DM Spring Break 2009 - Day 2

Today was quite the busy day. We started off at one of our host's houses, and then met up with everyone else at church. The church that two of our hosts attend meets at the Disciple Maker's headquarter building. They have an attendance of roughly 50 people and no formal pastor. Instead, people on the deacon board take turns leading worship and sharing messages. The sermon was really cool. It was on I Samuel 4, which I had been reading not a few days before. The rest of the day was filled with softball, ultimate frisbee, and good homecooked meals. I ate both lunch and dinner with my host, and they are a really nice couple. I'm looking forward to spending more time with them and learning some great new things from them. This evening after a short break we went to another couple's house for a Bible study. We studied Mark 9, and I was quite impressed at how much stuff there is to consider in a single chapter. Tomorrow is going to be a busy day, with an early morning and a lot of work to be done!

The verse of the day is John 15:4. "Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me." This verse was really appropriate for today. It seems today's theme could be trusting in God and getting strength from Him instead of from my own power. I was feeling really crummy earlier today, but I specifically asked God for the strength to get me through it, and He provided it. He provided it later than I would have liked, but His timing turned out (yet again) to be perfect.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow and starting the installation of the wireless system. There may be a fair bit of nerdspeak in the next update, so beware.

I am looking forward to the "nerdspeak" as long as you promise to explain what it means...either in the blog or in an email. ;-)
