If He Falls Out...Property and a Bible Club

We started a Bible Club on Saturday mornings in Kojokrom. I am not sure how this will go, but we started. We wanted to start sooner, however, we were waiting for our doors and windows to be put on the school room where we meet. It took almost 4 months to finally get done. Now that it is done it is so nice not to have to move all the benches and podium around. Cecelia and Elizabeth have been very instrumental in starting this Bible Club. I am the one behind the scenes and they are the ones teaching. 

Saturday we attended another funeral. It was the father of Elizabeth (below) and a brother to a church member. They asked CBBC to to the funeral. Pastor Prince did the service and Pastor Koasi did the graveside. We had Matthew playing the piano, Naomi and her violin and me playing my flute. We played and they sung hymns and it was a whole lot better than their wall of speakers that burst out headache giving music. 

Esther and Naomi, her dads funeral is next month.

They carried the casket all the way to the cemetery. At one point they had that casket above their heads spinning it around. I just hoped the coffin was nailed shut. If he falls out, that won't be a pretty sight. Oh my stars!

Ok, here it is....drum roll please....LAND!!!!! Our church has been able to purchase a piece of property. It has been a loooooonnnnnggg process and we are not finished yet. We still need to purchase the lot in front of the one we purchased, so please pray for that. This has been years and years of work, and the men are still working on it. A little, ok, a lot discouraging. The Lord gave me a  couple of verses this morning.

Rev 3:7-8 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Here are some pictures of the land:

The purchased part is from the back white wall to where they are standing on the left

ocean front poperty (haha) this is the back of property, looking toward the road and the sea

Why the good news at the end? Well, like I said, I have been wanting to write this post for so long. So many times we've been so close and then it has been striped from us. I am a little hesitant and cautious to share. However my husband has shared it on our newsletter, so, I thought it was time. You can check out his newsletter/blog here.
