This morning was an experience we'll not forget. A 3 hour church service went in a blink. We were warmly welcomed by the whole congregation with singing and dancing and prayers which involved a whole lot of "whoopin' and a hollerin'. Reuben, Rachel, Michael and Brian worked with the Sunday School while John, Karen and myself held the fort in the service.
Peninah preached, boy can she preach, on 1Cor 12. ( different parts of the body and all that stuff (very appropriate for the relationship we're embarking on).
Towards the end a new born baby boy was presented to the church and the parents asked for prayers of thanksgiving for the safe arrival of the child. John, Karen and myself were invited as elders to lay hands on the child and pray. An indication of the trust now growing in this relationship.
At the end of the service Sunday school hadn't finished so Dr Bunini told the congregation they were going to teach us to dance until the kids arrived.
3 Presbyterian Elders dancing......mmmmmm!
Lunch was had in the manse followed by a chance to relax in the afternoon.
Tomorrow comes early and we've a busy week ahead of us.
Coveting the prayers of BPC.
With much love and blessings,
Graham Simpson (dancing "ex elder")
