Last weekend’s conference in Fayetteville went extremely well. Our music session hadn’t been scheduled, but after discussions with the church elders, it was decided to squeeze it in Saturday during the long lunch break. The family scrambled to set up the sound system, and tune instruments. We love to be able to play and sing at our conferences because it allows those attending to see our whole family together.
Heritage Bible Church, which invited us to speak and sponsored the conference, is a family church without programs. If you live in the area, you might want to look into it if you want a family integrated church.
We haven’t had time to tell about our first weekend conference in the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania area. Grace Covenant Baptist Church hosted the conference. We ended up outgrowing their building, and the pastor’s family found another church in a nearby city where the conference could be held. Grace provided Friday evening dinner, Saturday breakfast and lunch for the entire conference at no cost. We loved seeing the servant attitude demonstrated by the church as they foresaw the needs to those attending the conference and then met those needs with the provision of meals. Grace Covenant Baptist Church, in the Wilkes-Barre, PA area, is another family church without programs.
Monday and Tuesday evenings we were in Rocky Mount. Again, we were pleased to see the response to the message God has allowed us to share in our conferences. The Rocky Mount and Wilson homeschool groups blessed us by giving us a surprise birthday cake for Jesse, who turned 12 on Monday.
We have been overwhelmed by the expressions of love shown us on this trip. Thank you to everyone.
Mom gave a ladies’ mini-conference in the Raleigh area this morning. We girls manned the book table, and the guys helped with getting more chairs when we ran out of room, opening doors, and helping with the tear down afterwards. We also squeezed in a few songs at the end of Mom’s last session.
We’re looking forward to this weekend’s Winston-Salem conference.
Joseph took this picture earlier this week; it always takes more than one trip with the cart!
