Teri and I had a very nice visit this afternoon from a Baptist pastor from Poyntzpass, Northern Ireland. He and his wife are from Northern Ireland. They are full of experience and were a big encouragement to us. I learned some valuable things from them about the culture here.
We plan to go down to their church this coming Monday for a week of Bible Ministry as they call it here. I found out from them that a mission is an evangelistic meeting that usually lasts at least 1 week and in the past has lasted up to 12 weeks long, while Bible Ministry or Bible Teaching is primarily for the Christians to build up the church.
It was such a blessing and we look forward to developing a friendship with them and seeing them next week.
