Wednesday Morning Report from Athens


Greetings in the Lord,

I know I haven’t been very prompt in getting my Wednesday morning reports to you this year.  Sorry about that.  No excuses.  Know that in spite of where life has been taking us, we constantly keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

I always think that things might slow down this last term just after graduation and just before summer break.  And then I’m always surprised.  What a great week this has been.

Hispanic Mission in Central Arkansas

Good News!!! 

The Benton Hispanic group is growing. In one hand, there have been 4 baptisms in less than a week, and in the other hand, there were 65 people in attendance last Sunday in worship service at 2:30 pm. We all rejoice for Alfonso, Morgan, Patricia and Elizabeth.  The gospel of Christ is the power of God for salvation! Amen!

Report of Third Week in Athens from Bob Jackson


Dear Friends and Family,


We have completed three weeks of our month long teaching tour in Athens.  The weather has changed from cool (heater weather) to very warm (fan weather) at night.  It has been a gradual change rather than the radical temperature swings we were experiencing in Lubbock when we left.



In Acts 18, Paul stops while in the area of Corinth and Athens at the beachfront town of Cenchrea to mark the fulfillment of a vow or an oath by having his haircut. There's not really a whole lot we know about the place, it is simply memorialized by the faithfulness of Paul.  This is where he stopped to pay his vow.

It reminds me of the necessity of paying our vows.  Paul purposefully stopped and did what he needed to do to fulfill what he said he would do and we need to be as purposeful. 

Cenchrea is a beautiful place, isn't it? I wonder if it looked similar as Paul stood on the shore and looked out over the water?  I would like to think so.  More than that, I would like to think that I will be as faithful as Paul in my commitments.     

Haircut anyone?
