PS -- And YES! My sore throat is completely healed and I was able to sing through every show this week. Praise the Lord!

We've also specifically prayed for good conversations with our crowds. Although a Branson show is usually a 'come and go' event (most people don't hang around and visit afterwards), we've seen small ways that God has given us a glimpse into our guests' hearts as we share.
For example, a lady shook hands with Mom yesterday after our show saying, "You sure have earned yourself a place in heaven for having all those kids." She seemed very shocked when Mom replied that nothing she could do would merit heaven, but it is only through Jesus Christ and His work on the cross that makes her right with God. We continue to pray for seeds that are sown each day!
As most of our advertising takes place in restaurants, we've been praying that we find favor with the staff and cooks of these establishments. We've seen amazing ways that this has been happening. Yesterday I got a call from a manager at IHOP saying that they'd missed our visit that morning and just wanted us to know that they love having us come! As these are people we interact with every day, it was such an encouragement to know they look forward to our visits. We're praying for more opportunities to share Christ with them!
Again, we thank you for your prayers. As we gather for family devotions each morning, we think of you all and thank the Lord for you. We know much of the effective work here and blessings that we're experiencing is due to your investment. Hopefully these short updates are an encouragement to you and help you know more specifics on how to pray! May the Lord be glorified!

Next Monday starts our first show. As we think ahead to the opportunities, we're often reminded of God's mighty work last year. People are still marveling at the number of people who came to that first-year show. It is really unexplainable except that people were praying and I know that includes many of you. We heard numerous times from you blog readers who prayed for us every morning and we cannot adequately express our gratefulness.

“God has given” :: “ Laurel ”
One who is diligent, trusting God for the victory.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:56-57
Happy 8th Birthday Nathanael!
