This week's lesson (July 7-13): Pentecost

SHIVAN 6
Dear Diary:
Pentecost was GREAT! I mean, we had miracles! Crowds! Thousands converted in a single day! I can hardly wait until we do it again tomorrow.

SHIVAN 7
Dear Diary:
Something must have gone wrong - I mean, NOTHING happened. Maybe tomorrow?

SHIVAN 8
Dear Diary:
A lot of those people who joined on Pentecost need help - a LOT of help! Well, what can you expect? Still praying for another Pentecost.

SHIVAN 9
Dear Diary:
They got some Bible-studies going for all those people who joined, and they're talking about some kind of feeding program for those in need. All valuable in its own way, I suppose . . . BUT IT'S JUST NOT THE SAME!

SHIVAN 10
Dear Diary:
Am I the only one around here who sees the need for ANOTHER outpouring of the Holy Spirit?

SHIVAN 11
Dear Diary:
Somebody asked for a donation to the feeding program - I told them this kind of thing attracts the WRONG kind of people. She said the people in her group would pray for me. THE NERVE!

SHIVAN 12
Dear Diary:
One of the new people asked me to join their study group - said I'd find it a blessing. Told them I was too busy praying for ANOTHER Pentecost. They asked what was wrong with the one we'd already had. THEY JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND!

SHIVAN 13
Dear Diary:
Almost two weeks have gone by, and still nothing!

SHIVAN 14
Dear Diary:
We began with such high hopes.
What went wrong?
