SWAT REPORT # 51    03-13-06


Deu 6:7  And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children…

This Saturday in Racos I observed how that things have not changed that much since Bible times…if you have an eye for seeing things in light of scripture.  Dan, one of our Bible institute students, was teaching the children in photo #5107.  I know you have seen similar photos in my reports in the past but observe several things here…the kids are still coming after nearly a year…there are adults behind the children but because of the angle of the camera they cannot be seen…also notice that the kids are up on the old foundation of a house to keep them from sinking into the mud.  Soon we will have a nice warm building less than 200 yards from this location and we pray we can pack it out with kids and adults. 

1Co 7:31  … for the fashion of this world passeth away.

Photo # 5102 shows the backside of the kids as they listen…but look closer…see the girl in patent leather spike heels…need a closer look…Photo #5103…her foot probably barely reaches past the arch of these shoes but they were made for a very fashionable Amazon woman.  One spike is missing but she has shoes…and probably is the envy of the gang.  I did not select this to jerk your tears and humanitarian giving…there are plenty of agencies to provide clothing for these kids and we have done some of that as well…it was just really funny to observe…the probability is that she wears these by choice.

2Sa 1:18  (Also he bade them teach the children…the use of the bow:

Hey guys…how many of you can join me in good memories of such boy toys as seen in

photo #5105.  Can’t buy those at Wal-Mart.  No doubt these boys are as happy, or

happier with their bows as any rich kid, and all kids are rich in the USA, in America.

Zec 8:5  And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets…

Hey gals…when’s the last time you played hopscotch in the MUD?  That’s what is happening in photo #5106.  I watched and it is the exact game.  Oh, for the simple days and games of 6 millenniums previous.

Act 16:13  And on the Sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; …

In photo #5104 Istvan, another of our Bible Institute students, is praying with some folk who requested spiritual guidance.   It would be great if more people would request spiritual guidance and that prayer could be made instantly upon every street.

Dan 4:32  And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: …

Unless you grew up in the very rural setting of WV or KY most of 100 years ago you have never known a dwelling like this in Photo #5101…they do have a beautiful view although it cannot be seen in this photo…Robin, my wife, said if the same view were in America all the rich folk would own the land planning to build their earthly mansions. 

We had several first time visitors this past Sunday morning and evening…we had 43 in the morning service with a couple out sick…not too many less than that in the evening service…we had a grown man saved on Sunday AM who came as a result of an invitation during one of our street meetings.  Another man came for the first time Sunday PM because he found a tract on the ground with a map to our church.  We told our folk not to pass them out anymore…just drop them on the ground. 

On Sunday nights we have Bible drill for kids as well as adults.  For the very little folk we have Trivia from the AM Sunday School.  Benjamin Logan, 12 year old son of my partner Brent Logan, did a very excellent job teaching the 10 commandments to the children’s SS class so the trivia was about the 10 commandments.  These kids are 6 and under.  I asked, “What were you absolutely not allowed to do on the Sabbath day”?  Paul, 5 quickly answered, “Sin!”…we all had a good laugh…I followed it up with, “There are 6 days in which man can sin…but…”  It took a few minutes to get the congregation back under control as well as myself. 

PS…I send these out BCC “Blind Carbon Copy” so I never know who gets them and who doesn’t…I would love for you just to send one word back in reply…any word you choose…thanks

Having a WONDERFUL time serving the Lord on the eastern front.
