This past weekend was quite busy we went to morning church then drove an hour though corn fields to a church way out in the fields of Carmi, Illinois. Proceeding the afternoon church visit, we drove to another church to perform for the night service. We then sat down with the church to eat pizza and fellowship
We started a new set of fairs today, Edwards County and Laurence county. Today Sarah and I had Grace Black, Abigail Perry, Graydon Gerandale, Ky Beyer and Katie Trapp.
Les Bice had Venson Chapman, Josh Babb, Eva Harper, Carolyn Gregoire, and Alana Wiggins.
The team did a lot of surveys while sharing the Gospel. (Which is the whole purpose of the surveys). Everyone is in good spirits, but have had their struggles also. We do praise the Lord regardless because we know for the team to be able to see where they struggle God tends to allow struggle so that we see where we need work!
“So this summer has been amazing so far. I’m so excited to see what God has in store for the rest of our time here. I’ve definitely grown so much in the Lord in the time we’ve been here. I’ve been getting so much needed, but not wanted, lessons in patience. And I’ve been learning in my devotions about God’s amazing love for us. I’m falling so in love with God, it’s crazy. I’m so thankful God is using me to be His hands and feet to share His amazing love that I’ve been learning about.” Abigail Perry
“I was always one of those kids that grew up in church; which is a good thing, and I’m thankful. I was a little disappointed not to have a life-changing testimony, but now I realize that God gave me a Christian childhood so I could show Jesus to those that didn’t know Him. I don’t have any regrets about my past, so I’m free to let Him have my life completely. This summer had been such a great opportunity to let people know of the freedom they can have through Jesus Christ. I want everyone to know of the of eternal life and of God’s unconditional love. Psalms 63:3 ‘Your unfailing love is better than life itself; oh how I praise you!’ – Grace Black
