Church started at 8:30 AM, as usual, on the big monitor here in my sewing room. Praise and worship was really good this morning. Evidently, John Hagee's people have upped the game on the transmission. The music used to be pretty bad. NOT the actual music, but the reception over my computer. I sang along with every song while Jerry lip-sinced -- he NEVER sings -- and Lindy listened. I know the words to most of the songs since I was raised on them. Jerry has a wonderful deep, manly voice, but he will not open his mouth and let it come out. I've never even caught him singing in the shower. If I don't know you are here, you WILL hear me singing.
There was a guest from Angola (?), Africa today. An amazing man who said he grew up SO POOR, that the poor people called them poor. He never owned a pair of shoes until he was 18 years old. Somehow, he got to go to school, and he turned out to be a major brain and has all kinds of math degrees. He has a doctorate in some kind of math. After he got all those degrees, he became a preacher. He has crowds -- according to CNN's sky cams -- of SEVEN MILLION people. They have had to figure out a way to have more meetings so he can have just two million at a time. Can you imagine?! Praise God that people in Africa are coming to Jesus. Maybe if we Christians move there, we can have freedom of religion again!
His wife was quite a character. She was dressed in a gorgeous pink ensemble, including a hat. She is known as Mrs. G. O. -- "General Overseer". She was the lady "in charge", and she looked the part. Very classy!
His message began with a prayer ON HIS KNEES. I loved it. Not in a show-offy way at all, but total submission to God. We had to leave about half way through his sermon to get Lindy returned to her Dad, but the first half was about Jesus is the SAME, yesterday, today and forever!
