Gary has been one busy man!

You might remember when Gary first got to Malaysia, but now he is in the groove of things here and has kept himself quite busy.  In 2010 he preached a couple of times at Wangsa Maju and the last 6 weeks of the year he taught Bible class at Wangsa Maju and also conducted the cell group on Thursdays at the end of year.  We went to India twice and both times he preached and taught Bible class several different places. This year started off with him preaching on the 9th at Wangsa Maju and then this past weekend he conducted a workshop on Saturday and Sunday at the PJ church.  I love listening to Gary speak!  Yes, I hear a lot of the same stories over and over, but lately he has been adding a lot of history to his lessons.  He has been learning a lot about the Hebrew culture and it has really shown him a completely different way to look at the stories and such in the Bible.  Now, when I listen to him I am just anxious to hear what new thing he has just learned and how he applies it to his lesson.  I have several things that I have written down that I am going to share later, but just get excited because they are quite amazing!!

There were actually a lot more people that came in after I took this picture.  You can ask any Malaysian, they aren't really keen on time :).

Having this opportunity to live in another country was a great way end 2010 and start 2011.  We will be home in exactly a month from today.  It's extremely bittersweet!

I knew he had to be pretty special to get you! Can't wait to hear all he has had to say! I know you will be glad to be "home." However, I am so thankful you have been able to be blessed and be a blessing to the people over there!

Yes, I am so glad God took you two over there to make an impact on so many lives. Do you have any of his teachings or preachings on video or at least just audio?

Oh so Americans are not the only ones who are late to church, ahahaha!
