November-December Blessings

We experienced many blessings as we drew near the end of 2019.  Here are several of them:

Blessing #1: Thanksgiving with family in Tennessee…

and there were more of us during the week, before we took this picture

We are grateful for each time we get to see family, since they all live so far away! There was lots of laughter and fun…and food.

Blessing #2: After that we spent a few days in North Carolina. Dad did some work on a Without Reservation project and we got to spend time with some dear family in the Lord.

…and since we were relatively close to the Samaritan’s Purse headquarters, we made a day of going there to process Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and some of also us took a tour.

one shoebox gift equals at least one gospel opportunity

every step of processing is important!

Blessing #3: Prison ministry in north Florida! This is something we so appreciate being a part of.  People from all over come to reach out with the love of Christ to those behind the fences.The times of volunteers coming together for corporate worship and testimonies of God’s working during the week are amazing. People share stories that only God can orchestrate!

At one prison, which we have been to twice before but not in two years, a man remembered us and told Dad that he prays for us. That is amazing. And it really blessed us. There are so many people in prison who are not the same person they used to be…you can see it on their faces. Jesus has changed their lives.

Thank you for all your prayers!

And, after being in some nice weather in Florida, we had to quickly transition to some bitter winter winds as we got closer to home. But we usually adjust quickly and we always love our winter wonderland!

The last couple months have been extremely busy…updates are coming!

“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:4-5 NKJV
