Cadence Conference

Oh if I could tell you the goodness of who we are with. We are with 350 missionaries, and that doesn't count the youth and children. We are being encouraged by other missionaries, encouraging others, having great messages brought to us, and learning a ton form our break out sessions.

We have been blessed by having Dr. Mark Young, the President of Denver Seminary as our speaker. He and his wife Priscilla are such a blessing. They have been an encouragement to us personally.

The kids have been going to their classes and really love seeing the big picture of being a part of a group of 30 children and 40 youth. They are creating friendships that will last a long time!

Right before we came we were feeling discouraged. As soon as everyone saw us they were encouraging, hugging on us, they were proud of us. AWESOME!

We are blessed to be a part of this organization that truly loves the Lord and longs to see lives and hearts transformed. They all LOVE Jesus. As someone said This is like being at a family reunion...only with people you like!

I had the opportunity to meet Dan & Barb. Many of you know that they were Chris' youth leaders while he was Germany. Dan & Barb had such a huge impact on him and truly helped to shape him into the man that he is today. I was honored to be able to pray over Barb (she has been given 6 months to live as she has terminal cancer). I am forever grateful to the them for the impact they have had on my life, even without ever meeting them.

To tell you that this has been a great week would be shortchanging it. It has been FABULOUS!!
