I finished reading The Hospitality Commands by Alexander Strauch. The New Testament says a lot about hospitality – more than we might think. We all know we should be hospitable, but we have a hard time actually doing it. May it not be so.
I read By Grace Alone: How the Grace of God Amazes Me by Sinclair Ferguson. Don’t get bored by God’s grace! It’s far too great a truth to just yawn about and say, “I’ve heard that so many times before.”
We had a visit from the Gideon’s at Cross Creek Bible Church. I love their ministry and want to keep it front of us so we don’t forget about them. We try to have them visit at least once per year.
We said goodbye to Kosmo, our cat of 11 years. She was attacked by a pit bull (which I witnessed almost all of) and died of her injuries about 90 minutes later. Hard. She was good companion.
We attended our first pi party on the 14th (3-14-15) and had a great time!
I read All Things For Good by Thomas Watson. A wonderful reminder of the truth of Romans 8:28 – God causes all things to work together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
I received my Vietnam visa! I’ll be going there in May with Harmony Outreach to train pastors at an underground seminary. I’ll be teaching the book of Romans to about 50 native pastors.
We celebrated my Dad’s 75th birthday with family and had a fantastic time!
We had a visit from Duane and Jodi Decker of China Outreach Ministry at Cross Creek Bible Church. It was a chance to update some of us and introduce their ministry to others.
I heard Professor and Pastor Dan Doriani speak at the Spurgeon Fellowship at Western Seminary. I really enjoyed it. Dan is a careful scholar and expositor of Scripture. If you get the chance to read one of his books or hear him preach or teach, take it.
I read Black List by Brad Thor. This was the first Thor book I’ve ever read, and I liked it. It’s a fiction thriller, but seems the scenario is very realistic.
God graciously provided all of the funds necessary for my trip to Vietnam in May. Praise Him for His abundant provision!
