Yesterday, I wrote a blog about how Erin and I are at a missions conference at one of our supporting churches. This morning we had the opportunity to share with both adult and teen Sunday school classes about our ministry in Beattyville. It was a blessing to be able to share and then talk with so many people who have been praying for us and have had a huge impact on our lives and ministry that we had never even met.
After church this morning we went out for lunch with an older couple from the church whose granddaughter and grandson-in-law were friends of mine when I was at Moody. We really enjoyed our time with them and hearing about how they have been in this church for over 50 years. Maeven especially enjoyed the “Care Bear” they gave her and hugged it most of the afternoon.
Tonight we had a very exciting and challenging message about what God is doing in missions around the world, particularly in Central Asia and various Muslim Countries. It was great to hear how so many people are coming to Christ in such persecution and violence. I was definitely challenged in my faith to be bolder in a country where I have such freedom to share Christ!
Maeven has really enjoyed being able to practice her walking and also crawl all over the church. The opportunity to play in a large nursery and meet lots of new kids has been great for her. Tonight she had played and enjoyed herself so much that she fell asleep immediately.
This conference has been so encouraging that we can’t wait to see what else God has in store!
