I was pleased to be able to deliver a suitcase full of shoes and a wad of money to Pastor Predestin at My Father's House orphanage. My teaching colleague (who also came bearing gifts) and I enjoyed being swarmed by huggers. These kiddos get great care, but I was stirred emotionally as I thought of that huge daddy hug vacuum (you may take that adjective to describe the daddy and the vacuum).
I am spoiled again this year by our very nice guest house/hotel. Generators do not make the frequent city power outages unnoticeable, but we are spoiled by hot water, occasional air-conditioning and occasional wireless Internet.
Tomorrow starts the roller coaster with students arriving at 7 a.m. I am scheduled to teach through the book of Hebrews in about 16 hours through four days and then to teach a second level of Biblical Counseling in the same amount of time. I hope to give daily updates, and would be pleased if you take the time to read them and pray for me and our students.
