April 2013 Ministry Update


Hello and Happy Spring!

I think that it is officially Spring weather throughout the U.S. now. Yay!

With summer so quickly approaching, we have much going on here at the Ministry. One thing that will consume most of my focus this summer is a trip back to India to see the girls! Let me know if you’re interested in coming along with me.

Also some great news – my car is fixed! And it wasn’t as bad as I originally thought! Thank you, Jesus!

Hezekiah and Studying – April 22 Devos


(This is an email devotional I sent out to the ladies in our small group.)

King Hezekiah made it his mission to help point the people of Judah back to God. He tore down the high places (of idolatry), reinstated the Passover celebration, cleansed the Temple, restored Temple worship, and organized the priests. And he started this when he was only 25!  (more…)

Comfort and Magic – April 2 Devos


The following is an email devotional I sent out to the ladies in our small group. 

Hey gorgeous gals!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!

Brad’s Easter message was so encouraging, wasn’t it? (If you missed it, it will be posted here soon: http://www.tworiverschurch.org/703611.ihtml.)

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the idea of living outside of our comfort zone. I had dinner the other night with Lynda… Lori and Michelle’s mom. As we conversed, Lynda made a small circle with her hands in front of her and called it the “comfort zone”… then pointed to an unseen point just up and to the right, and called it “where the ‘magic’ happens.” I decided to illustrate it – look at the picture:
