I have yet, after 18 months, to cease amazement at the pace of life that exists in this village. Since our last post the list of events that has taken place would make for quite a few posts: Prom, Graduation, students leaving for home, family visiting, birthday parties, good buy potlucks, and on and on the list could go. And as usual the pace has not slowed just changed. Now is the time that we have 23 hours of daylight so outside projects are if full swing.
This past weekend we held a Bi-Annual SEND North Interior Team Retreat (or at least that's what I'll call it.) We took three boats down river for a picnic and had a great time of fellowship. Then on Saturday we met for planning and vision casting for the following six months. In attendance were the three SEND families that live in Galena, the SEND couple that pastor the church in Husila, and the two SEND team leader families (myself and my brother).
We (Brad Fox and Myself) will be preaching through the book of James over the summer. I am attempting to record the sermons and post them on this blog with a listener's guide. If you are so inclined, please feel free to listen to the sermon and look at the guide. This is a trial run for us as we are seeking ways to use these resources to connect with other villages that do not currently have churches planted in them, and also as a way to stay connected with students who return home from Galena. Any feedback from this would be greatly appreciated, or any ideas and resources that you have to put towards this project would be welcomed as well.
More posts to follow soon.
