It’s been a busy week, actually a busy month! Our daughter’s getting married and the reception is here on our farm in the barn in just three weeks! We’re incredibly busy getting ready for that on top of a bunch of other exciting things.
This past week I spoke for an amazing church, Fairview Baptist. The theme was living on less and trusting God more–we had a powerful time together.
We traveled three hours to Dale’s brother’s house and helped him and his family move into a new home. We had a wonderful short visit with his family and then left to pick up another milking goat from a nearby family owned farm.
Then, we went by to see a church that someone GAVE us! Yeah, we were given a CHURCH!! It’s the most amazing church and they’ve given us the building to move to our property. The problem is, how do you move a church that is located three hours from your house? One plank at a time.
So, after Rachael’s wedding we’ll be moving a church one plank at a time till we get the whole church here. The problem is we don’t have heavy equipment and a bunch of other things you need to move a building. So, we’re praying for all that to come. You know the saying, if it’s God’s will it’s His bill :). So, we’ll see how He helps us work things out. If you’ve got any suggestions let me know! The church is in Lynchburg, VA.
Well I’ve got to get back to work! Today we’re going to help a dear friend get ready for her wedding this weekend.
Next Wednesday I’m posting a video blog of our five daughters talking about discipline when they were growing up.
The next week I’m going to be offering a Marriage conference call that I’ll be doing in May!
And, if any of you are speakers or writers I’m leading a workshop at the Proverbs 31 ministries, She Speaks Conference this summer. You should sign up! We could meet for coffee or lunch while we’re there!
Have a blessed weekend and no matter how busy you are- remember who you are in Christ everywhere you go. Love the people you meet, minister and pray for them, speak into their life the power of Jesus!
