And there is no good reason..except that we've been wicked busy. My crazy husband decided to have two week long revivals within two weeks of each other. yes, I think I may float off to crazy land. But our first revival with pastor rick bucholtz was incredible. We had 32 in service the Sunday after he ended. It was breathtaking and such a confirmation that God is on the move and our labor is not in vain...so...to continue the momentum, John asked everyone he could think of if they could squeeze in a last minute revival, and Pastor Ralph Blanco accepted the challenge ha ha. And whats incredible about it all, is that; we've been trying to breakthrough into the Hispanic community since we moved here, but have had no luck. And pastor blanco is bilingual and has such a strong testimony, and then on top of THAT, John asked our home church for a last minute outreach team; but they had already obligated their bands to another church but could send a few guys and the church van...so...my persistent husband called every church around McMinnville to ask if we could borrow a few of their people for a two day shot. And Newport, beaverton, eugene, springfield, corvallis and medford stepped up!!! It was so overwhelming that these precious churches and men would drive nine hours one way to help us outreach and then leave 24 hours later for another 9 hour+ drive....what a true testimony of the spirit of God moving so powerfully in their lives.
We did a BBQ at an apartment complex on Friday night and several received Jesus, and then the next day they outreached and at lunch time we did another BBQ (whats an outreach without the obligatory hot dog BBQ??!) at another complex and several more were saved during the outreach and the fellowship...it was miraculous!! The following pics are from today's outreach. I adore the one of john looking at his sleepy Reagan, and the one of Reagan flashing a cheesy grin? That's her current pose for the camera..it kills me.
And isn't the one of Joe with Reagan just darling? I think he needs to hand it out to all the single ladies he meets...ha ha...but of course confirm that he's holding his friends daughter, and he doesn't have random children no one knows about...ANYWAYS! enjoy!!!!!!!!
