It's not everyday you get to preach the Easter Sunday message at a church. I was given the opportunity to do so this year here in our congregation. They let me know on Saturday. It's such an amazing story. We looked at how the Ark of the Covenant crossing the Jordan River in Joshua 3 is an image of Christ being ahead of us in death, and taking the stinger out of death for us. We cross without getting 'our feet wet'. The Bible is such an amazing book. The place where they crossed is the same place where Jesus was baptized all those years later. Baptism itself is a picture of death and new life. Amazing stuff that God put in that book!
On Saturday some kind missionaries here in Haiti with Jason Stoltzfus put a cement pad for my shed. Today, Monday, they built the whole thing. This is the first building I've ever really had. It's about 9' by 11'. It's a special feeling having your own space. It is on rented land, and, well, I haven't paid for it yet, but.... It's a big step #1 either way. We're on schedule to begin construction of the cement room this month (see the 'buildings' page).
I've had time to begin preparing some things for the future. I've started a series of ten 'assembly programs' that I'll offer to neighboring schools next year. I'll touch practical lessons in math, science and language plus Bible and moral lessons all in one hour of fun video and song. I've also started working on a Vacation Bible School where I'll teach on the Tabernacle in Exodus. And a series of 5-minute radio programs to be aired on a local Christian station is also in the pipeline. Lots to do. Help me pray
