Wednesday Morning Report - a day late

Greetings in the Lord, this good Wednesday (OOP’S – I mean Thursday) morning.

A day late this week visiting with you as Jamie Wootton and I had a full day of visiting local sites here in Greece. Jamie has been with us three weeks so far and has now realized he only has one more week before he heads back to the good ol’ U.S.A. So much to see, and so little time to see it all. We spent a full day yesterday taking the opportunity to get out on a boat and visit three local islands nearby, just to give Jamie the experience of seeing a little of the Greek culture outside of Athens.

We are three weeks done in this school term and only have one more week before we get on with final exams. The students made it through their mid-terms ok, and are now getting ready to head into finals. As always it’s been such a joy to be with them in class. Their enthusiasm in learning God’s word and watching them apply His lessons to their lives, gives us much joy. One Student, Iyke Ibekwe, told me this week, “What we learn in this bible are things that change our lives forever.” Wouldn’t it be great if we all had that attitude towards God’s word?

The city of Athens was a terrible mess again yesterday, as all 30,000 taxi drivers in the city decided to go on a 24 hour strike. That always means the traffic and rest of the public transportation system pays the price. I was glad I had my corner of the bus and subway system to stay out of the way and watch. From my perspective it didn’t seem too bad.

We pray you have a wonderful rest of the week, and know that we think of you all often, and are keeping you in our prayers daily. See ya next week.

With lots of luv to ya,
In HIS Mighty Name
Ron
