What a week!~!

What a week! This past week has been jammed packed with activities. First off, Monday brought the Ministers Banquet. We had the pleasure of sitting with old friends we haven't seen in quite a long time. God has sure moved in their lives. We got to talk about the trials and tribulations that were attacking on every avenue a few years ago. Although we couldn't see it at the time God was preparing! Yes preparing and EQUIPPING. Now, a few years later down the road if trials hadn't previously came back then would we be able to do the things that need to be done NOW?? Would we have the stamina?
Camp meeting is always a good thing. Not only do you get to catch up with friends but it makes you look at the bigger picture of Kingdom work. It is just not YOU & YOU alone. One tends to think of only the community church and surrounding areas, BUT when the whole STATE joins in....WOW!~!
The week brought insight, entertainment and encouragement. Let me tell you about the last part: Encouragement.
It was during the Ladies Luncheon that I became encouraged. I had the greatest of honours and privilege to sit at our States First Lady table!! O my word!~! But I will save that story for another day. Trust me it will be a good one........
The topic was "Kick off your SHOES" Joshua 1:3 "I will give you every place where you set your foot..." The speaker was of course none other than our First Lady: Wendy Corder.
During this mini sermon the main focus that was stirred with in my spirit was: It's OK to take off your shoes and be planted and serve right where you are. Claim your ground, don't take no for an answer. Win back your community. We have a promise! Every where we set our feet it will be given to us!
The whole week had been leading to this light bulb going on experience. Trials and tribulations only make us stronger. What a blessing to have them, but even more so of a BLESSING is when you get to the realization that those trials have been turned around to our GOOD. God sure did move this week.
This last photo shows people worshipping, even though the power had gone out because of a bad storm. How awesome is that??
