We were looking forward to worship this morning as Shirley and I sat at breakfast. And then the power went out. Our rooms are on the 12th floor of this hotel and even if we attempted the climb we would not have been able to get in because of the electronic keying — so we sat in the lobby for the 2 hours until power was restored. I’ d like to say we held our own worship service, but we didn’t.
The ministry event today was a parenting meeting with 10 young women – either already mothers or soon to be. I presented 4 of the Thrive Life Skills lessons in a couple hours. Only a few are married to Christian men – some have made that choice deliberately, just to be married. The challenges of cultural expectations, economic hardship and standing strong for Christ and biblical values are huge. They received the presentation gratefully and would like to continue to use the material as a small group study. Praise God!
Thanks for your prayers.
