The Blessings of the Lord

How awesome it was to be in church today. We had a wonderful service, the praise and worship was great and the Lord was with us in each service. We had a Gideon representative in our service this morning and he gave a wonderful report. He said that the Gideons around the world places a testament somewhere in the world every time your heart beats! Wouldn't it be great if each time our heart beats someone gives their life to the Lord?

I am seriously concerned about the state of the church in America. We enjoy the blessings of the Lord in this country, but we are not doing what God has called us to do. We get so caught up in our programs that we get our focus off of the Great Commission. Jesus longs to see people saved (it is not His will that any should perish). My prayer is that God's people will get a burden for the lost around us. God is calling His church back to prayer and intercession for the lost. Let's get busy seeing souls saved in the House of God. Lord, send revival among Your people and let it begin with me!

Pastor Appreciation

Last Sunday was pastor appreciation at the church. We feel so honored to pastor such a wonderful group of people. It is our privilege to be apart of each of their lives. Sunday was a wonderful day and what love abounded in the service for us. I think I pastor the best people in the Christian world. This is not to say that we don't have our challenges, but God is so good to us that He helps us get through them all.

I can not wait to fire up the new barbeque grill this weekend and give it a try. It is one beautiful piece of equipment! The love offering was wonderful and a great blessing for us. Pastor Krieger and Pastor Jim did a wonderful job preaching the morning and evening service. Although I have a lot of "preach" in me for this weekend. I can't wait to deliver the message God has laid on my heart this weekend.

Please keep us in prayer as we begin our remodeling project next week! I know that it is going to look absolutely beautiful when we finish. Please pray that God will continue to provide the finances we need to complete the project. May God richly bless you is our prayer.
