Sunday, September 30 was not like any Sunday we have had in Nauru. Since it was the 5th Sunday of the month we had lunch following the morning service then we closed the day with an early afternoon service. Leo took everyone home while I cleaned up the church area and did the dishes. We had a couple of hours rest and we headed to Bro. Danio's and Mona Lisa's Naurun church. What a blessing it was to be there, everyone was so friendly and kind. The singing was special and a real blessing to our hearts. Bro. Danio did the announcements, in Naurun, and gave the pulpit over to Leo, he preached from Matthew 9:35-38. We said our good byes and headed homes because we had arranged with a church group in the Netherlands to say hello to everyone on Skype. We had 'stood in the gap' with this group in 2011 and it was good to 'see' everyone again. What a blessing these folks were to us during our time there.
This is for you Bro. Richard ~~ God has provided in many ways including bananas growing in the front yard.

On September 2, 2012 it was Father's Day in Nauru. The man on the far left is Washington, he was a first time visitor ~ After the service during our fellowship time Leo sat down with him and showed him from the Bible his need to be saved. PRAISE The LORD he saw his need and accepted the Lord Jesus as his personal Saviour. He had called early Sunday morning to find out what time the services were.
Sunday, September 9, 2012 Washington returned bringing his youngest son with him. We had a wonderful day with 34 in attendance, we were excited to have Merhonda back to the services. The day began with dark clouds rolling in and so we had Sunday School / Junior Church inside. The children have been learning the books of the New Testament and we played a game which they really enjoyed.
The boys won this round. Two of the children are able to say the New Testament books 'backwards' ~ I was impressed.
