On one Sunday morning I (Rena) spoke to this class of children about what a missionary is and does. They were very attentive, especially the little girl that is 2nd from the left in this picture. Perhaps there is a future missionary in this group!
Each Sunday School class decorated their rooms with a mission theme from different countries. Alot of work was put into these!
The missionary conference at the seminary was mentioned in a previous post in which David Taylor and Luiz Miguel were the speakers. This enhanced our missions month at church because several were able to attend some of that.
The final event of these weeks of the mission theme was the "international dinner" we had after the evening service last Sunday. The emphasis was on Italian and African food. The menu was spaghetti, chili beans, pizza, rice, and polenta...
...and then cakes with peanuts in them for dessert. Four or five ladies each made a different recipe so we had fun trying them all out!
THE DESIRE TO SHARE THE GOSPEL IS NOW STRONGER IN THE HEARTS OF MANY. WE WOULD LIKE FOR THOSE AROUND US TO "TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD"!
