Fun Fun!!!

Sorry that I am just now getting to write about last weekend but we do not have internet at our house so it is a little difficult to blog sometimes. We had a great time in Gastonia this past weekend! It was very busy but full of fun things! We got there late Thursday night then Friday we hung out with the family. Uncle Phil, Aunt Ginger, Emily, Elizabeth and Katie came from Virginia for the weekend too! We spent most of the day at Paw Paw and Maw Maw's house then Friday night we went to the Relay for Life at a local school. That was a very special time. Saturday our family held a party for us at Paw Paw's. It was great to see friends and family that we haven't seen in a while and to see some people that I hadn't ever met. There was lots of food and great company. We were very blessed by the gifts of cards, letters, and money. We want to thank all of you who got a chance to come and those who gave. It is a great blessing to be encouraged and to know that there are people praying for us. Sunday morning we went to our brother-in-law's church Foundation of Freedom Ministries. Then spent more time with family that afternoon. Sunday night we got an opportunity to speak to the youth at South Point Baptist Church in Belmont. AJ Main is the youth pastor there. AJ was George's youth pastor for some years. We were able to share about our future ministry in Honduras. We pray that we will eventually have a chance to minister with the people of South Point in Honduras. We met some really solid people and appreciate their encouragement. God really blessed us during our time in Gastonia. We are thankful for our family there and the new people that we got to meet.
I am still learning things about how to work this blog but we would like to hear from you either by comments on the blog or by email. Well we hope you have a great night!

  1. We had such an amazing time as well last weekend - spending time with our family always humbles me more and more - how blessed we are!! Saying goodbye to you and your family was hard for all of us, but also a very proud moment for me. To see the work of the Lord in your lives is amazing to see. I put my trust in the Lord and know that you both are following his will and that he will take care of you! All my love to you, Georgie and my precious little Elias! I will follow this closely for any updates! ~emily
