~Our Mission Services in Missouri~

Thank you for all your prayers for our family as we have been traveling.  God has given us a safe journey so far.  We are now in Phoenix, AZ, with my dear in-laws, and now I can post the pics from our Mission services to Missouri.
~Before we left home Darla took Sarah out to Panera Bread for her birthday.~

~I made some goodies to bring to my in-laws in AZ.~
~Some cute little "Cup Muffs" (Sleeves) that Kimberly made to give to her friends and family.~

 ~On the way to Ava, MO we saw a SAD fire and the firetrucks blocked our way. 
Thankfully, it looked like it was an antique store, so hopefully no one got hurt.  Tho it is sad about the ANTIQUES someone could have enjoyed. :-( ~
 ~Saturday evening we got to Gaylerd and Marlene Miller's house.
Here's Abigail hugging Mrs. Miller.~

Just beautiful, spiritually and physically (landscape)! Hi, Heather. I found your blog from Pink Parsonage blog list many months ago. My heart is very aligned with the way their (Rick and Karen) and your family live for Christ. I live in NYC, and the oppression is HUGE. However, it seems (prayer is ongoing but we have peace) God is leading us to live near our younger daughter and her family in Mobile, AL soon! They attend Gospel Lighthouse Holiness Church (I do not know what missions they are supporting).

Your love for Christ as a family has given much needed encouragement to my heart. If I tell you great wickedness surrounds us living here it would not be an understatement. Thankfully, our two daughters love the Lord. One lives, as stated, in Alabama. The other (an army wife) currently resides in Michigan. We have a 20 year old autistic son who loves God, but his needs are so great he attends a special-needs-only school. He has surpassed what all the tests have shown. Not academically, but his 'outreach' way of relating. Praise God! God is using our family in the smallest of ways....'small' to us. But I am sure big to Him.

Again...so glad to see answered prayer for your safe travels.

In Him,
Mrs. K.

Thank you so much, Mrs. K, for your very nice comment. Sorry, it took me so long to respond. I was traveling and my phone wouldn't let me respond, so I had to wait until I could use my computer. :-) Your words regarding my blog and our family were so kind! Thank you! I am so glad that you and your family are serving Jesus and shining for Him. Praise God for His help to your special son. I am glad that God is using your family for Him. Isn't it humbling to be used of God, even in the smallest of ways? May God continue to bless and encourage you and give you a wonderful 2017 in Him!!
