We’re on the move….

Tonight we’re “camped” out at the location of our very first Sower Project – Faith Christain School – Vienna, GA (October 2004). We’re only here for two nights – we wanted to say hello to the staff and students here, plus we have an added bonus of getting to see some Sower friends that worked here in April.
Over this past weekend we visited with friends in Albany, GA and had a good weekend of catching up and eating too much! Lizzie fits in their driveway, so that worked out well. Today we worshiped at Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany. If you’ve seen the movie – Facing the Giants – this is the church that produced it. Our friends, the Gahagans, were part of some of the crowd scenes and their boys were part of the teams. See the movie if you get a chance – it’s very well done. And the service this morning was excellent. The pastor was really preaching to me!

But of course, the main event in our lives this past week was leaving our winter home at Teen Challenge. It was very hard to say good-bye to our friends there – and of course to say good-bye to the boys – many of whom will have graduated by the time we return in November (yes, it looks like we’ll be back there next winter so Gary can actually do the job he was supposed to do this winter – the A/C and heat in the new Family Life Center). I expected to be weeping as we left, but God gave me a real peace about our departure. I was able to share with the boys before I left – and we were also able to collect lots and lots of hugs. These are the verses that I left with the boys…..Ephesians 1:15-19

For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know
1. the hope to which he has called you,
2. the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and
3. his incomparably great power for us who believe.

And I hope they pray the same for me.
I miss them already.


By Thursday we’ll be at our next project in Waynesboro, GA. More details to follow!
