F & V are Here!

Everybody is fine. We are not near where the earthquake happened. Floyd and Virginia got in at 3:30 yesterday. All are healthy and well. Cliff is off with RM and doing fine. We met with a local P who is hosting our Saturday meeting in his church. The ladies choose their outfits. Today, we're planning and organizing. Weather is perfect!

My friends from FL arrived on time with all of their luggage on Friday night, PTL! Saturday morning, we headed for Agra to see the Taj Mahal. After 2 hours on the road we had brake trouble and were delayed on the road for three hours. The tour company sent another vehicle, and a different driver. We had grown fond of "Lovely." Virginia started getting sick to her stomach about 9 and by the time the replacement vehicle came we made the decision to send her back to the hospital to get some fluids. You just don't take chances with dehydration. She insisted we go on. Floyd stayed with her. She's doing fine now and has been given the medical clearance to travel up here, just a day behind us. We had a great but short trip to the Taj. It was a l-o-n-g day, taking 8 hours to get there and 4 1/2 to get back. The ladies are in my home now, and Virginia and Floyd should arrive by 5:00 pm by private vehicle. Cliff is ff with RM taking a tour of our state. Our weather has been perfect! It's a sunny Monday morning and the ladies are off to shop for suits and stuff. This is an easy day to adjust to the altitude. They crashed pretty early last night and all slept well. Pictures to come. Gotta get going! Thanks for lifting us up!!!!!

Moms and Friends Learn from a Bad Girl

 The ladies wanted to learn how to make pizza dough.

 We also made bread sticks from the same dough. Each lady chose their own fillings.
 I prepared the sauce ahead of time. We made a cheese pizza!
 Finished bread sticks.
 Singing to the Lord!
We learned from the adulterous woman today. Even the bad girls have much to teach us. The Pharisees were not after social justice when they brought the woman before Jesus, or they would have brought the man as well. It takes two after all. No, they were trying to trap Jesus. They told him she had been caught in the act of adultery and should be condemned to death, what did He say? He just drew in the sand. They kept after Him for an answer. If He said she she be stoned to death, He would be breaking the Roman law because Jews could not put to death other Jews. If He said she should not be stoned to death, He would be breaking Mosaic law. Finally, Jesus stood and said for the one among them that was without sin to cast the first stone. One by one the men turned and left until only the woman was standing before Jesus. With no one left to condemn her, Jesus told her neither did He condemn her. He told her to go and sin no more. He didn't ignore the fact that she had sinned, He forgave her and called for her repentance -to turn from her sin and turn to Him. Jesus show us once again how He values women as much as men. He is fair and just. He separates the sin from the sinner. He has compassion. He is wise. He knew what those guys were up to!

Big Girls Bible Club Learn From the Widow

Showing the finished product!
The girls heard the story of the widow whose only son had died. Jesus showed compassion on her. He told her not to weep. Then, He spoke to her son and told him to get up. Jesus restored her son to her so that she would have provision and a protector. The people knew that a prophet was among them. God had visited his people. Yes, God knows our needs before we tell Him. Jesus has compassion for His people. Jesus has power over death.
