Despite the fact that it is the 20th of February, I am the first to post an update this month. A lot has happened since the last time I posted. My father and Elizabeth are back safely from Indianapolis. I have heard many good things about the Father’s Conference and believe that it was a worth-while trip.
We have had a couple of families over recently for meals and fellowship:
As well as our normal bi-weekly Thursday evening Bible study meetings:
We also had a men’s meeting early this month. We are planning on hosting the Advanced Seminar in March.
The construction has also been progressing. We have finished the gyp-rock in the big room:
Completed the plastering:
A couple of base coats of paint were applied:
And the final off-white colour is done, too!
We’ve had another birthday:
Stephen likes broccoli, and even asked for it on (and in) his cake! I figure I had better post a picture or two, or you won’t believe it:
We have some innovative and excellent cooks who are able to invent great tasting recipes with unusual ingredients!
I had better finish this post, and I thought these verses from Romans 13 might be appropriate based on the title I used:
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
