I had a great weekend. Saturday I saw some students that went to Kazakhstan last summer. Both are planning to return next summer and both will probably help lead teams. One of them has already recruited 2 people to go with him.
I also spent part of Saturday finishing up my sermon that I was to preach on Sunday. On Sunday I preached at Grace church, my home church for the last 3 years. They have gone to two services so it was the first time for me to preach back to back sermons.
After completing the 4 1/2 hours of two services, I don’t know how preachers do it. I was so wiped out after the services that I came home and rested. How do preachers that have multiple (3-5) services on a weekend do it?
Then I spent the evening with Pasha’s family. Pasha and his sister both got married over the summer and they all live with their parents. Three families under one roof. I don’t know how they do it, but they seem content. I had a great time with them.
Of course, the ladies are all concerned that I haven’t gotten married and were going over prospects with me from our church. I think we finally concluded that most of the women are too young for me!! 🙂
