Blessed Week

There has been some really positive things that have happened this week. Let us look at them:

-The Hulk is coming in town
-Meeting planned in heaven
-Science vs. Genesis
-Bible talk training
-Money growing on trees (or kinda)
-Great conversations for great friendships
-Strong preach this weekend
-Learning the art of encouragement
-Sheperding in practice


-The Hulk is coming in town
SO, this monday and Friday, I spent an hour in the university's gym with a brother and a classmate and started pumping iron. I'm working on endurance (so that my tendons have a basis for further musculing) for now: 2-3 sets with 20 reps, focused on the upper body. The lower body should be taken care by the jogging
-Meeting planned in heaven
Now, imagine this: a sister owes me money and can't come in when planned. We move the time to have an 'evangelization date' on Wednesday. It turns out she leaves the bathroom at the same time as a woman that was coming to my Bible Talk. Quickly, I introduced them to each other and they were making friends before I had the time to blink!
-Science vs. Genesis
Good news: they match. My roomate did an interesting and convincing presentation about the creation. One of the biggest stuff: the word used to talk about Adam's creation was referring to making into a spiritual being. This should cast aside all doubts about the first few chapters of Genesis
-Bible talk training
I spent some time with brothers to help them build better Bible talks. The leaders are cool with the idea of a series of workshops to raise up a new generation of leaders
-Money growing on trees (or kinda)
I finally received a chunk of my contract. Yay! My banker would be happy too, I am sure
-Great conversations for great friendships
I spent some great quality times with brothers sisters this week, notably two full hours on the phone yesterday, and one today with a brother I did not know much about.
-Strong preach this weekend
Compare Abel and Cain, their personality, their deeds, and ponder about yourself...
I was translating for someone and I lost a bit of the contents though. I guess I'll steal somebody else's notes...
-Learning the art of encouragement
In the context of lessons learned at the last devotional on dating and sexuality, I'm trying to compliment others on the good things I see in them. I almost feel cheep/flirty/weird... I'm not used on doing anything but bash on flaws...
-Sheperding in practice
My frustrations in discipling relationships might be to an end... for a change, this week, I just gave a few phone calls to brothers and set times together almost by snapping fingers. Now lets make them worth their while! :)
