We had our first women's prayer group this morning!
I don't remember if I've blogged about this, so here's the RD version: The men in our Bible class have had a prayer group for years, I got a bit jealous and said the women also needed one, someone said I should just start one then!, I started to explain that I have all the personality of dead grass and that me starting things usually does not work out, and the person sitting next to me (Kathy) said, "We'll do it!"
So, that was almost three weeks ago. This week I harassed everyone via e-mail (with more harassment to come... hehehe... I love this part), with the result that there were five of us gathered at 6 AM for fellowship and prayer. Now, this is more than double the two (Kathy and myself) that I thought we would have, so I was delighted. And the other women there were quite enthusiastic, so I have high hopes that we will go on, grow, and continue to meet for a long time.
And in other news... I need to get my house ready for the convergence of middle-school girls tomorrow evening. Can't wait.
