Then we heard a testimony, watched a video clip and prayed...a lot. The preacher was sick and didn't make it in. I tell you what, tho, it was an awesome time of worship. If you would, pray for Jeff to get well. He's supposed to be leading a Taize` service this week (several actually) and he's still got a fever, etc.
Thanks, everyone, who prayed for Jeff and the rest of us. He was able to join us for all four Taize` services. They went well. It was a very peaceful time. Sadly, it was not well attended, but those who did come left with smiles. Blessings on all tomorrow!
