Week 3 of Preaching Training Program

This past week was a busy but productive week. I put in about 50 hours. I am thrilled with the time that I have to fully focus on the work of an evangelist.  I began a new study with two of our high school students on miracles. One of them had a conversation with a friend about miracles and wanted to learn more on the topic. It’s great to see our young people having religious discussions with their peers. Along with this study I am conducting another study with one of our young men in the book of Acts.

Wednesday I led another college class study at the building. We are finishing the book of Genesis and beginning this Sunday we will be diving into the book of Acts. I will be teaching this semester.  The teachers at Dowlen Road have such tremendous support from the other members in preparing for class. The only thing the teacher has to be concerned with is teaching. There are other eager brothers and sisters who put together all the class materials (binders, workbooks, etc) and prep the room with decorations.

I was able to visit a few members in the hospital with David during the week. I finished my sermon prep and preached in West Orange this past Sunday. We had a great time in the Lord. Between the individual Bible studies, college devotions, and couples devotions, the week went by extremely fast. We ended the week on a high note on Sunday when we were welcomed by the congregation with a big potluck lunch. There are some awesome cooks here!  We really appreciate the warm welcome the church has given us during this transition period.
