Churches Visited

While we have certainly seen the challenges of raising our own support, we have also found an unexpected joy - finding new friends in churches where we would likely have never gotten to visit!  We got a little behind on posting about our visits with these churches, so we want to take a minute today...

Partnership Trip: Huntsville

Our final stop on the Partnership Trip was in Huntsville, Alabama - Jon's hometown.  We stayed with Jon's parents in their apartment in Redstone Village, a retirement community where they have lived for the last year.  While we were there we enjoyed some fun times with Mellina and Arvin (a.k.a. Grammy and Granddaddy) and with... Continue Reading →

Partnership Trip: Crosscreek

The second part of our stay in Birmingham was focused on our many friends at Crosscreek Baptist Church in Pelham.  Crosscreek is a special place for us - Jon began working there in 1999, right after college, as minister of music.  Crosscreek was our church family when we were married, and when we had Abigail....

While in Locust Grove, we took the girls to Noah's Ark - an animal rehabilitation center that's... Continue Reading →

We cannot say enough about... Continue Reading →

1/3 Goal Met!!

It has been a busy but encouraging few days and weeks, and we wanted to share a few moments of those encouraging times with you. First, as some of you knew, we had set a "soft goal" to have 1/3 of our annual budget pledged by the end of October.  Coming up on 10/31, we... Continue Reading →

Blessings at the Doorstep

I've been participating recently in a discipleship "Huddle," and our most recent session was about praying through the Lord's Prayer.  In this method, we take each phrase of the prayer and meditate on it, asking the Spirit to show us where this concept meets our lives.  For instance, for the first phrase ("Our Father in...
