Fellowship of Believers

What an exciting day yesterday was.. At 10am, I had a friend over to cut my hair and she just happened to one of her former college roomates with her. I had quiet an encouraging time getting to know her friend J*** more. J*** has been on "holiday" for 4 weeks. She has traveled from country in Africa to Scotland to Georgia to Vermont. Today she is off to Montreal then back to Africa. You probably are wondering why.. well apparently the agency (which I can't remember the name of) requires a holiday especially when living in hostile area like ***,Africa. She is an engineer (mechanical) but is currently drilling wells for fresh water so now she is a Water Engineer. This was facinating to me. Pray for her. Pray for the continent of Africa and for the countries that are hostile to the Gospel of our Lord.


Then later that evening, Steve had a meeting for all the people that are going on the short term mission trip (in April) to Gulfport, MS to do Katrina relief work. Two men who have been helping Steve organize the trip were coming up to do some training for the relief work. Both of them are both missionaries with North Carolina Baptist Men and North American Mission Board. I had the priveledge of serving and hosting them for dinner. It was a real treat to hear their testimonies of coming to faith and to hear of their families, some of which are not walking with the Lord. Thanks to my sister in-law Carey.. for the great recipe: Pillsbury Chicken Pot Pie. It was a huge success. All the men had seconds. :-)
I can't help a but reflect on much of a treat it was to hear of brothers and sisters walking in the truth.. yielding their life, desires and comforts for the sake of the Glorious Gospel.

I had difficulty determining what a "y'all uh hayat" was at first. It was the battle of the accents up there, from Rhode Island's, "You'se are goings to be blessed" to "y'alluh hayat"

Yes, the gospel is glorious! The Lord is awesome! Lots to pray about and many brethren to pray for...
Have a blessed day!
