Hey everyone! Today is Sunday and as some of you may know Cristi and Irina are on vacation in Turkey. Since Cristi wasn't there to preach today we had Mike Babcock delivering the message with his wife Elvira translating. I thought Mike did a really good job with the passage he taught from, 2 Timothy 3:16. In the passage it says:

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteou

Mike gave an illustration that I thought was a good analogy. He said "some people view Heaven as a place on top of a mountain and that there are many ways to reach the top. This doesn't agree with what the Bible says though. The Bible says that there is only one way to heaven and that way is Jesus Christ". This is so true but so hard for many people to understand. Many people say or think they can get to heaven if they do more good than bad in their lives and can get to Heaven on works. Of course we know this not to be true and we know that the Bible says that our works are like filthy rags to God and that there is no way to get to Heaven by works. I thought Mike did a great job want to thank him for his time and effort.

This Morning we had 16 or 17 people attend our service and we hope for even more in the future. The area that we really need more attendance in is our Sunday afternoon youth meetings that are for teens from ages 14 to 18 on Sunday afternoon from 5:00 till 7:00. If you know anyone who wants to come just invite them and tell them to call me at 0788254664 and I can meet them in front of the Nr. 9 school so they can come. Anyone from 14 to 18 are welcome!

Oh and one more thing tomorrow I'm going to try and get the blog translated into Romanian so that everyone can read it!

Hey Cody, thanks for the info about Mike's sermon. He didn't say that much about how it went, but as Proverbs 28:2 says, "Let another man praise you and not your own mouth!"
