We were so excited that our son Chad was able to spend the weekend with us last weekend. Now our daughter Christie has flown in from California and will be staying with us two weeks. I was so excited to go and pick her up in Hickory, where her friend Rachael met us. It is nice to have her for sure..Not only will she be a help but it is just good seeing her...

Upside Down

It's been a week or more since our world has been turned upside down. While we were busy with the kids, mission trips, VBS and many other things, TC was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. Whew, I can hardly get those words out. Well, the doctors operated and feel strongly that they got it all so that is good. Currently, she is recuperating and getting better each day. To say this has been difficult is an understatement to say the least. The kids have been in daycare, which has helped a lot, and then we get the news that our daughter, Christie will be arriving next Tuesday. That will be a blessings for sure. I find it taxing to attempt to do all that needs done for the kids, the house, the wife, and the church. But, by God's Grace we will get through it.

A Faith for the Future

We have been very busy since we returned from Kentucky. Washing clothes and preparing for Sunday. TC was feeling better, to the point that she cleaned the house all day Saturday and then went to Walmart with all of us. Anyways, the pain returned with a vengeance and now she as been admitted into the hospital to have several test ran. With the duties of a pastor and a husband, now with 4 kids to raise, sometimes I wonder what we were thinking. However, that is not something that I should concern myself with because it is part of God's plan, and I don't question it...I just do it..That is tough but Faith must be dived into. Wow, with the current sermon series "A Faith Formed Future" we are talking about Encountering and Engaging Faith and also Encouraging Faith. We are starting the book of James in our SS class and I am leading the church through I Peter on Wednesday night. There is a lot of talk about Faith.

2014 Cranks KY VBS

What an incredible Cranks Creek VBS we had this year. We joined with another group from Ohio and a great time. We saw kids pray to receive Christ. We saw kids loved on. God brought this trip together. All praise to Him and him alone..

WBC 2014 VBS

We had an awesome VBS at our church this year. I heard many comment on the positive of this year's VBS which is pretty awesome. Everyone seemed to have a great time and we had two to pray and receive Christ.
