Thank the Lord!

First I want to say, Thank you Lord, that when Kelley fell this morning at church she did not get hurt any worse than she did. She slipped on the frost on the ramp up to the door at church. At the time I was leaning into the car to get Anna, and heard something and then turned around to find her on the ground, not really moving. I left Anna in the car, and then ran over to Kelley. Shortly after I ran over there she began saying that she was going to pass out. Then she was gone. I don't know how long she was out, but I think it was at least a minute or two. Finally, she came back to, and I was able to carry her inside and set her down. I went back out and got Anna, and then we just kind of sat there for a few minutes. Kelley was still feeling weird and hurting, but eventually got to feeling better. Thankfully, she just scrapped her knee and elbow a little, with a few more aches I guess. How she got the scrap on her knee without ripping or running her hose I'll never know. Now she is just fine, just a few aches and pains.
Secondly, I thank the Lord for the good reports that I have heard concerning the work here in our region. One new area, in which we currently don't have a church, and new contacts where we are currently trying to operate a mission!

May you never give up the good fight of faith.

Full Week

Well, we have had a full, but good week. I had to work a lot of hours last week, including a little while Sat. but we were able to get in some family time. Friday was Kelley and I's 5 year anniversary. We are thankful to the Lord that He has enabled us to have a good marriage. It is something that takes a lot of work, as anyone who has lived with me could tell you. The church celebrated by giving us some cards and cake. We especially enjoyed the card that Sis. Jernigan made for us. She always sends/gives such wonderful cards. We really appreciate all of the time and love that she puts into them.
Saturday after I got off of work we went to a local orchard called "Apple Works". They have a very beautiful place there and we love going there. They have a small petting zoo, but Anna wasn't very interested in the animals. She was more interested in the people taking care of them. They also, among many of the food offerings there, have pumpkin cake donuts that we just love. We gave Anna some small pieces of on and her facial expressions were hilarious. She seemed to like them, but her face would scrunch up because she is not used to the spices.
Sunday Evening we were glad to have a visit from Bro. & Sis. Jernigan. After service, we had a fellowship with some of the above mentioned pumpkin donuts as well as some apple cider donuts, and apple cider. We had some good discussion during our BTI lesson before service.
Well I started this post on Monday and am just now finishing is up! Anna has learned how to operate her walker fairly well. She keeps running into Kelley in the kitchen and has also learned how to open cabinet doors! It seems as if that child learns something new every day.

May God bless you as you work for Him.

Wonderful Ministers' Convention!

I thank the Lord for a wonderful Ministers' Convention. It started off, Friday night with a banquet for the pastors and coordinators, which was prepared(to my understanding) by the ladies from the Elizabethtown, KY church. It was a wonderful time of food and fellowship. Then Saturday morning the convention commenced. The Spirit of the Lord was definitely present in a mighty way. Bro. Kevin Brown was on schedule to give a 10 min. sermon. I don't know if it was only ten minutes or not, but it was definitely anointed as he spoke to us about walking with hope. I don't have the scripture text with me right now, but he did a great job of following the leading of the Holy Ghost. Later on in the morning Bro. Micheal Jernigan preached a great message as well with his text being from 2 Kings 2. He spoke of how we needed to have the anointing of God. How that we can not live off of the anointing of saints in the past, just as Elisha had to receive his own anointing from God, and could not rely on Elijah's anointing, because Elijah was gone on. It was a good reminder that we need to be seeking the Lord for the kind of anointing that those that have gone on before us had, and even a greater anointing. There were many times throughout the course of the convention that the Spirit of God fell mightily. I, quite frankly, wasn't in much of a hurry to go to lunch, just enjoying the moving of the Spirit.
Well, guess I better get off here. Still have things to do before tomorrow morning and I do need some sleep eventually. Please be in prayer for our Children's Day that we are planning. We are having a meeting tomorrow to talk about this and other upcoming event(s) tomorrow to get everything lined out. We want to minister to our community through God's anointing.

May you walk WITH and IN hope on this journey for the Lord!

I just want to thank the Lord for a great Sunday of services. Especially Sunday night. The Holy Ghost poured out on us and there was just a hunger present for winning souls. We prayed for a number of people who need to be saved. We are trusting the Lord that we will see these prayers come to fruition. I believe that the desire of our local church is to be winning lost souls to Christ, as well as ministering to those souls where they are at. Please pray for us as we strive to reach a lost and dying world to Christ.

May you be encouraged in your work for the Lord.

Well, we had a busy weekend.
Saturday, I went to Evansville. Had a good time with the Loyas. Even though I got off to a rough start. The first thing I did was lock my keys in the car! So, we spent about thirty minutes getting the doors unlocked. Everything went pretty good after that though. Right before I left we went and checked out a place to rent for services. We were able to get it at an agreeable rate. The man we will be renting from is a friendly, mostly baptist(as he described himself) older gentleman that definitely does not look his age. It is across town from where the Loyas currently live, but just a couple of miles away from where they used to live. We are planning to start having services there the next time I go down, towards the end of October. Please pray that they will be able to make it to the ministers' convention. They have not be able to make it out to any of our church events over the past year, and would really enjoy the fellowship and encouragement.
Sunday went pretty well also. I did find out that a member in Sturgis, KY passed away Sat. Please remember Bro. Leroy's family. He was almost always at all the conventions and retreats with his guitar and amp, always ready to play music. I know that he will be missed by a great many people.
We had dinner and fellowshipped with some old friends tonight. We stopped by Sat. and spent some time with part of the family. But all of the family was there tonight.
Please pray for our local church. I was wanting to have a VBS this year, but we were unable to due to time constraints before school started. However, I have recently gotten the idea to do a children's day on a saturday. I haven't gotten much worked out yet, but I believe that we could be a blessing to the children in our community.

May God bless you as you work for Him
