Holy Spirit Leading
In the wave of change going through the church those of us that are remaining are leaning in on the Lord. We are also leaning in on each other; stepping up and filling in, in whatever capacity we can. It has been a great blessing to see people stepping up and learning new things to ensure everything gets done.
Small groups have started back up, on Sunday mornings, during the Sunday school hour. Brother Randy, Brother Freed, and Brother Charlie are leading the groups.
We had the pleasure of hearing form Brother Joseph Rich about his first trip to Zambia. It was such a great blessing to hear how the Lord lead him to Zambia, what took place while he was there, and even the provisions for him after he came back to the US. He is planning a trip back to Zambia in September or October, this year, to continue to move forward in what the Lord has given him to do. And we are so excited to hear more form him after he has retuned.
A friend, and brother in Christ, Matthew Richerzhagen, was in a horrible car accident that should have ended his life. Matthew arrived at the hospital unconscious and almost dead. As soon as we heard of the accident, a day latter, we began to pray for his recovery and as of today, he is at home recovering and praising the Lord in his trial. We know that the Lord is in control of all things, even the trials we go through. We are so thankful that the Lord answered all of our prayers, and we are so excited to hear more answers to prayer as he continues to heal.
The Lord has proven, again, just how good he is to us! We have a small trial facing us now, but the Lord will get us through. God is so good all the time.
