Our fifth weekend conference for this fall is done. We arrived in Hammond about 2 p.m. on Friday. The church that allowed us to use their building was extremely hospitable andÂ accommodating. The location was perfect, because it was right off the interstate. Since the temperature was almost 90 degrees, we were also grateful to plug in, so we didn’t have to run the generator for air conditioning in the bus.
Set up went smoothly. Jesse and John work together to unload items for the book tables, and they do an awesome job. It has seemed the set ups have gone very smoothly on this trip. The process has become quite streamlined.
The Lord brought people to the conference from Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and of course, Louisiana. Our coordinator’s family had attended a conference two years ago in New Orleans, and it was a joy to see them again.
We met some wonderful families, and we delighted to hear how the Lord is working in their lives. With there being eight of us, opportunities abound to have many conversations. Then, at the end of the weekend, we get to share with each other who we talked to and what we learned about them. Hearts were again open and enthusiastic to what was shared.
I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that the Lord has had His Hand on each conference. We delight in serving Him.
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding
abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that worketh in us.”
