Playing Catch up!!

Wow our life has really been changed in the last month. As many of you know we have been working in Natchez, MS for the last 2 years. We came to help out Victory Baptist Church. This church has seen its share of hard aches and trials. Our family has really been through the fire but Praise the Lord HE IS FAITHFUL. As of last month the Church voted Darren in as Pastor. Darren had been approached by several people over this last year asking if he would take over, every time Darren kept dismissing the idea. Then back in January several church members came and ask if we would really pray about becoming their pastor. Darren and I took several days to pray and fast and seek God's direction. Each time I prayed I was reminded about the Outstanding quote from Preacher Talley-"When you leave the place of promise, looking for the place of peace, you will end up in the place of problems." Wow that statement has changed my life. Thank you Pastor Talley.

Well we knew then that we were suppose to stay in Natchez. We already had to "WEED Out" but we have had some great services. We are a small church, but it is God that giveth the increase. Thank you all for praying for us. I it awesome to know we have such great friends.

Happy New Year to all. Sorry its a little late posting again but I have not had a minute to spare. We had a great Christmas in Virginia. It was so good to see my mom and brothers. We made some great memories. We were so glad to see all our friends at Hyles Baptist Church. Thank you so much for all the gifts for the kids and the love offering. It is always so encouraging to be around all of you. Thank you so much for all you do for our family. We truly are blessed with your friendship. So glad I got to hear Talley sing my favorite Christmas song. Great job.
Well we finally made it home last Tuesday around 4 a.m. It was the trip that never ends. Darren was sick all week but finally got over it.
The kids are back in school (Home) as of Monday. I am trying to do some extra fun things with them so it doesn't get boring for them. I am trying to get them started on piano lessons but really have no clue myself.

Visitors in Church

Last Sunday we had 6 visitors at church. Four were kids- and my kids we so excited to have more kids in Sunday School. We had a great time. It was such a blessing to see new faces. Since the church here is without a Pastor, Darren has been filling the pulpit and doing a great job. Satan is fighting but God is still on the Throne.

Chipmunk in Church

Last night before service started Zachary ran and said theirs a squirrel in the church office. We all went to see but all we found was its stash of pecans. Darren moved the couch and saw that it was a chipmunk. We didn't think to much about it until this morning. We all came to the church with Darren and Zachary went into the bathroom in the office and came out screaming- "I found the chipmunk!!!!" We all came to see and sure enough it was in the toilet. Darren was preaching last night that Christmas can be the saddest time for some people and the suicide rate is higher-well guess we saw our first victim of unhappiness!!!! Ha!

We got Snow!!

Last week when those states that should have gotten snow didn't----We did. In MS it rarely snows or even gets ice. It was mostly a wet mess but the kids managed to make a few snow balls.
