GOD AT WORK...

A few snapshots of our LifeGroup meeting last night and three baptisms.

The first baptism was of Faith - From Tanzania, the next two were a mother (Camelia) and daughter (Scarlette) - from Romania (I posted a picture of Joe earlier - husband and father). The young man helping in Matt (Youth Pastor from the Philippines - Now American - We hired him right out of his graduation from Southern).

Jon, thanks for sharing a bit of Pentecost in an internationally flavored church where all are welcome.

Looks like a great potluck. Looking at the table of our first church potluck in Pennsylvania, it was obvious we were no longer in the south because there was no fried chicken, but there were six different kinds of pasta. So what's on the table in those pics?

On the table are sides for the hotdogs I am grilling. Chips... Slaw... Potato Salad... As few middle Eastern salads... Cheese... No chili (could only find spicy hot and I've grown out of that stuff)

The dogs were Oscar Myer (can be found in a few shops that have a non-muslim area for pork products)... Bratsworth,,, chicken links from Lebanon.

I supplied the common to us meats. Others brought their favorite link.

Sodas... Punch... Water.

This was the most American cookout I've had since we moved here. I planned it and made the menu. my end of it cost me AED 600+ (roughly 155.00 USD). But the Brats were the best I've had in years.

We went inside for our Bible Study as it was hovering around 100 outside.

On another note... I will be preaching at a Telugu church Friday night in Diera. Hopefully I will get some photos to share. These services last many hours... They love loud and long music and preaching. I've been given 1 hour for my message and can take longer if needed since I have a translator. It's glorious crazy. I'm the keynote speaker. One of three speakers total. I come in just prior to my time and leave shortly after. I do need to be ready for our church on Saturday morning.
