What Did I Do This Week October 2013


PhotoPhotoOn Tuesday and Wednesday we worked on the "Chad Project" on the upper property.  And I took some time on Wednesday to do some studying for the Wednesday Bible Study.

We had a great Wednesday Night Bible Study at Rivers of Joy Baptist Church.
Started this morning by taking Charity to work at Union Mills at 7:00 a.m. She worked unto 3:30 today. 

On Thursday I took an hour to do some landscape on.the Chad Project on the upper property. 

Then did some study and as a  researcher done some on some topics.

First: I discovered that I could download from Amazon Richard Baxter's  two volumes :  A Christian Directory: Christian Ethics. Some 1100 pages. And a second volume Practice Resources.  I was able to download them on Kindle Fire.  Then for the first time I download them on my Android Phone. Just amazing.

Second: I am on two website Groups through Facebook.  Love both of them.  They challenge my belief, and cause me to research more about what I believe.

Third: I researched several projects today: And posted them on my other websites:

  1. https://riversofjoybaptist.wordpress.com/2013/10/10/metropolitan-tabernacle-pastors-and-auckland-baptist-tabernacle/   The church that Charles Spurgeon was the pastor and Thomas Spurgeon who took his place. The history of the churches and its pastors.
  2. https://riversofjoybaptist.wordpress.com/2013/10/11/reformers-vs-anabaptist/  The post address the issue of John Calvin and Martin Luther and what they really did. And a brief history of the Anabaptist vs. the Reformers and links to go to.
