The Great Commission

Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

A lot of things have been happening since I last updated the blog. I had a great meeting with Foothills church who went to Belarus on a trip recently. The trip went very well and many were reached with the gospel for Christ. We have been back at the Falls. It is great working with some of the "old" kids again. We just had a Mom's night out with manicures for all.

Duluth After School

Leah and I were in Duluth helping the children with homework yesterday and today. The children are doing testing this week. Some don't have much homework because the teachers told them to "relax" for testing. Tomorrow I go with Pastor Andrew and Inna to Foothills Baptist Church to help prepare them for their mission trip to Belarus next week. They have 7 people from their church going to Belarus.

Block Party in Chamblee

I had a great time at a Block Party in Chamblee
today hosted by Peachtree Corners Baptist. I got
to make lots of balloon dogs, hats, and swords.
The weather was perfect! The children had a
wonderful time. Most importantly they heard about
Jesus who died, was, buried, and rose again so that
they might go to heaven.

Duluth and Chamblee

We have had a busy week. We started out the week
with 2 families in Duluth on Monday. I always love it
when Sarah and Leah go with me! I love the families
that we work with. They are like family to us!
Mark and I had a great meeting with Tim Cummins,
my NAMB supervisor on Tuesday. We were able to talk about
where God is taking us in ministry and set some
goals for the Fall. I spent the rest of the week
helping in after school at the apt in Chamblee.One
of the girls made and gave me a beautiful heart. We
will be helping with a big Block Party outreach on

Homeschooling in Siberia

Today I met with a sweet Mom and her son.
She was born in Moldova and raised in Russia.
At the age of 17 she accepted Christ as her
Savior. Her family is moving this summer to
Siberia to be missionaries. They are not going
with an agency but stepping out on faith and
going to serve the Lord in Yekaterinburg in
Siberia. This is the town that was made famous
as the last place where Czar Nicholas II and his
family lived and were murdered. She is planning
on homeschooling when they move. I was able to
have a meeting with her to introduce
homeschooling and how we do it to her.

FBC Norcross

Harmony, the trio that Deborah is in, sang
a mini concert at First Baptist Norcross this
past Sunday evening. They did a great job!
They had quite a turn out of fans to hear them
sing including Matthew, the FBA youth director and
associate choir director. We all ate at Jasons Deli
after the concert. The Acnhormen, a southern gospel
quartet, also performed. They are so good! They
were very encouraging to the trio! I videotaped 3
of the songs but Deborah doesn't want me to include
them so I am posting only pictures.

ESL In Evening

On Tuesday evenings I have been teaching ESL
at Azalea Place in Chamblee. All of our students
have been from Guatemala. The last 2 week however
we have not had any students come to class because
now with the time change the men especially are
out working later. It is great that they have work but
disappointing to Penny the other teacher and myself.
Last night Penny had brought curtains that she made
for the front window of the mission. She had bought
a tension rod at Walmart. Well the 2 of us could not
get the rod to work. Finally we ask one of the boys
if his Dad might have a screwdriver we could us. A
few minutes later the Dad came down to the mission
to help us. Success! I guess it takes a man!
Leah and I had fun reading with some of the little

Visiting in Homes

One of the things that I do in missions is visit
in homes each week. Usually I go to teach English.
One of my sweet Mom's had surgery recently and is
still recovering so we aren't doing "classes" right
now. We have been visitng to cheer her up!

Singing at ESL

Great ESL class last night. I enjoyed
sharing cookies with the children at
the end of class. Deborah and I really
enjoyed teaching the adults the simple
Christian song - Alleluia, Praise ye the Lord.
We sang it several times and of course had
them stand up and sit down as they sang.

ESL at Azalea Place

We had a great class ESL class at Azalea Place in
Chamblee tonight. Our intermediate class only had 3
students but Penny's beginning class had about 7 students.
Leah came and helped me. Tonight we studied about going
to the Doctor and sickness. I had my grab back of
medical stuff - medicine, thermometer, stethoscope,
etc. We also read the story of Jesus calming the storm.
Good evening!
