Many of you all know that before my family and I came here three years ago we had been missionaries in Botswana for nine and a half years. Being Americans living in a foreign country, there always tends to be a few things that you miss. One of the things my son, Judah, and I missed the most was American football. We were excited the day that we found out that Botswana was going to start broadcasting ESPN. We thought, “Great! Now we can watch football again.” It was to our sad surprise to discover that there was something known as ESPN Euro. Yes, it was sports dedicated to European sports fans. What a letdown. Then, it happened for real. They announced that they would start showing American football. Boy, were we excited. Because of the ministry I was doing I was not able to be home when the games aired; so, I would set it to record. Once again I encountered another letdown as I was watching the game that I had recorded. All of a sudden, a voice came on and said "due to the time constraints we now move ahead in our programming." This happened about three times. We missed a lot of the good stuff. Well, last week even though a lot of the goods were presented, there were still some crucial items that were not covered. I encourage you to come back for the last courses of reconciliation soup: “The Stirring, Serving and the Tasting.” It will definitely be worth your while. Be ready to taste and see how good our Lord is.
Hope to see you Sunday.
