We were especially encouraged by our morning concerts for several county senior groups. While we greatly enjoy being in churches and fellowshipping with other believers, we also count it a privilege to share for a wider audience where a large percentage are un-churched. We pray many seeds were planted for the gospel!
But in addition to sharing at these events, we had a pleasant surprise! One of the senior groups gave us a gift certificate to the "Cracker Barrel" restaurant. Now, many of you have been asking what everyday life is like for our family. Well, one of the quirks of having a large family is that we rarely, rarely go out to eat. So this was actually the first time most of us had ever been to the Cracker Barrel restaurant. It was a very special evening!
We had fun browsing their gift shop while we waited for our meal.
Hannah likes to discover wacky lollipops ever since the Musical!
As we were browsing, I had the opportunity to visit with one of the restaurant staff who had many questions about our family. It was a great opportunity to share Jesus Christ. In visiting with her, I learned that she was a believer and endeavoring to raise her two daughters to love the Lord. We had a great conversation. As we left, she gave me a huge hug and said, "This is no accident. God ordained that we should meet like this! Thank you!"
A good reminder that wherever we go, we are testifying of Christ!
