Good morning! Today's Big Picture Question is, "How did Jesus change Saul's life?" Jesus saved Saul from his sins. As a family, read Acts 8:1-3 and Acts 9:1-31. How did Saul's life change after his encounter with God? How could he have reacted differently? When we encounter God, we will never be the same! How has God changed you? How was your life different before and after knowing Jesus? Pray together as a family, asking God to let His light shine through you this week.
Good morning! Today's Big Picture Question is, "Why was Stephen not afraid to die?" Stephen saw Jesus waiting for him in heaven. While we all may not be killed for our faith, we will all face difficult times in following Jesus. As a family, talk about some times when it might be hard to follow or stand up for Jesus. Following Christ means that we don't have to be scared of persecution, rejection, or even death. For Christians, death and hard times don't have to be scary because we have hope and confidence knowing that we will spend eternity with God in heaven. Pray together as a family, asking God to give you the courage to follow Him no matter what....
English Camps are finished. We had 90 students enrolled, with very few absentees during the week. Pictured is Larry Heard and his class of 13-15 yr olds. Great week with many opportunities to share the plan of salvation. Great mission trip.
Our youngest class has 44 students ages 6-10. Much too large for any successful teaching. We divided the class and Ann is now teaching the 9-10 year olds and Larry is teaching the 13-14 yr olds. We both have great interpreters who not only interpret for us but who are functioning as teaching associates. ...
Here's the three teams for the three schools administered by Szekesfeverhar Baptist Church at the morning worship service after Larry preached. The 18 team members are from FBC Amarillo, Paramount Amarillo, Perryton, Lubbock, McKinney, Hooker, OK as well as 2 teams from Germany/Austria teaching German at two of the schools.
Good morning! Today's Big Picture Question is, "Who can do God's work?" God gives every believer gifts and skills for doing His work. How can you use your talents and abilities to serve God? Talk as a family about each person's gifts and strengths, and brainstorm ways he/she can use those to share Christ with others. In our latest email ("Have You Talked To Your Kids About...Missions"), we talk about specific ways your and your family can learn to use what God has given you to serve Him. Look through this email together as a family, and find one new way you can share the good news of Christ this summer!Check out the email here:http://www.fbc-amarillo.org/ministries-children-have-you-talked-to-your-kids-about-
Here are 9 (including one from OK) getting ready to head for our second week. It's very sweet for Larry and I to be wrapped in arms of love from our Hungarian brothers and sisters upon returning to Szekesvehervar for the third time. What a blesssing. Pray for us as we begin our second week of camps. Pray for our evangelistic moments! Ruthie is joining us here this week while Sue holds down the fort in Velence and Charlotte is returning home today. That's the news from Hngary. Stay tuned for more. Blessings,Larry and Ann
Monday afternoon we were asked to a nursing home. Cynthia shared her testimony, Sandy sang, Terry shared about Texas, and Larry gave some testimony and shared the plan of salvation with those present. It was a very good time. Monday was hectic with so many students as we organized classes and began teaching a Bible lesson on Joseph as we used the Joseph story to teach various English words from the story.
