Turning another page...

“Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. You alone are the Lord…You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.”

“And because the gracious hand of my God was upon me….”
I am so thrilled to ask you guys to pray for David and I as the Lord has made a revelation in our lives very clear. Two Sundays ago, David submitted to God’s calling of full-time ministry for his life. We have been praying about this decision and our Lord has made it very clear to us that this is what He wants. We ask you for prayer as we seek Him for the next steps in this venture. David is planning on starting seminary in the winter/spring semester. He is thinking, as of now, to take distance learning classes through Liberty University. We are praying for our eyes to be open to exactly what God wants. We are trusting the Lord for we know “Because of [His] great compassion [he] did not abandon them…they lacked nothing…” What he has told us to do, He will finish. “God put it into [our] hearts” and now Nehemiah’s words echo “Don’t be afraid…Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”

“The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start….”

Thank you for your prayers! This begins a new season in our lives…which we look upon with a big smile…how excited our hearts truly are!! We love you guys!

We've all known that God has his hand on you both and that you will do great things for Him. The neat thing is that you aren't waiting to complete a program or get another degree to start serving. For you, this is just a natural progression of what you are already doing. Our prayer is that God will guide you and make your path clear and straight.
