Back into the swing of things
Well, that didn't take long! We jumped back into activities right away, with football camp. That went very well, averaging 45 kids, having a blast, and sharing the Gospel via the story of the Exodus. A special thanks to Fellowship Christian of Springfield, OH for their hard work and blessing to us. After that we were getting settled back home, into ministry, the life of the church here and getting ready for school. We are so thankful for our church. They weren't sitting around waiting for the Glessners to get back! They've started new ministries, cared for the hurting and needy, continued teaching and discipling, and managed just fine without us! Truly, we are part of a multinational team here, not a one-man-band.
Fall is here (sort of) and we're looking forward to resuming activities. Football is back on us, as we practice several times a week and are reading through Mark 9-16 with the team. We had a visitor, Hannah Christensen, from The Vine Church of Kenmore, WA. Hannah's a nurse and she explored various health needs in the community, making contacts and opening doors to some possibilities for ongoing work. We're looking forward to Amanda Nole's coming next week. Amanda will be here three months learning about missions with us. We're excited and thankful for her to come! So we jump into Colossians 3:23!
