I am also thankful for the wonderful testimonies at all three of all services this past weekend. We were participating in Orphan Sunday for the first time and listening to stories of families who have been involved in the foster care system as well as adoptions was inspiring. I want to thank the Thompsons, the Readings and the Lennards for inspiring us and showing us how we can respond to God's call to care for orphans and widows.
The last thing I want to mention, and there's more than just these things to celebrate, is the blessing of our people who are going to Guatemala to build a water well. They leave on Saturday. Please keep these people in your prayers as they represent us all by going into the world and putting God's word into action: Tom Kitchen, Debbie and Steve Blank, and Dessie Pierce. May God protect them and bring them back safely to us with stories of how God moved among them.
What a weekend! What a church!!
