This particular blog entry is to signify the takeover of this blog by Olivia Parsons:)
A new blog entry is painfully overdue, so this is it! I don't really know how to blog correctly...but this will have to do!
7/21 - 7/29
We almost had a family reunion Saturday night in West Virginia at Mt. Moriah Church! The Lord came by our way that night and we enjoyed it! The next morning, we were able to be at Salt Petre Christian Baptist Church in Fort Gay,WV. The Lord was faithful and was there in that service as well.
And Sunday night through Friday night we had a great time in Wheelersburg, OH at the Christian Baptist Campmeeting! Two souls saved, I believe, and lots of others touched! Preaching by Pastor Paul Hagen , Dr. Cal Ray Evans, and Bro. Brian Baer M.A .
The youth set a good example, came to the altars, and got closer to the Lord daily! We need a whole lot more youth that will do that.
It was good to meet new friends and to hear young and old testify of God's faithfulness and their love for Him.
Then came the wierdest scheduling problem we'd ever had! Mom got a call while we were on the road and had a bad reception and had a hard time understanding the man calling. When she tried to call back, the phone number was disconnected. The name of the church that he gave her...as far as we know... doesn't exist! But Brother Roy Kilgore just happened to be having a Saturday night service and kindly invited us to sing at his church, Highest Praise Pentecostal Church.
Sunday morning we sang at the Freewill Baptist Church in Bucyrus, OH and my favorite part of the service was the testimonies given by several people in the congregation. And finally, our last service of the trip was at Sandhill FWB Church in Sandusky, OH. The Lord orchLestrated that service so well. The theme of that service was to trust the Lord! Pastor Garry Sorrell listened to the Holy Spirit and preached just the message we needed! We are supposed to tell the Lord that we need a miracle, and then say " Lord, whatever you want to do in this situation, I'll accept it. God is our Father, He doesn't like to see us hurting. He wants to help us! But we can't tell Him what He needs to do. We just have to trust Him to do what is best for us.( Sometimes that's easier said than done.) A purse party erupted after the service and the girls enjoyed that!!!!
We are now home, and enjoying it!!! Thank you everyone for your prayers, support, and friendship!
God Bless you,
