Friday again already! Sounds like a good day to eat fried foods - except that I eat fried foods with regularity anyway.
We are looking forward to a visit from some long time friends - Glenn & Judy Richards - on Saturday and on Sunday we will be blessed by the ministry of Mark and Cathy Fehrman.
Glenn Richard was pastor at West Endicott Baptist Church in New York when I was in seminary back in the 1980's. They took me on as an intern for the summer of 1982 and mentored us in many ways. It was a blessing that God built into those seminary years. In some ways it rescued us from burning out in seminary after that first very difficult year.
Mark and Cathy Fehrman are missionaries with EBM's ministry - Tri-M. Tri-M offers theological education for indiginous pastors and missionaries in countries around the world. It is a great program, and we are looking forward to hearing about their year abroad.
So it should be a great weekend! I don't get to preach, but I will still be blessed.
