Long time - no post / Revival / Bible Institute

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted on this blog. The summer has been unexpectedly busy.

I know our church folks know, but others may not know that several weeks ago our church basement sustained a heavy blow with a flood. The drain lines backed up during some heavy rains and we had 3 to 4 inches of water throughout the whole basement of the church building. It has been a mess ever since. We've been make-shifting Sunday School classes. My wife's class has been meeting in the parsonage living room. The 5th and 6th grade class has been meeting on our front porch and the Helper class (2 yrs.-K) has been using the nursery. Needless to say, this has been taking up much time and work, and has generally been a major headache. The workers are supposed to begin this week restoring the basement.

Our Revival starts Tuesday, August 12th and runs through Friday, August 15th. My pastor, Bro. Bob Lamb, will be preaching each night. The services begin at 7:00 p.m. I'm really looking forward to seeing Bro. Lamb. Though he is retired from pastoring, he's still my pastor and my favorite preacher! Pray with us that the Lord would send REVIVAL - I need it!

Classes will soon begin in our Bible Institute this Fall. I'm excited because we will have five students this semester. For information about our Institute, visit the FRMBI web page.
