This morning we went to a different church, a nigerian one, with our group, EMI. The service started at 7:45am.... How about that for a morning service??!! All of us women, including my two girls, wore head wraps, as is customary here in Nigeria. I am not sure why nigerian women can wear beautiful head wraps and look very stylish and then when I put one on, I have just gained 15 pounds.... Who knows, maybe I have gained 15 pounds... I don't have a scale. Anyway, here is proof of our nigerian morning....
The church was great, lasting about 2 hours.
The sermon was on Luke 22 when Jesus prays in the Garden the night when Judas betrays him. It was such a great reminder of prayer and praying before temptation happens or praying while your marriage is still good or praying before your kids are wayward.... He reflected on his own life when it was easier to commit to praying when the crisis was at hand, not beforehand. It encouraged John and I to have a prayer time tonight full of seeking Him before the temptation was at hand.
We have four more days with this team and it has just helped John and I prepare for the summer groups when Jason and Emilee are not with us. We are reminded to pray before the summer as it can appear daunting... Everyone in Mexico who is reading this, know we miss you and your giftings.... But, God is good, and prayer grows us.
I am feeling super tired waiting for it to rain, I am going to bed.
