Yesterday was a rough day health. I was not feeling well the whole day.
I am feeling much better this morning. I would very much appreciate your prayers for strength to get through the day.
Also, pray for the students, pastors and churches in Jamaica. In some conversations with the students and one pastor who has been sitting in the class, they have stated that the things we have been talking in class have been challenging and need to be fleshed out in the churches of Jamaica but it is a challenge to get people to be more involved in one another's lives - beyond surface level friendliness. Pastor Black, the president of FBBC, has a real passion for Biblical Counseling training. He has been to Faith in Lafayette for several tracks.
It is exciting to think about disciple making going on around the world. In Africa, as we heard about during our missions emphasis month. In Jamaica, as I am experiencing these two weeks at FBBC. In Toledo, as we continue Biblical counseling training and other discipleship training at EBC.
Here is some class info from yesterday and today.
Yesterday we talked about depression and sharing THE HOPE OF CHRIST with others.
This is a quote I shared with the students...
“The God of all comfort, comforts you in your specific trouble so that you can comfort those in any trouble with the infinite comfort you receive from the God of all comfort.” Bob Kelleman
Today we are going to be talking about idols and addictions.
For those of you who have been through Track 1 in the Biblical Counseling you are familiar with this Y-chart.
For those you who have not been through Track 1, first I want to encourage you to take Track 1 next year and second this video refers to a counseling diagram that is used in Biblical counseling.
For everyone, I want to encourage you to watch this video. Not merely for the sake of review or first time information but more so for self-examination.
