Being grateful

What a blessing Sunday services were to each that attended. We started individual Scripture memory this week, and as always the children showed up the adults. Each of the children had a verse ready to quote. Our boys must quote in English and Czech.

The question was asked "What are you grateful for?" What a blessing it was to hear from the hearts of those who spoke during the opening of our church service.

Singing songs unto the Lord is just what we did yesterday as little Maty, age 2, sang with all of his heart and voice. Tears come to my eyes when I think about that precious soul and the souls of some many here that we are trying to reach with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

It was good to see Jan in the services today. He had surgery this week and we were prepared to have him take part in the services via web cam and skype. Pray for him as he continues to heal.
He will be off from work all week.

Czech services

It is a joy to be here in the Czech services. Our children's Sunday school class will be finishing the lessons in the Old Testimony in two weeks. We will continue our studies in the New Testiment. We have booklets for the children to color and to review at home.

Parenting classes are going well. We are about half way finished. It seems that we never go as fast as we schedule, but that is not a problem if it helps those to learn the material and apply it to their lives.

Our autumn literature campaign will come to an end in November. We will be handing out our most recent written tract about St. Mikuláš Day. It is based on a true story of a young girl fears of not being ready for that day. Do you fear the day of the Lord's return or are you ready? That day is far more important then Mikuláš day.

Czech services

Another wonderful day to serve the Lord. We had another boy in children's church this Sunday. He name is Mark. He came with his Grandmother, Alena. Please pray for those who are not coming faithfully - Lenka, Jacob, and Milada.

Sunday's service

Sunday's service was a blessing to all. The church members quoted Psalms 1 as a group (in Czech, of course). We need to remember many in prayer: Milada for salvation, friends facing family relationship problems, Mazgut's for a larger house and the health of many around us. We also have a praise - Mireck had off work this Sunday. It was good to see him in services.

The Christmas tracts - actually a St. Mikuláš tracts - are printed and ready to be distributed in November. Please pray now for the families who will be receiving these tracts in their mailboxes.

Apple dumplings with vanilia ice cream and questions about healings, tongues and end times became part of our fellowshp time this week. These questions are being asked after a large healing service was held here in Brno two weeks ago. So many confused people in need of Christ.

A wonderful Sunday

This Sunday was a blessing to our family. We had 13 in services (9 Czechs and our family). Jan was able to give a testimony about memorizing scripture, how it has blessed his heart and giving him a new view of the scriptures.

As a church family we are memorizing Psalm 1. This week we quoted up to verse five, next Sunday everyone will be quoting the whole chapter. Praise God for His word that changes hearts.

Continue to pray for those that need to be saved and those who need to surrender to baptism. Also the Lord had blessed us with several new contacts this week and last week. Pray that the Word of God would touch their hearts.
