Our conference near Augusta, Georgia is just about completed. Thank you for your prayers, and please continue to pray that lasting fruit will result from this time. It has been a blessed conference, and I’m sure we’ll be posting an update soon.
“He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river.” (Psalms 105:41)
A true sign we’re in the south: we saw our first lizard on this trip.
Set up for the conference went well last night: each of us pitching in with our normal responsibilities. One neat thing on these trips is that occasionally a family we haven’t seen for a long time will surprise us and show up at a conference. Last night, a family we haven’t seen in 5 years came! What a delight to be able to fellowship for a little while.
Before the conference, the coordinator and several other ladies provided a meal for us. We’re asking for a few of the recipes, so it’ll make ATaste Away from Home for sure!
We’re looking forward to our third weekend conference (out of five) this weekend in Waynesboro, Georgia. Please be in prayer that the Lord Jesus will work in all of our hearts.
“For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now” (Philippians 1:5).
We’re thoroughly enjoying living on the bus. This morning was one of our first “free” mornings; we’re here in Sumter, South Carolina. We made a quick trip in to WalMart (where we parked), and schoolwork is being done, computer work, music practice, and even a little wiring work.
We’re grateful for those who are praying for us! Yesterday afternoon, we were winding our way throughout West Virginia–I don’t think they have a stretch of straight road! Dad did a wonderful job driving Uriah. We’re looking forward to the conference tonight in Sumter, and then on to Augusta area, Georgia tomorrow.
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” (Psalms 133:1).
Monday evening, we did a conference in Wilder, Kentucky (right outside of Cincinnati). We’re grateful for the coordinators providing dinner for us beforehand. We had a last-minute change of rooms, and people pitched in to help move things around. Several friends came to the conference, and it was a delight to see them. We’re looking forward to going back for a weekend conference November 6th and 7th.
Last night’s conference in Cleveland had been scheduled only about two weeks ago, yet they had worked hard to get the word out, and we had a nice attendance. Six families from the Deuteronomy 6 group and our coordinator blessed us with dinner–a big “thank you.”
“The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. . .” (Hab 3:19).
We enjoyed several hours at the Creation Museum on Monday. This was the second time we have visited it, and we were looking forward to going there again. We are particularly blessed by the way Scripture is continually brought into the displays and presentations. We also learn many details about how science can support creationism. This time there had been a petting zoo that had been added since our previous visit, including some animals not usually found in petting zoos. Our favorite part of the Creation Museum remains the planetarium. We are grateful to those who made it possible for us to go to the museum.
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
