (prepaid minutes we keep for use when we're in the US). One of the calls was to our son Sam. Please excuse my mama pride as I tell you this news! Samuel determined when he went to college to get involved in anything and everything he could. This year he's in college choir, minoring in speech and drama, and is on the drama team, which is performing a play commemorating the life of Dr. Tom Malone this semester. Samuel auditioned for the play . . . and he got the lead - he's playing Dr. Malone! I think the boy is slightly crazy for attempting so much in one semester - he's carrying 19 credits this semester and working part time in addition to choir and drama - but at the same time I'm very proud of him for working so hard.
We had a full house - literally - for Bible study last night! It was exciting to have every chair that we own filled, and people sticking around for fellowship afterward too. We are beginning to feel a sense of family among our people, not just a group of people getting together for church. That's what happens when people pray and work together for the Lord! Wes and I are just praising the Lord for how He is working among our people and bringing new people across our paths. Please continue praying for people to be saved.
Speaking of churches growing, my sister Robyn and her husband, Clark, missionaries in Mexico, are seeing people saved almost every week, and the work is just overflowing for them. God is blessing their hard work! When I have more time, I'll share a bit of their updates with you.
My husband is hinting around that he's about ready for bed, so I'll get off of here and go to bed too. Have a great weekend!
