We had a memorable first day of class. The Russian “brothers” have traveled far to be here. We spent the day reviewing the core concepts of expository preaching and discussing the challenges of preaching difficult texts.
Engle even got to share some of his perspective as to what he would do if his pastor ever avoided difficult texts. I assured him that his pastor would never do that!
These men are an example of tremendous sacrifice for the gospel.
Lunch was more soup (potato, I think), and a mystery meat on something approaching mashed potatoes. Tough sledding.
Tonight we will try to find an Internet cafe and a restaurant we are confident in.
Oh yeah- snow snow snow snow.
Tomorrow more class and then off to a rehab ministry center.
