  • Notes from Sunday – 11/27/11
  • Crystal and I are in Antigua & Barbuda.

    I am here to preach for the East Caribbean Baptist Mission led by Dr. Hensworth W.C. Jonas.

    The Central Baptist Church, one of the oldest Baptist congregations here, celebrated its 46th church anniversary this weekend. Tryells Baptist Church and Covenant Baptist Church, which are plants and extensions of Central on different parts of the island, also celebrated almost 20 years of ministry.

    This is Antigua’s Harvest Celebration, which seems to be similar to our Thanksgiving. It is a time when the people here give thanks to God for his provisions. The various congregations dress their chapels with fruit to signify God’s provisions, goodness, and faithfulness.

    I preached at the Tyrells Baptist Church for the 8 AM Service. Then I preached about 20 minutes away at the Central Baptist Church at 10 AM.

    Sunday evening, I preached again for a joint service at the Central Baptist Church.

    Over the next three nights, I will preach an evangelistic meeting – one night at each of the locations in the Baptist circuit, as it is called.

    The weather here has been beautiful. Even though it rained really hard last night, it still felt great outside!

    Various insects are eating us alive. It goes with the territory, I understand.

    I received reports that Shiloh had a great day of worship yesterday in my absence. God be praised!

    Thanks to Vince Towns and Brodes Perry for ministering the word to the saints.

    I really missed being in worship with my congregation yesterday.

    My phone has not been working here. That may be a good thing.

    The USC Trojans hung 50 points in a shutout against the UCLA Bruins. Just wait until next year, when our sanctions are over!

    Looks like we are headed for a LSU-Alabama for the BCS championship. I have no problem with this.

    The Jags lost at home to the Texans with a no-name quarterback, 13-20.

    Matt Leinart just cannot cut a break!

    The Cowboys beat the Dolphins on Thanksgiving. Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful!

    Tim Tebow.

    I do not think I care that the NBA has reach an agreement and will soon begin a shortened season. I may change my mind when the NFL season is over.
