June 2013 Ministry Update

We just had a most refreshing Staff Retreat last week! Now I’m about to embark in a couple of weeks of intense ministry and travel. I have briefly outlined it all in the attached Update. Please be praying for me as I minister to various groups and individuals. I covet your prayers on my behalf!

Please let me know how I can be praying for you!

May 2013 Ministry Update

Happy Summer!

I hope you had a restful and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend!

Summer has definitely kicked in around here. We have many things on our calendar for the upcoming months. Here are a few of them in my attached update.  (more…)

June 2012 Ministry Update

I love summer around here because of everything that happens. We even have an unexpected trip planned to New Orleans now! I’m excited about the ministry we get to do there, with youth and another local ministry that is there. I’ve never been to New Orleans, so this will be a new experience for me! I am looking forward to trying a famed beignet, too.

India is only a month out! I have a little team going with me, and I am excited about them experiencing India. If you would like to give towards the trip, the girls, or pray for us you can sign up here:  (more…)

May 2012 Ministry Update

May has been a good month! I hope it has been good for you too!

At the beginning of the month, I spent a morning with the MOPS (Mothers Of PreSchoolers) sharing with them about my little girls in India. I got to spend time with my family and some friends in Illinois this month, which was such a blessing. We’ve also been doing a lot of prep work around the office for our new staff member (Dave Johnston) and his family to move to Knoxville from South Dakota. We have two interns who will be with us for the summer, and our Staff Retreat is coming up very soon! I love the summer months around here – always so full of people and activity. (more…)

Listening to God

Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I do have an excuse though… we had our ministry staff retreat last week. So I definitely had my hands full helping out as much as I could to get things ready.

And what a staff retreat it was! It is always good to get together with everyone, catch up, share life. It always proves to be an encouraging time, as well as challenging. God spoke in some awesome ways this year. He told us through two separate people who spoke into us that a break-through is coming! (One used the text from 2 Samuel 5:20, the other used 1 Chronicles 14:11 – the story of David and Baal Perazim.) The FCA chaplain from UT spoke to us another day, and God told him to tell us to “Get Ready!” We were also reminded that we do not need to find the words to speak – that sometimes silence is ok. These were all very timely words of encouragement to our staff. We had times of prayer for each other as well, that were also encouraging. (more…)
