So yesterday was a day of S's.
First it was Sunday and it Snowed, I also gave a Sermon, but in the end we were Sad
It started out as a great morning. We woke up to a light covering of snow on the ground and it was a brisk beautiful day. Sharon and I got ready for church as normal, but we were especially excited that morning because our good friends Nerijus and Vaida were coming to church with us for the first time to hear me (matt) preach. The service went well and I had a great time talking about the importance of obeying God. Not in a "The Bible says to!!" kinda way, but instead as following the One who loves us and wants the best for us, be it easy or hard. Our friends found it to be fascinating I think.
Then later that day we had a good-bye party for our team mates Peter and Jen. We had Agape students, and friends from church, as well as the Agape staff from Vilnius come to bid our "see ya later." We had fun celebrating good friends who did a great job here in LT. It was sad but we are excited for what God has for them next.
