The blessing of Christian community and fellowship was our class for the day. Brad showed us what it should look like from Acts 2 & 4 and what it must not look like from 1 Corinthians. He did a marvelous job of blessing us all with sound teaching on building-up the church. We were also blessed by being church together with the CBI students. Just like in Acts 2:42, we were devoted to the apostles’ teachings, we shared the unity of fellowship in the Spirit, we broke bread together, and we prayed with and for one another.
Our first progressive meal was the plan for supper. Andrew and Natalie Hayes, who just moved to Phnom Penh in April, invited the four of us over to eat. We knew the Wheelers would be there, but we were delightfully surprised to see the Thomases, the Allisons and Steve Lowery, all from Central church in Huntsville, AL. After supper and a good visit, the fourteen of us stuffed into two Camrys for the journey to the Wheelers, just like in the college days. Nathan and Cheryl blessed us all with dessert and coffee. We capped the evening by singing lots of hymns, all to the praise and glory of God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ….and the whole assembly said “AMEN!”
