MUSINGS OF AN “OLDER” MAN. Nr.46

Standard

Nr.45 ended with: “The beginning of September we drove to the Bible College where a wonderful thing would happen……!”

It had been another busy summer, but we had experienced so much joy and blessing that it had been worth it all. However, we were glad to get settled in at the College where Marina got a job working in the kitchen which helped pay for schooling and expenses. Until school started I was able to work for a local farmer harvesting. Then the time of studying started again and how I enjoyed the classes and the fellowship. I often sat with tears in my eyes as I drank in the rich teaching and the beauty of God’s Word. Some weekends Marina and I would drive “up North” to the area’s where we had Vacation Bible Schools and where we then held meetings, did follow up with the children and visited the parents.

Our little Rosa went along everywhere. She would sit quietly in class while Marina was teaching, never fussing or disturbing the lessons. In between classes Marina would nurse her and on we went, wonderful! And the Lord provided in different ways, we were often amazed and so thankful for His care for us.

I drove up and down to school every day and in between sold Fullerbrush in the city, while Marina worked for some women cleaning house.
