Well I just got home a few minutes ago from preaching at the University Baptist Church in Atlanta where Gary Ledford is pastor. I really enjoyed it and am grateful to God that I can call Pastor Ledford my friend. I preached in both Spanish and English because Pastor Ledford had the Spanish church come into the service. The service tonight was part of their mission’s conference. I was glad to get a chance to preach on missions so directly tonight.
Before the service we had a great time of fellowship around the restaurant table. Then we got a tour of the area. I pray that God will continue to bless University Baptist Church and its ministry.
I preached on the Remainers out of Ezra 1. It is stressful and tiring to preach and translate your own message but it is a lot of fun.
I want to thank the most wonderful people in the world. We had about 25 people from Vision go to the service tonight. The Vision team sang and did a wonderful job. Gray asked me why they did so much better away from home and they did. It was extremely good. I need to thank Kristen Pearson, Kathy Fies, Mariangela Simeon, and Philip Bassham.
Philip was just off the charts and several talked to me about his song about Job. It was great.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciated each of our people in their kindness of going with us. God has richly blessed us allowing Betty and me to work in such a wonderful church with such wonderful people.
