God is sooo good! We had safe flights with no problems. However, the enemy has been attacking the circumstances of CousinBeth's family and ours. The Lord prevails and we praise Him!

Last night was amazing! What a blessed event for the Lord! The music, and drama were Spirit-filled, and healing. We shared much emotion, but the Lord gave us strength to be able to serve. Oh how I wish you could hear Deanna and Whitney sing! It was as if they were singing directly to their Savior! Oh wait...they were!! Their voices moved and stirred so many as they gave their all for Him. They were not the only ones to share in music. You would be blessed by each person and group that shared!

Meeting many of our blog family from NC has been a huge comfort and inspiration. Too many to name, and I do not want to leave anyone out, but know that there were many who have blessed us in attendance.

At the conclusion of the evening we saw a 60 something year old gentleman, and single mother of two give their hearts to the Lord. The heavens are rejoicing, and I am in awe of my God. Statistics show that once past the teenage years, there is a very low likelihood of one surrendering their hearts to Jesus. Not on this night. Praise God for new believers.

I am so thankful to have been able to share the gospel and about it's impact on Beej's life with this celebration. Oh how God is working! Please keep praying, as we have another "Dinner Theater" tonight, and two services tomorrow to sing and share with.

The evening was videotaped, and will be made available through Christ Wesleyan Church. More detail later.

CousinBeth, her husband Dennis, and children Angela, David, and Matthew portrayed a drama based on Beej's life. The Holy Spirit moved in Dennis' heart to write this, and I am so thankful that he was obedient. What an amazing blessing, and oh how the Spirit moved in the audience!

Thank you so much for lifting this event up to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Serving the King beside you,

dad


Erin, I hope you and your parents are coming tomorrow.

Lattany, we have been lifting you before the throne, and are so thankful you are healing. Please give us more details about your trip, and how the Lord moved, and your illness.

God has been prompting me to pray and pray--how wonderful to see His work in so many lives (although I can't help being a little sad not to share in person--yet).

Your blog family is continuing to cover you with prayers in pink--thank you, Dennis, Cousin Beth, and family for your obedience to share this amazing story.

Sent with extra love and even more prayers!

Praise God that He patiently waits for those of us past our teen years to hear Him calling us. I know I fit into this percentage, being saved at 43.... Oh how the angels are singing..
Continuing to lift you ALL up in prayer to the throne room. How I wish I could be there to join in the celebration.

In His Love
Linda

Thank you for coming to NC and sharing your story with us at Christ Weslyan. I know you have touched the hearts of many, you have for our family. Your family will forever be in our prayers. Your son was and is still amazing, to touch so many lives before going home to our Lord and still touch so many today. Have a safe flight home.

What a beautiful picture you paint of that night -- joyful worshipers, hearts turned towards God -- what a mighty God we do serve.

Thank you sincerely for your prayers. I am recovering, but still find myself very weak and unable to do much (including the computer) for very long. This has been especially hard since I became sick only a few days after returning from my trip and I'm SOOO anxious to tell *everybody* about it. God is teaching me patience. I will surely share more details with you, once I am stronger and able to write more.

Praying for Cousin Beth's family and for yours.

Love in our Glorious Savior,

I just want to encourage all of you to keep using your gifts for the Lord...He is using you all in amazing and powerful ways...I'm sure that we won't ever know the full measure of it...but just know...that he has poured out his Sprit upon you and it splashes onto others when they are around you..."when we are weak ...he is strong"...
so thanks for the splash!

I've been praying almost continually for you all.. I'm incredibly amazed again at what God's doing and wish I could have been there! Life is war, as BJ said to me over and over. But every time he followed it with, "God is love, and this is true."
Love you

As I watch Deanna back at work at PVLE , I see her slowly return to the smiling wonderful spiritual Deanna we love and know. Deanna, you will never know your daily walks thru PVLE give me the spiritual direction I need each and everyday. I thank God each day that you have the strength to come back each day and feed each of us with spiritual food. thanks... Deanna
