~IHC...all the way here in Colombia=)~

Today is the first day of IHC. I have no memory of the first year that our family went to IHC, but I was somewhere between the ages of 1 and 3. And from then on my family went every year we could. I think we only missed 2 or 3 years. When I was younger I would rather go to IHC than to have Christmas!!! Then after Phillip and I got married we attended IHC, getting to sing in the God's Bible School choir some of those years. The year of 1999 is when God called Phillip to pastor a church in Phoenix, AZ. Due to the distance and money, we didn't get to go to IHC some of those next 5 years, but LOVED it when we did get to go. 2005-2006 found us in Costa Rica studying Spanish, so again we were SADDENED to get to miss our beloved IHC. Now, we have been here in Colombia for 3 IHCs...but there's a HUGE blessing now...in that they live stream the services! YEA! What a JOY to still get to be a part of something that has been SO MUCH A PART OF ME...all the way over here in Colombia!!! God is Answering prayer and our computer which normally gets hot and shuts off every few minutes, has stayed on and we got to watch the first 2 services of IHC. YEA! PRAISE THE LORD!! (And Thank you to Felipe from our church here who spent parts of 2 of his days working on our computer!! Gracias Hermano!!) This week Phillip is visiting our other 2 churches in Colombia. So, please pray for him while he is gone. We are GLAD that God is helping us to be able to see IHC, for it would surely be a lonely week without our Daddy and no IHC services to see. God is awesome for answering our prayers!! Those of you who are close enough to attend IHC, enjoy it! We are praying for a great out-pouring of God's presence in these 3 days! Well, I must run, for IHC service is fixin' to start again and I don't want to miss a single minute! We are ENJOYING getting to see and hear these services! Thank you for praying for our internet and computer...God is helping!! =)

I have never been to IHC, but I am watching the evening service right now. Maybe next year, we can go for at least one day.

Thank the Lord for the technology that makes "being" in the services possible, from anywhere in the world.

We're enjoying it from home too! My husband was too busy for us to travel to Dayton this year. I think I met you at IHC a few years ago, when you were expecting your other little one!

Dearest Heather,
So glad you got to "be at IHC" via internet! Technology is WONDERFUL! We missed you LOTS... since I was there all alone much of this year, I REALLY missed you. Daryl got to sneak in late each evening after classes for the night services, so that was great! At least he got in some of it. I'm weary from IHC days,... but thankful for God's Presence SO real this year! God is Good! I love you and may call you tomorrow! Love your sis, Laura
P.S. I almost got teary eyed when Dad Sankey mentioned your name... Love ya! :)

I’m glad to hear that your computer was working for you. We weren’t able to attend the last service, but we were able to see it via the internet. I don’t know if you were able to see it via the internet, but they had a terrific service with people seeking the Lord. The alter was lined with about 10 chairs on either side of the alter, along with the front seats being used. What a wonderful time of victory. Before all of that, Bro. Sankey asked who was from where naming all of the states, that’s when he mentioned you all from Columbia, hoping that you was able to be looking in.
