We continue our look at the book and ministry of Jonah. Why was Jonah disappointed that the Ninevites didn’t “get theirs”? Why are we disappointed when God doesn’t do what we think He should do, especially after we have declared “thus saith the Lord.”
We are starting something new in the Ladies Sunday School Class. Robin
Bartlett will be leading( facilitating) our discussion time and if you donʼt already know,
we meet in the large room in the basement at 11:00 following the morning service and
Beginning on Jan. 16th we will be sharing what God is teaching, revealing,
enlightening, gifting us with from His word. Robin has asked us to commit to spending
time in Godʼs word during the week. Choose a verse, chapter, or book of the Bible and
spend time reading it and asking God to speak to you through it. Write down what you
discover and come and share it with the rest of the ladies. We are hoping that in this
way we can learn from and encourage one another in our faith walk. We want to
involve all the ladies so if you are involved in ministry during the Sunday School time but
want to share with us, write it down and put it in Robinʼs box upstairs and she will read
it to the class.
If you havenʼt joined us for awhile or have been hesitant to come because you
thought you might not know what we were studying this is a great opportunity to come
and spend time together with a wonderful group of ladies who want to grow and learn
from Godʼs word. We want to welcome each and every one of you and learn from the
best resource available, The Bible. Come and see what God is doing in the hearts of
the Ladies of Harvest Community Church.
It is true. No, we haven’t changed missions. But mid January we will leaving Lesotho and will be moving to Tanzania. After much prayer, spiritual counsel from our team, more prayer, trying alternative options for ministry here, huge budget cuts from government for flying, more prayer, meeting resistance to doing what we know we are called to do (’Preach and Heal’), more prayer… Sally and I have been given permission to transfer to work in the Kigoma/Ujiiji area of Western Tanzania. It is a big change. It is a long story of how God has taught us about patience, perseverance, trusting in His ways, and being faithful on a day-by-day basis.
We set out this morning for Iringa, some 8 hours from Dar. I don’t know about you, but before I drive I always pray that God will protect us and other drivers. I did that this morning. We know how dangerous it is to travel African roads and that there just aren’t service stations in every town.

… Moving to the third chapter of Jonah’s story we find a shift from the belly of a great fish to the belly of a great city.
