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.

Congratulations! I too feel that Preacher's quote is life changing! We miss you all, and can't wait to get to see you again. Caitlyn says hi to Zachary! :) We'll be praying for you.
