This afternoon we didn’t have Berea Club, but we did have Club Juvenil. We took our youth group to McDonalds and they loved it. They each got a sundae and a small fry. We praise the Lord that 7 came. Two of our regulars couldn’t come but it was good to have the 7. We took some group pictures that I will have to upload and post later.
Yesterday we found out that the President of the Salon has ordered the Second Family Court Judge to make the decision about giving us permission. Our lawyer is going tomorrow to talk to him and see if he will make a decision as soon as possible
The Lord blessed us with 17 today at kids club. We reviewed the lessons that we’ve done over the last six weeks and we had 9 say the memory verse! It was a good day and we didn’t get wet!
Who would have thought that it would take 2 months for a judge to say “Yes” or “No”? I wouldn’t have, but unfortunately it’s been almost 2 months and we still have no decision. Things are coming down to the wire. The Lord has definitely shown me how much patience I need to wait on Him. I thought that I was a man with a lot of patience (and maybe I am with people), but I found out something about myself. With God, I do not want to be patient; I do not want to wait. I want an answer as soon as I pray, and I want a reply within minutes or days of my request. I do not want to wait on God, and He is definitely teaching me to wait on His timing.
The Lord blessed us with a great kids club this afternoon. We had 24 children and 1 was a first time visitor! Our lesson was on the Israelites crossing the Red Sea. The kids seemed to have a good time with the lesson. We had 8 say the 10 plagues. Only 3 or 4 actually said them in order, but the rest did good saying them. We also had about 10 say the memory verse! God is good!
