It has been a wonderful weekend here in Bongolo. Friday evening we had a delicious dinner and played some games with the Newman's. It was great to fellowship with them and hear their insight on being missionaries for many years.
We slept in Saturday morning. Aaron and Jeff had the opportunity to tour the water filtration plant and electrical power setup at the mission station. As Aaron is interested in engineering, it was good to see the inner workings of this place. God has blessed the mission station and hospital with free electricity and water from the nearby river. Amy and Sarah attended a baby shower for the wife of a PAACS surgery resident. They are soon to have twins!
Dr. Jacques (the surgery resident from Congo who visited the US in March) and his wife Dinah had the family over for dinner on Saturday evening. It was a joy to get to meet his family and fellowship with them.
Sunday morning was a special time to attend the local church with my family. What a joy to have the family join our Gabonese brothers and sisters in Christ in worshipping God!
"May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations. Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the people's praise you! Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Let the people's praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear him!"
