The 2016 Ministry Ideaz Summer Picnic

The Ecuador staff at Ministry Ideaz joined together earlier this summer for an afternoon picnic in Tumbaco, Ecuador. All the Ministry Ideaz employees based in Ecuador were invited to bring their families to the reception for good eats, fun games and many thanks and prizes from the owners, Greg and Jade Holland.

“Ministry Ideaz isn’t just a family-owned company, but a business that has become a family,” said Greg Holland. “We wanted to thank all our employees and their families for their support over the years. We couldn’t think of a better way than a fun-filled day in the park with all our family and friends.”

How to Study the Bible and Enjoy It – 5 Strategies

I remember the first time I tried to read the Bible for myself. I was 17 years old. I’d recently gone over the baptism questions. One of the elders asked me if I’d ever read the Bible cover to cover. My honest answer was ‘No.’ I was SURE I wasn’t going to be approved for baptism. (To my shock, I was indeed.)

That night I thought I’d give it a try. I sat down on the floor, cross-legged, with the Bible on my lap. I opened it slowly … reverently … and began to read.
