It’s been an eventful week. In a way, it doesn’t seem as if we left LaCrete Monday morning. But, yes, it was only Monday. After a short night’s sleep Wednesday night, Dad woke up, had his time with the Lord, and was ready to go at 5:30 a.m. The rest of us, except for Mom, decided to try to sleep a bit longer before emerging from our bunks.
We crossed back into the States yesterday mid-afternoon. As we all climbed out of the bus, we were greeted by four border patrol agents. I think they were expecting a full bus load of people, so we surprised them. They decided to take a look around the inside of the bus, so we waited in the cool breeze, but the sunshine helped to warm us a bit :-). It didn’t take long, and we were soon on our way.
We did some shopping at Wal-Mart last night, ate dinner in the bus, and then headed to the church. We will be doing our conference set up this afternoon! We would be grateful for your prayers as we prepare for this weekend’s conference here in Minot.
Oh, someone left us a blog comment the other night, stating that we deserved the bus problem we had Wednesday night. You know what? You’re right, and we deserve worse. We actually deserve Hell! But, each one of us in the Maxwell Family has accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, so although we deserve it, by the Lord’s grace, we do not get it.
- Romans 6:23 says: “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
- And, Romans 10:9-11 says: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.”
