pardon my exuberance

But the Sunday Singing lives on!

IN PARAGUAY!



a tidbit from Matt's weekly email:

Our group has now started something that I wanted to announce to you, especially Mom and Kiana and Rachel. I started a class about three weeks ago on the hymns and singing lessons, but for a big group. Well, to be short, Sunday NIght Singers now exists in Filadelfia, Paraguay! I play the little keyboard while they sing, and they just love it. Yesterday's singing session came after a long weekend where we had a little runin with a drunk and both me and my companion had some little death threat incidents. However, drunks say things that they do not mean. If they ever decided to do anything about it, I would be scared. However, we'll be fine. Anyway, the session was an incredible one. As we sang the last number, I asked them to sing The Spirit of God like a Fire is Burning nice and loud, and the Spirit filled our little circle. It was an enveloping feeling to see these new saints who hardly even know the hymns, be blessed by something that I learned so, so long ago. Talents really are incredible. I have been so blessed to learn more about and use mine the last year.

This Eddington tradition really is a life-changing one! It's one of my favorite things about your home and our Roosevelt visits. :)

That is one of my favorite things about the Roosevelt visit too. I am planning on making it a Pryor... (Taft) tradition too! Love it and love how your brother is so optimistic!
