On Sunday we went to Peace Christian Church in the morning. This was a warm, welcoming church that meets in a school building. I was completely absorbed by the decorations and the displays around the room. Reverend Holly’s sermon was very thought provoking. It was about Jesus walking on the water in the middle of chaos. It reminded me of her sermon two years ago when she spoke about meeting on the other side. After worship time communion was taken – it was refreshing and restoring.
After the service many people stayed to listen to my presentation about Grace School. With sorrow about my poor English I answered questions about the school and Mali. They were amazed to hear about this successful Christian school in a Muslim country. I even sang a line of Amazing Grace in Dogon at one point. We shared experiences and I greatly enjoyed the generous and nice people this church contains.
In the evening the scenario repeated – this time at the downtown Peace church. Again many people stayed after to hear about the school. I met a lot of people today and made many new friends. All were very supportive of the school and of me. Dinner was served on the Pomeroy’s patio closing the day’s events with deep satisfaction.
God bless you for your continued prayers!
