Sunday January 20, 2008 - Meeting with friends

The meeting today with our friends from our home church, Calvary Chapel of Melbourne, is one of the greatest encouragement. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of people who showed up on a Sunday afternoon, 1:30pm to 3:00pm, considering that the last service ended around 12:15pm.
Our family, my wife Dinette, my daughter Dina, my son Roby, and I also stopped by the church photo studio for some pictures.
We had a wonderful and warm welcome to CCM. I thank you all from CCM for making us always feel right at home.
May God richly bless you.

I arrived home to Palm Bay to be with my kids and my wife. I have not seen my daughter Dina for over a year now. I am on my way to the Calvary Chapel pastors conference in Saint Petersburg, Florida.
I am looking forward to being refreshed by the teaching of other pastors.

Young men praying to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord after a very eventful trip. We set out to got to the beach and had 3 flat tires on the way. We were supposed to get there by 12 noon but it was 2 o'clock and we were still on the road.
We had a Bible Study on baptism where some of our young friends really struggle spiritually and ultimately gave up and surrender to our Lord and Savior.
P Steve Cole and I baptized 12 of street kids, 3 people from the computer classes and 2 from the church.

Beach baptism: 17 people total got baptized this time and we already have a waiting list from the church since not everyone could make it to the beach with us.

We were very blessed by their presence and P Steve's teaching, specially the teaching on the Holy Spirit. We also went to a village called Fonts-Verrettes to minister and being ministered to by our brothers and sisters there.
