We are almost finished with our winter pastoring gig here in Lake City and God has blessed us through this adventure. How we wish you could have been here to hear David preach each Sunday and to experience this lovely little town with us. We thank God for your support and encouragement.
We had a glorious Easter here in Lake City even though we woke up to a dreary, snowy Sunday morning. All the churches come together to celebrate our Savior. From Thursday through Sunday we were worshipping together in one way or another. Thursday we held a Christian Seder in the Baptist Fellowship Hall. It was a very unique ceremony where I read the part of the Jewish mother (David said it wasn’t much of a stretch). On Good Friday we attended meaningful services at the Episcopal, Catholic, and Presbyterian Churches. Sunday morning the whole town turned out for a Community Breakfast at our church and then we all walked over to the Armory where several hundred gathered for the Easter Service. David was thrilled and honored to be asked to preach this service!
This month I traveled to New England to speak to a Ladies Retreat in New Hampshire. God worked in a mighty way with all of us through that weekend. I taught on Psalm 23 and shared my testimony which gave all of those women courage to be vulnerable with each other in a very intimate way. Several of the small groups agreed they want to continue meeting throughout the year to keep growing in their relationship to Jesus and each other.
Now we are headed back to Texas for the month of May to regroup and relax with our folks before we come back in June to open the Inn. Please pray for us as we change gears and make preparations for the summer ministry.
Thanking God for you,
