Paul sent this just a few minutes ago about his day yesterday. Sounds like things are going pretty well.
We were welcome to the school at 1115 am by 21 students. Most of the students are from Latvia, with a few from other countries (England, Argentina). As expected, it was a little cool at first; however, very quickly they warmed up to Wayne and his teaching style. The students are are varying levels of understanding of the Scripture, yet it appears there is eagerness in all of them to learn more about the Lord.Yesterday was an eyeopener that they will have a test at the end of the week, and that they have to perform a self evaluation on one sin area in their life. This morning the self evaluation was reinforced ... the the joy of some and the fear of others :-)
Yesterday afternoon was so interesting. Some of the students started asking really difficult questions showing they are deeply considering the mysteries of the Lord: predestination (Eph 1:5,11) .. is God surprised by anything (e.g. Saul in 1 Sam 15:11) ... God is love but He told Hebrews to kill off people (e.g. Canaanites, Amalakites).
