Oh, Happy Day!!

I’ve had a few concerns sent my way, “wondering where I’ve been”. Heidi thanks for your little song….it seems all the musical genes in our family went to you!

I’m still here and still blogging it’s just been a bit hectic lately. Since June we have hosted 280 North Americans on short-term mission trips. We also had various parties living with us through this time. The result…a bit weary in body but jazzed at all the Lord has done. The really, really cool part of it all is that close to 10,000 people now call Jesus Lord! And we still have 2 more teams coming!!!!

Oh what a Happy Day it is for all those that just two months ago were living a life of hopelessness and despair. "Oh Happy Day"....come on Heidi sing along!!!

Due to my tech challenges,the song is in the post below.........

Praise the Lord! May those 10,000 shout the Word to thousands more!

Hey Michelle, I just wanted to say thanks again SOOO much to you and Rich for allowing Matt and I to come out to visit. I hope we were more of a help than a nuisance! I had so much fun and I know Matthew did too! Hopefully I can come back next year! I love you all so much and miss you tons! Give the kids my love. :)
