Every Sunday evening we have our church outdoor meeting.
It is amazing to see people coming in the oppressive and humid heat.
People are desirous to hear the Gospel message and take
part in worshipping the King of Glory.
Nowadays because of the rains we are having
indoor meetings which are well attended too.
Yesterday , August 1st
we had our first mid-week Bible study.
I was only expecting 10 or 12 people to show up, but
more than 20 came, some from
far off places , taking inconvenient public transport,
travelling on rough, rain damaged roads and braving
Shows how much they covet fellowship
and teaching of the Word. The faith and enthusiasm of new believers
is a lesson to us.

I read this instructive story which I want
to share here.
There's a story about a ceramics teacher who divided his class into two groups. One group would be graded on the quantity of their work. They were to make as many pots as possible. The other group would be graded on the quality of their work. They were to make as perfect a pot as possible. When the day came to grade the students, the professor was amazed to discover that the group being graded for quantity also had the best quality. The group churning out the most vessels made the finest pieces. The reason? They were learning from their mistakes, so their work was constantly improving. The "quality" group spent all their time working on a single pot, but without the benefit of failures, mistakes, or experience.
Don't be afraid to fail. Proverbs 24:16 (NLT) says, "The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again." If you've made a mistake or encountered a failure, don't stay down. Failure is often the back door to success.
Success is simple. Do what's right, the right way, at the right time.
