Members of First Evangelical Service greet meet after service
We prayed for a missionary after service
I led choir singing "Who Can Satisfy My Soul" (Like Jesus)
Flutess Daniel from First Evangelical accompanied us in some park concerts. What a testimony of his life he shared with us
We marched across Athens in a "Jesus parade"
It was fun but those banners sure got heavy after an hour marching
Here's Lisa, me Jason, Johnny, Lori and Marcie about to catch the trans
My Whole Food in Athens was across from hotel where I ate delicious Tofu and vegetables "yum, yum"
Here's me Heather, Jeffrey and my roomate Jason the violinist
Here Miller teaches us in the ancient city of Corinth about Paul work there
Here I am in Corinth, massive earthquakes over the centuries brought this city to ruins
Here we are waiting for a bus to go the beach on the Mediteranian. This was the seaport in Paul's day that made Athens the commercial capital of the world where people came to make it a center for ideas and Greek philosophers to congregate and meet with new ideas which made it blind to the truth of Christ.
Here we are arriving at the beach
Here I am with my feet in the Mediteranian
There's Johnny, Jeffrey and Jason having fun...what a beautiful day this is
Here we are taking the bus back from the beach...what a great day!

Donna and I at Bema "the judgment seat" in Corinth where Paul was accused
Jenny and I in Corinth
I am deeply indebted to Kathy and Jenny for smuggling a rock and and a shell to take to Nancy from the Ancient City of Corinth. This became the talk of the trip. We had a lot of fun over this. Jeff called Kathy imposing as the Corinth police investigating the disappearance of a rock...Ha, Ha, Ha...
We always gather in the lobby and walk to the trans for our next ministry
Jason and Johnny are some two funny guys had us always laughing. They are such a blessing to be around. They have been best friends since High School days. Jason was my roomate and we had rich fellowship talking about the Lord.
We mostly walked to the trans which is a fast speed rail system most people use in Athens
Here we are riding the trans and usually its too crowded to get a seat
Today we went shopping for souvenirs

We visited an inner city ministry to drug addicts and street people at Omonia square. The Pastor led us in praise and worship before going to the streets which was a surprise. We thought our service was in doors but the Lord had other plans.
The Leader's son is helps with praise and worship on bongos
We sang downtown square in Athens to street people
