We are doing well up here in the mountains - Greatly encouraged by a day in the House of the LORD with our brothers and sisters!
This was Derrick and June's last Sunday, they will be missed! Would you please pray for our church in this time of change? Thanks. We are looking with eager excitement for what God has in store! For the Women's Resource Center as well - we are praying for the right director to lead there.
I do have to tell you about Jacob in Sam's club on Saturday.....we were there picking up supplies for our church's trick or treat street outreach, and after checking out and eating lunch there, the boys and I struck up a conversation with a lady sitting close by. She was obviously pregnant, and we were chatting surfacely about raising boys, she was having twin boys. When Jacob piped up, and with confidence, asked her if she knew Jesus. (I love it when he does that......what an encouragement and challenge to me to cut the 'small talk' and get down to the real meaningful business!) She quickly replied, that she did know Him, and I offered a quick "Praise God!" And just as quickly as he started the conversation, Jacob ended it with a "Oh, good, then I'll see you again in Heaven! I'm really looking forward to that!" What a smile that lady passed his way....Too cool.
We covet your prayers for our 'little missionary" May we all be so bold with a stranger this week! Life is short, and it's the most important decision we each make, our eternal destination depends on it.
