Rain. They’ve been needing rain in this area of Montana as they’ve been in a drought and today we arose to rain. I’m not sure when the rain started but it rained from the time I woke up until just about time for our Bible Camp to start. That last part of the sentence is a testimony to God’s lovingkindness. The food team had it fairly easy this morning as it was cereal and oatmeal for breakfast.
I spent sometime reading John 13 this morning and reflecting on how our service in Montana is just a simple way of seeking to serve like Jesus. There isn’t immediate fruit and not everyone received or even understands the work of ministry, but that didn’t stop Jesus from washing the feet of Judas and Peter. Nor should a lack of immediate results stop th work of the disciples of Jesus in the Great Commission today.
The time for ministry work didn’t start until later in the afternoon, so our team from Oak Grove borrowed a vehicle and did a little sight seeing at the local WalMart and then upto see Flathead Lake. Montana is beautiful. I’m not sure I can emphasize that enough. We also spent sometime at the People’s Museum in Pablo. It was really helpful in understanding more about the history and culture of the people that make up the Flathead Confederation.
Ministry this evening consisted of cooking lots of chicken burritos and working at the Bible Camp. After serving supper Kevin and Tracie worked with the kids at the archery station again. I was given a new task this evening. My role was that of grandfather. This meant spending sometimes talking about the story we had heard and really another opportunity to share the gospel. Each age group spent a little time in the tent. I’m praying those who said they had received the gospel truly had and that those who haven’t will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus.
soli deo gloria
