We had originally planned on leaving Leavenworth Thursday morning, but at the last minute, we had decided on Wednesday at lunchtime. We are grateful for having left early as a winter storm blew through the area Thursday, dumping over 8 inches of snow. We were all happy to have missed the storm and enjoyed the warmer temperatures in Arkansas.
Ft. Smith was the first of seven weekend conferences for us, with a week break between Ft. Smith and Oklahoma City. We had been lifting up the conference in prayer for weeks ahead of time, and we weren’t disappointed. The Lord brought many families, including one, who had had car trouble and lived five hours away, but they had decided to rent a vehicle so they could attend! Another family had been set to go OKC last year, but due to circumstances beyond their control, weren’t able to, and they were excited to come to Ft. Smith. The coordinator, and her friend who helped, had attended a conference we did in Ft. Smith eight years ago. They did an incredible job, and the conference ran so smoothly. Hearts appear to have been encouraged in the Lord Jesus from the feedback we received. We pray lives will never be the same!
P.S. Autumn Days didn’t make it from the printer’s Monday, but they are expected this afternoon! The CDs will also be in today. We’ll be posting as soon as both items are in.
