Monday, December 10 in Amman
Every morning we meet for breakfast and devotions at 9:00 am. Breakfast is usually a Jordanian pastry (Jordanians love sweets), pita bread, eggs (fried and hard boiled), cheese, olives, nutella, peanut butter and strawberry jam, cereal, juice, tea and coffee. This morning eleven members of the team went on home visits to members of the congregation. They are bringing food coupons to the families and visiting with each family. They will probably have tea with the families and pray with each of them. Tomorrow the rest of the team will do the same. I believe our team will experience the heart of this ministry here in Jordan by visiting the refugee homes. Tonight our women will present the program for the Women's group at the church. We will be doing a skit based on the parable of the Sower and the Seed with a short Bible study on this passage to follow. We will spend time worshipping the Lord through song, and then we will try to teach the women to pray aloud in their group (They have not been able to get the women to vocalize their prayers so please pray for us as we attempt to help them break the sound barrier). We will close with prayer and a time of refreshments and fellowship. The NWC women will present a 2 hour program for the Girls Group at the church on Tuesday evening. Again, please pray that we can be light and salt while we are here and that we can bless the resident missionaries and the congregation. It will be a short time and we will be home and we all want to finish this race well. Blessings and love to you all!
