We are continuing to head south, and today’s stop will be Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina (Charleston area). We are grateful for our conference in Boone last night. More on that and last weekend’s later.
“The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.” Psalms 18:46
Last Tuesday was a beautiful day for our next stop. The countryside in Pennsylvania is very picturesque: rolling hills, farms, pastures, etc.
We hurried through set up, as time was a little short, but we made it.
We had an awesome group. People were so grateful we had come and we were blessed to see old friends and meet new ones as well. It is exciting to see people catch a vision and be truly energized for the potential their family has for Jesus!
“As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.” Psalms 18:30
On Monday morning we headed north from Greensboro. Our drive went well–nothing eventful–and we pulled up to our next conference in Midlothian, Virginia, mid-afternoon.
Our set up routine is going great, and it’s a blessing to pull together as a team.
The whole evening was wonderful. People were eager and interested in what we shared, and it’s such a delight to talk with them.
One thing I’ve been struck by on this trip is how some families have difficult circumstances, and when I say difficult, I mean difficult. I’m referring to families who have a member with serious, life-threatening health issues. Life isn’t “normal” or “easy.” Yet, as those families have exuded a gracious, sweet, trusting spirit, it has overwhelmed me. God is good. God is good regardless of whether one’s family is in health or their circumstances are perfect. God is good–and our hope is to be in the Lord Jesus. How grateful I am that He saved me from hell!
Thank you for praying for us as we journey. We’re covering a lot of miles.
“How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.” Psalms 36:7
God has been very gracious to our family. We praise Him for opportunities to minister.
We are excited about the new Energize! conference. Friday night, in between music, we each gave a lightning talk on a burden of our hearts. Dad challenged each of us to develop a topic, practice giving it to the family, and then present it. We all loved it!
Saturday, the sessions were engaging and energizing. One thing we’ve done with the new conference is shorten the time slots from an hour to forty-five minutes, and that change worked great. Conference feedback from those who came was so encouraging!
We LOVE making new friends!
We’re grateful to the church who opened their doors to the conference and to the coordinator who invited us. Thank you!
We enjoyed being in Colorado again.
