Sunday on the Coast
This morning Maggy and I drove over to Port City Church of Christ in Mobile, Alabama. We enjoyed a good Bible class taught by one of the elders, Jerre Bryant. Steve May led singing along with the praise team and did a great job. Kenny Harris kept the power point stuff on track and did a super job with that. Chris Lockhart said some really nice things about me to the church. Preacher Bruce Stewart baptized a young man into Christ. And then the church's generosity overflowed when they took up an offering for my family. It was a very sweet experience and I apprecaite the Port City church so much. While there are many Mobile area churches doing relief work along the coast, and a few have offered some help to Pascagoula from time to time, Port City has been there for us above all. For the first few months of our trial, Chris Lockhart called me every day. He has also made weekly trips over, as well as Gene and Robin Barrett, and others. After worship, Kenny, Chris, Susan, Hayden, Bruce, Maggy, and me went to the Oyster House on the bayway to enjoy a great lunch together. It really was superb. And thanks to Bruce for picking up our ticket. Tonight we had a youth devotional at the church. It's been hard for our teens to get momentum back and start meeting regularly. We had a few for the devotional, after which most of them went home. JR and Lanni and I went to Waffle House for a supper together, though, and enjoyed that. Tomorrow I plan to pick up our van from the shop (hopefully they will have it fixed this time!), do some hospital visitation, then head to the church building to do whatever I can to assist people there. That was our day on the Coast! Pray for my friend Danny. His uncle passed away today and he flew to Texas to do the funeral. Let's all have a great week!
