Because we believe in our Lord's last command to believers, Matthew 28:19, our church supports missionaries who are willing to take the gospel to "all nations". Tonight our church commissioned 13 people who are leaving the end of this week for a trip to Nicaragua to teach, help in medical clinics, pray for and with the people, show them the love of Jesus and lead them to have a loving relationship with Him.
I am so thankful to be a part of this group! This will be my second trip and I can hardly wait to get back there. My first trip was a life-changer to put it mildly! I am so thankful I had the priviledge of going once and can't believe I get to go again!
This sweet couple with their little son and a soon-to-be-born daughter were a part of our service tonight also. They are missionaries leaving for the foreign field this week also.....but they live on the foreign field. They are two of the sweetest people! I love their enthusiasm for people and doing the Lord's work wherever He leads them. Not to mention they are such a fun couple to be around! Love them so much!
We had a huge storm here last night and Hubby had to actually saw a tree in half and move it out of our road so we could get to church this morning. And some people say they can't make it to church because it has rained!! No excuse!!!
Lots of towns surrounding ours (and some homes in our town) lost electrical power last night and didn't have any today. Some churches had to cancel church because of no power. We were blessed because we got to have church today and what a blessing we've had all day!
Tonight as we drove home from church it was very cool outside and I checked the temperature when we got home and it said "63 degrees"!! Maybe fall is coming!
