Sunday Blessings

A brother from Punjab delivered the morning message.I like the Punjabi accent, its like strong black coffee and very sincere.
On Saturday evening a group of Bible College students came over for a cook out at the parsonage. They made a wood fire in the backyard and cooked chicken curry and pulao under the direction of the Pastor 's wife.Everybody enjoyed.
Aunt Sybil was not well that evening and as our maid was on festival holiday, Mama stayed home with her.
On Sunday afternoon, there was the monthly prayer meeting in church. About 25 people from various churches gathered together to pray for our city and each other. It was a great time of worship and fellowship.Dr John Thomas organizes it. He is a physician ,now into full time Christian ministry, an ex-Catholic.
Several people visited us afterwards. A longtime friend, (RJ) who was the financial director of a Christian College , shared that his 17 year old son does not listen to him. When he was his age he had accepted Christ and was involved in a youth group (he was our leader).His son is far from God.
RJ admitted that he has been very busy at work and not given enough time to his son, just supplied his needs. (We know they had marriage problems too). He wants to make amends, he has moved from his financial job and now is the director of a branch of the college and teaches economics. His son 's name is Abner, you can say a prayer for him too.He is a grade 11 student.
The electricity has gone off, I 'll continue later on as my computer will go off.

5 Fertilize my soul:
