Wow… It has been a long time since the last time I blogged. In fact, it has been almost a year! Where has the time gone? Well, a lot has happened over the last year. To start, the United States is now in the worst Constitutional crisis since its birth. We have a man occupying the office of the President of the United States who refuses to prove he is qualified. In addition to that, he and his friends are intent on rewriting the history of the United States in an effort to remove the Christian heritage of this nation. But that is all old news. We all know that Obama is set on the destruction of the United States. But, this is not a political post. This is an update on our ministry and our family. Many of you know we have move to another church. There has been much rumor surrounding our leaving the old church. The Lord led us in this decision. There are times when the Lord leads us in something and we obey right away. This is how we should react. Then there are times when the Lord leads and we do not obey right away. Sadly, this was us. We did not obey as quickly as we should. Looking back, I can see where the Lord has been leading us to make this move for about two years. In the end, the Lord showed us a lot of things to prove to us that we should move. In a sense, it was as though the Lord had to take us to the woodshed to show us His will for our lives. But, ultimately, we obeyed. Now we are attending what must be the most wonderful church in the country. We are seeing people saved in almost every service. That, in itself, is a sign of a growing, vibrant, exciting church. Not only are we seeing people saved, but these people are growing in the Lord. These are not people who are saved this week and gone the next, these are people who are persisting and growing in the Lord. Being around people who are getting genuinely saved is a lot of fun and very exciting. What is even more exciting is being used by the Lord. For the last several years, I suppose since the Lord started showing us that it was time to move, our ministry has been hindered. Since moving and joining at LVBC, we have experienced a breath of fresh air. It is as though the Lord has breathed a new life, a new vitality in to us. So many things have happened so quickly, I have been simply amazed at how the Lord has blessed. For example, I finished a discipleship guide more than a year ago. When we arrived at LVBC, one thing we did was give a copy of it to our new pastor. Within a month or so, he was announcing that there would be a new converts class. The class is based on our discipleship guide. That was a tremendous blessing. Then he caught me and asked if I would be interested in teaching the class. Again, what a blessing! The Lord is using us! Want to hear about more blessings? The Lord is using me to preach. It has been a while since I preached and it was good to preach again. Then there is the most recent event. I spoke to a man from a printing ministry this past week and gave him a copy of the discipleship guide. He is interested in having the book translated for missionaries. Again, what a blessing! The Lord is going to use my work to help missionaries and nationals around the world. I would like to go on, but it is getting late. I hope you enjoyed this little update. If the Lord should continue to bless us the way He has been, there will be many more updates like this one to come.
