I was up yesterday at 5.30 am and arrived at the farmstead for the funeral service of Tarcísio's father one minute before time for a 7 am kick-off. This is my own father's training on time still paying dividends! The service gathered 30 local farmers and went well. Two of the hymns nobody knew so I sang them alone.
Then in the afternoon I travelled to Campina Grande in plenty of time for the EAB/ACEV Bible College graduation where I spoke. There were 16 graduates PTL! It was a lovely service. I got back to bed in Patos at 1.30 am pretty tired to put it mildly. Below is my view of the service.
