Sitting with a young couple enjoying their precious baby boy. A teenager plops on the grass beside us. "This man loves the Lord" remarked the husband. The teenager looked at me and quickly replied, "Ah, my friend here loves the Lord -- and I love him for it." The sincerity rings in his voice.
Without a camera to capture these priceless moments, this is a glimpse of our weekend with Gospel Lighthouse Church, located on the Ontario shore of Lake Erie. We were so abundantly blessed by the spiritual eagerness, warm fellowship, and generous hospitality of these dear friends. (We miss you all!!!)
And since Bethany did take some pictures of the weekend I can't complete a post without a few of her great shots...
We're thankful for one of our smoothest boarder crossings ever. An answer to prayer as we were tight on time!
Getting close to the waves of Lake Erie.
Daddy sharing the 'Family Life Seminar'. Often during his teaching sessions we older children are involved with a companion children's ministry, so are unable to hear him. This weekend was a real treat for us as we were able to listen to all four sessions. I was personally challenged to hear the principles that were shared -- and once again reminded how thankful I am for the commitments my parents have made over the years.
Note: The Lord also provided an amazing answer to prayer over the weekend. We're still working on the final details to share with you, so stay tuned...
