On the Road Again


As I'm writing this, we're parked in a random Walmart parking lot somewhere in southern Wisconsin. Today we make the trek through Chicago for a service in Shipshewana, Indiana. [Any blog readers from that area?! We'd love to meet you tonight!]

This is a full week for our family -- in a span of 9 days we'll be sharing 12 services in 8 different states and covering 2,600 miles. And spun into the lively rhythm of each day is the opportunity to fellowship, share the gospel, and hear testimonies of what the Lord is doing in each area across the country.

And so often we see the Lord working mightily through a few faithful warriors. A single family who selflessly serves in their community year after year. A small church who trusts God against all odds. A dear couple with a vision to encourage families.

These seemingly small, individual seeds. But the Lord sees their faithfulness. And rewards it beyond any expectations as lives are touched and He is glorified. And somehow we're able to catch a glimpse of how God works through the simple faithfulness and service of His children.

And so we continue on our tour with encouragement and joy, knowing that the Lord is going before, preparing good works for us!

We appreciate your prayers as we travel the many miles ahead!

"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them."
Eph 2:10

Wow, you have quite some busy days ahead! I will surely be praying for you. I'm sure you'll face some challenges, but what a comfort to know God will be with you every moment of your journey. May your ministry be a blessing to others!

Also, I just have to say how special it was meeting you all at the Itasca Music Festival! Unfortunately my family didn't make it to your other concert, but I am so thankful for the opportunity I did have to meet you all. :)

With love,

Talitha
