New Church and a Showerhead...

Jake and I went to one of the Presbyterian churches in Anapolis today.  I've never really attended a Presbyterian church before, so I was rather hesitant for the outcome.  We were both impressed with the service.

{Here in Brasil, most churches have Sunday school in the morning, beginning at 9 or 9:30am, and then the main service takes place in the evening, starting around 6:30 or 7pm.}

We will now be teaching a Sunday School class in English at this church, with the emphasis being on missions.  The pastor made it very clear to those interested that this is not an English class, but rather a class taught in English.

We're eager to start something new, and are very excited to have discovered such an amazing, Bible-believing church.  We attended the evening service as well, and were both very encouraged by the acceptance and love by the congregation, among other things.

The church we went to with the Bacheller family was ok, but I found the Presbyterian church to be thriving. I don't know if that would be a word most people would associate with this denomination back home (at least, that was how I thought of it).  Both Jake and I are eager to start attending this church, and excited to have the chance to serve in it!

On another note, hot water in the shower is heated by the showerhead which is literally plugged in to an electrical outlet right in the shower itself [sounds dangerous, doesn't it?!].  Ours burned out the other day, consequently rendering our bathing water frigid.  Thankfully we were able to get a new one, and enjoy a nicer temperature.

We take joy in the simple things!

Hi Ash
So glad you got to go to another church and received such a warm welcome and that you will have the opportunity to teach a Sunday School class in English.
This must make you both feel very excited and is an answer to prayer at this time.
God is good!
Lots of love from NAN xoxoxo
