Just wanted to write a quick update for you all! This past week went fairly well. In addition to the regular battery of visitations, counseling sessions, and reading/writing projects, I was privileged to perform a funeral for Ronald Waight, an elderly man of our congregation, much of whose family lives in the United States and was able to come down for the service. I was thrilled to preach on Sunday for both of our congregations, and this week looks as though it's shaping up to be a good one as well.
Please keep a few things in your prayers this week. First, please pray for Juan and María Marentes as they get ready to come back to Belize on Friday (we're ecstatic, as you can imagine!). Second, please pray as I consider whether to get a dog for the yard or not. Third, please pray for our youth group meeting on Saturday: I think it's going to be an important one. And of course, as always, please pray that Christ's love, grace, peace, and patience would reign in our hearts and between one another as we serve him together side by side.
And, in case I don't get a chance to say it to you on Thursday, Happy Feast of our Lord's Ascension! Have a wonderful week!
