We very much enjoyed worshipping at “Central Church” in St. Petersburg. The service was 2 hours long, and included my dad giving a greeting and myself preaching on John 1:1, along with another sermon, much singing, public repentance, a children’s song, and much prayer.
We had a lunch of cabbage soup, buckwheat, and liver. Our hosts graciously spared us the liver!
We will be teaching a class on preaching difficult passages Monday through Friday.
Tuesday night we will be visiting a drug rehab center a few hours outside of the city.
Wednesday night we will be ministering to a home group at one church plant in the city. Engle will be leading a devotion.
Thursday night we will be having dinner with two pastors and their families.
There is snow everywhere! We have already been encouraged and hope to be useful to the Lord by serving his church here.
