Ynysybwl – On The Ground

Wales Team 2013After about 18 hours of traveling by planes, trains, and automobiles and an afternoon of exploring our surroundings and catching up with previous acquaintances, we were finally able to get a much needed good night’s sleep last night.

We spent most of the day taking it easy and recuperating. We went around town and handed out a few flyers and made sure we were prepared for the week’s bible club and coffee shop events, along with renewing a few old acquaintances. For the most part our time today has been spent in fellowship with each other and going over some logistics for our time here with Bill Painter.

Our devotion for this morning was from Luke 22:26-27:

But not so with you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves. For who is the greater, one who reclines at table or one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at table? But I am among you as the one who serves.

…and I think exemplifies what we are trying to do over here, and that is to serve the people of Ynysybwl and show them the love of Christ through not just word, but action. That will be our goal for the week. We all appreciate your continued prayers.
