We are home!!

We arrived home late last night!!! It was truly an amazing trip!!!! I will be adding more pictures and updates in the weeks ahead. I just wanted to thank you all for the prayers and financial help!!! I loved every single second of the trip and its a little hard to be home without tearying up about the things that happened. The team we went with was AWESOME!!!! There were a lot of tears at the airport last night and it was hard to part after such a powerful week!!! Pray that we are able to discern what God wants us to do with what we learned on the trip.

On of our team members shared this video with us today. (Thanks Amy) It again brought tears to my eyes as it shows our earthy stuggle so well and shows us that all we need is to give it up and turn to the Lord!!!!!!!!!

It’s a skit that was done at Winterfest this year set to “Everything” by the band Lifehouse. It brought me to tears and reminded me how careful I need to be every single day to cling to Jesus. We have so many “distractions” that can come against us, tempt us, and tear us away from God. And they will tear our life apart. But, if we spend our days right next to God, including Him in our daily activities, letting Him lead us, we will be protected.

I pray that it moves you as it moved me.

If you need Jesus to come to your rescue and help you fight off the distractions, temptations, and harmful influences in your life all you have to do is ask for His help. Get down on your knees and pray to God. Ask Him to forgive you for your sins, tell Him that you believe that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die for you, so you could spend eternity in relationship with Him.
If you just made a decision to follow Jesus for the first time, or rededicated your life to Him, please let us know.

We would love to hear from you!!!
