End of the summer

What should inspire us:
     * The wonder of God
     * The will of God
     * The miracle of God
     *The work of God

Psalm 16:8-11  I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy one to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in my presence is fullness of joy at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

       This summer we had some visitors to our church. One reason was because my husband had to go to India for work. Then some passing through on vacation. It was a bit weird to not have him preaching( even though I am usually in the class with the kids.) I praise the Lord for the family who came and helped fill my husbands spot. I think what was even better was the our group really enjoyed them. Bro. Pierce and his wife are missionaries for the military and also help small churches in their new ministry.  I loved that his wife played the piano and sang! My girls also made a new friend with their daughter.
    I have realized how different it is to have your own church and to be a part of one. What I mean is , we are in charge of everything from unlocking the church, collecting the offering, bringing food, making the bulletins, teaching kids class and nursery at the same time. We have not been able to visit other churches lately so it was nice to have a guest preacher. Occasionally we get some missionaries that my husband went to school with come visit us. Also we were able to attend a missions conference in Daly city.
Our friends from Central Valley Baptist Church came to visit as they began their summer vacation and introduced their ministry F.I.T. which helps get men off their addictions and  hindrance's in their life.  They shared how they lived, this family serves these men daily! And they live on the same property as them!. Now that is serving the Lord. They have a great ministry helping men get their life back in order using the BIBLE not some worldly therapeutic way. That may help some times but God works a lot better.  If you would like to know more you can go to www.FITMINISTRY.ORG

   It is always great to see the Vong family. They are missionaries to Cambodia, South East Asia.  They are dedicated and excited to go back to where they are from to help spread the gospel to their people. Their story is amazing if you would like to hear more go to

  1. It must be hard for you to always have to be the givers. We tend to take for granted all that our pastors and their families give to us. God bless you with great JOY as you continue to serve the Lord. Thank you for your comment at my blog and for your prayers. God is doing good things in our family. You know how it is when you clean out a closet...sometimes there is a big mess before you get it all put away nicely. Also, oftentimes we find things that we didn't know were hidden there. Hope you have a good day and thank you again for your visit.
