Belleville Report

We left home about 7:15 Friday morning. Belleville (St. Louis area) was supposed to be about a five hour drive. However, we hit a major slowdown, which cost us a little time. When we arrived at the church, we found out that we actually had spoken there many years ago (at least 10+). That’s neat.

Set up went smoothly, and so did music practice. A great group showed up for the small business session. There was good dialog and ideas offered during that time, and then we transitioned to the concert and Inspire! session.

Saturday dawned sunny and cool, a gorgeous autumn day. We began promptly at 9, and our day progressed quickly. Families were very attentive to what was shared, and our hearts were full of joy to see the Lord Jesus working. We saw old friends and met new ones as well. The panel discussion was our most diversified one yet. Not only were the questions very interesting and assorted, we couldn’t even hope to get through them all in the time allotted! Answering questions on the spur of the moment, makes one think quickly ;).

A special joy to me was meeting a new little baby, Gibson, who was named after a Moody character. If you remember from an earlier blog post, one of his brothers wanted to name their baby Gibson, and sure enough, that’s his name. It was a joy to hold him!

Saturday evening, we drove to a state park in Kentucky where we’ve been since. I’ll share some pictures on that later. 😉 We look forward to Louisville this weekend!

Joyfully His,


Business roundtable!





Joseph had a great group of young people.





Lunch break.






I thought this little girl was so sweet, taking notes on her pad. The young people moved to a different, and cooler, room for the last session.

When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee,
Thy face, Lord, will I seek.”

  1. Sure wish we could have been there too! We tried to make it but just couldn’t work it all out in the end. To console myself, I bought the Encouragement for the Homeschool Family downloads and have been so blessed by all the messages so far. Thank you for all the time you invest in your ministry–it truly has changed my life!

  2. What a wonderful update and such lovely pictures!! We are so thankful to the Lord for His blessing your ministry. We look forward to more updates over the next few weeks.


  3. So sweet to see you with a baby in your arms. I hope you are blessed to become a wife and mother one day.
