Mom! FBC Prattville! 6.13-16.21

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:40 pm  

I’ve had a fantastic yet exhausting few days. Sometimes I’m just too tired to even do my blog!

Sunday the 13th, I spent most of my day getting ready for the team coming to town on Monday. I took my big cart to FBC Doraville and was able to move all my things for The Show to the sanctuary. We have 74 people in town, that’s just too many for the Fellowship Hall.

Ashley also helped me get the projector for the slide show figured out which was a huge help.

I also spent a lot of time going to Walmart and the Dollar Tree to get the things I needed for the week.

About 6:30pm I headed to the airport to pick up my Mom. What a blessing she has been. She’s been a huge help watching and loving on the sweet grandgirls while I paid attention to the team.

Got to FBC Doraville with my Mom and met Ashley and the girls at the church. Ashley is always so great at the presentations and she is really missed. But you gotta do what you gotta do and I’m glad she’s following a career that can really help her family.

After our presentation, we took the team to the Buford Highway Farmers Market. We had a great lunch, toured the market and sang for the shoppers. It was awesome.

From the BHFM we went to four missions: Azalea Place, New Peachtree, Shallowford Pines and Pearl Lane. The kids loved having the teams there and they’ve really been doing a terrific job.

Monday night, the team did a fantastic job hosting a block party for the kids at Azalea and also put on a terrific concert. Awesome!

Tuesday morning I did The Show by myself. Although it wasn’t as good as with my Ashley angel, it was still me and my overwhelming humility keeps me from going on and on about how good it was. I covered Hinduism and Buddhism.

We had a terrific meal at Pho24 and sang at the restaurant.

Tuesday evening, the team did the concert and the block party at New Peachtree which is the sister property of Azalea. It was awesome again. I didn’t stay as long that night because I was just exhausted after two nights of not getting home till after 10 PM.

Wednesday morning I did my presentation on Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In the morning before the teams arrived, I edited the slide show to just have the critical elements that we needed so that the presentation was more streamlined and easier for me to do by myself.

After The Show, we went for a delicious meal at the Hibachi Grill. The team also sang a couple of songs for the people at the restaurant. They did a great job and everyone loved them.

From there we went to Al Madina and enjoyed seeing what it’s like to be in the Middle East and then also sang. Went over great!

Then to Global Mall to sing in the Hindu temple there as well as to the people eating at the food court. Everyone loved them!

Straight to the missions next to work with the kids. They went to the Braves Game that night so I had an earlier evening.

My Mom and I enjoyed being with the girls at Ashley’s house. My car has still been having overheating issues so we waited until the traffic died down before coming home.

I’m still trying to catch up on my sleep, but wanted to write the blog, even without the pictures. Everything that I shot is in these galleries: https://whirlwindmissions.smugmug.com/Teams-2021

Also released a new episode of Verbal Surgery called “No Ledge 2.” /a> It’s great!
