Heading Out

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
according to His abundant mercy
has begotten us again to a living hope..."
1 Peter 1:3

[Our church family 'sending us out']

Our home is a flurry of activity this morning. The guys are preparing the bus, loading box after box of food, CDs, and other items, while the girls are ironing clothes, packing necessary items, and working on the last minute cleaning.

Yes, it's that time again -- heading out. By this time on Sunday we'll be starting our first prison crusade with the We Care ministry, with many other services and opportunities to follow in the coming weeks.

We leave home, knowing that it is far beyond our abilities to bless, encourage, convict, and challenge the hearts of those the Lord puts across our paths. We are again reminded that without HIM, "we can do nothing". [John 15:5]

However, we serve the ONE Who has begotten us to a Living Hope. And it is HE Who goes before us. It is HE who does the work! Thank you in advance to each of you faithful readers who uphold our family before the Throne as we embark on the adventures ahead. We'll look forward to keeping you updated!


"I am the vine, you are the branches.
He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit;
for without Me you can do nothing."
--Jesus John 15:5
