The Banquet

The Banquet was a huge success. We had 60 people come out to learn more about ministry. This was a great avenue for us to meet new people and share our vision with them. We were blessed to have so many wonderful table hosts and their yummy desserts too. We added 8 new monthly partners to our team and many people gave us one time gifts to go towards our ministry. We were blessed by a collection of the Alabama Singing Women who shared a patriotic medley, testimonies that were shared, and the encouraging words from others. I will try to find a way to post some of the video on here soon. Thanks to all our friends and family who helped make this event so successful! If you couldn't make it, and still want to support us, there is still time, just let us know.

Phenix City, AL

WE are currently in Phenix City, Al. This is our last scheduled trip here for a year or so. We are excited to be going to Texas and see all that God has in store for us there. As I ponder sometimes, I wonder just what the next step in time will look like. And I don't know all of it, but I know some of it. And that is encouraging to our hearts.

I want to encourage you to examine your heart. Ask God are you living this adventure of life with Him. I know to many people it looks like we are crazy doing this year long trip of faith and trusting God for a place to stay and where to eat. But our desire to be right where God wants us, ministering to His people, far outweighs any "normal" right now. We can feel the time winding down, but what an adventure this has been. Our kids love being in one room, they love having us all to themselves, and we have laughed, learned, explored, cried, become angry, packed, repacked, napped, giggled, and enjoyed together. You really have to try this kind of faith. If we can do it, you can!!

Saying "good-bye's" that will have to sustain us for a while is hard, but disciples left their families to follow Him. And so do we. Pray for God to be with us in the next few days.
