Our family was privileged to be a part of the Missions Conference at Lakeside Baptist Church in Virginia. I can’t say enough about the warm welcome we received from all the people at Lakeside. Thanks to Steven and Lauren for opening up their beautiful home to us by allowing us to stay the weekend with them. We were able to share our hearts and our ministry during the course of the weekend. Friday night we shared about Guatemala, its geography and culture, with different small groups as they rotated from missionary to missionary. I have to say that our research of Guatemala paid off and we learned a lot about our new home. We were so impressed by the willingness of people to pray for us and really care about what obstacles we are facing at this time. Bobby was able to share our story with Steven Hodges’ Sunday School class and again during the Sunday morning service. On Sunday night we had the privilege of being with the youth and wow they were so much fun! Taylor had an opportunity to share her testimony and what God is changing in her heart about leaving her life in the States behind.
We appreciate all the prayers and encouragement from the wonderful people at Lakeside. We left with full hearts and songs of joy on our lips. Thanks to all of you!
