From Pastor Peter 19-Sep-2014


Dear Grace Family,

Greetings from Albania! I arrived on Tuesday and have been enjoying my time with our missionaries, Blair & Sue Alvidrez, their daughter, Katherine, and Tim Pasma & Brad Brandt, the two other speakers that are teaching with me at the Biblical Counseling Training Conferences. There are about 100 people attending two different tracks (Fundamentals & Advanced), and the times of teaching, Q&A, and fellowship with one another have all been very blessed. It's humbling and honoring to be able to serve in this way. Please pray we finish well here in Tirana, and that the next conference in Korce goes just as well.

Also, while I've got you praying, I'll also mention that the Pope is planning on visiting Tirana this Sunday. This is the day we're planning on traveling from Tirana to Korce, and a visit from the Pope will probably mean increased security measures, many road closures, and just overall chaos in a place that is pretty chaotic under ordinary circumstances. Please pray for wisdom to change plans if necessary, safety while traveling, and that we'd respond well to any adverse circumstances the Lord allows us to face during the days ahead.

Here's my view right now as I sit outside my room, looking down at the street below:



Sermon This Sunday
Isn’t it good to be back into the book of Romans? I hope you’re enjoying the ‘pause’ to catch our breath and look back at some of the amazing ground we’ve covered so far in the first seven chapters. This Sunday, Pastor Brad will look at the wrath of God as it relates to our rejecting the glory of God and living for our own glory.

And, hey, invite someone to join you!  This will be a great Sunday that has a message of hope for people that desperately need a Savior.

Special Worship Nights this week @ Florence Campus
Brad Spence and the worship team are inviting us to a rich time of singing and testimonies at the upcoming Worship Nights!  We'll be singing familiar songs and learning new songs (some original songs, in fact).  Everyone is invited. This will be held at the Florence Campus Upper Auditorium.  You'll need to pick a night to attend: Sept 23, 24, 25 or 26, 7:00-8:00pm.  Childcare is going to be provided for the kiddos so you'll need to register them HERE.  This should be a great night of encouragement for all of us! 

I'll miss being with you this Sunday, but look forward to worshiping together again when I'm back home next weekend.


In Christ,


Pastor Peter
