Last Sunday, I...

Definitely had fun... we went to a meeting in Taylor, Tx with pastor Thomas Cordova. Some of the pics are a little fuzzy, but, you get the basic gist of what's going on, eh?

Family Day...

So after we came back from pastor's school, we took last Saturday and went on a family outing and went hiking.

Our 'new' vehicle, the Ford Expedition (a huge answer to prayer)!

believe it or not, you can find greenery in texas (at least in the spring)...

Talley ho, mates!

"the bros."

"the bridge that spans a thousand rivers"... NOT!

what a bummer, I know... oh wait... :)

My favorite 8 year old sister... (at least 4 now) :)

Yeah, who would have thunk it? a waterfall?

Want great photos? go outdoors.

Catching, minnows, frogs, and other assorted creatures!

And a grand meal at Cracker Barrel to top off a near perfect day!

Pastor's School 2009

Just got back from Hammond, Indiana! Had a wonderful time of great preaching, awesome fellowship, and renewing of the spirit. The conference theme was "going the distance", and every aspect of it was a help and an encouragement. Praise the Lord. Enjoy some of the pictures, and let me know what you think!

The young people, along with the adult choir and the teen choir sang "Lord I believe in you". Great song.

On the steps of the federal building, which the First Baptist Church, after much work, was finally able to purchase. Halelujah!

Standing solo...

Here's Bro. Steve Shrine with the adult choir singing "I'm amazed". Just unbelievable.

Toward the end of the week, Matt began to become really attached to Jonathan, and it all started with balancing a matchbox car on his head!

Brothers in christ!

The view from the east end of the balcony....

I wonder who this is... :)

Here's myself with Matt & Mark, two of the most sold-out guys in America!

Little Matt and baby Emily...(with Jon and Sharon, of course...)

Myself and Dr.. Frank Garlock... "Mr. Music".

Bro. Schaap closes out the last session.

Wow, look out, Toby Mac! :) just joshing...

At our church we've got great fellowship...

And wild preaching... :)

My Dad's military ministry has a weekly Bible study on thursdays that I was able to attend this time...

Bro. Chavez led it this week while Dad's travelling up north preaching some meetings.
Well, ya'll, the Lord is good. Even when I'm sick with something that feels like the Lord is still good. :) even when the internet is down (sniff), He's still good. let the redeemed of the Lord say so! AMEN! That's good preachin', brother. :)
so, anyway, we're doing well; even though my internet connection doesn't allow me to post pics or videos ar anything like that. bummer huh? I've been sick as a dog for about a week and a half... but I think the worst of it is over, so, whew! But I've been able to get some studying done during the down time, so I suppose it could be a blessing in discuise, eh?
as I write this Jonathan and I are driving toward amarillo, TX for the weekend meeting with my family. Then it's off to Hammond, Indiana for Pastor's School! praise God, this time we were able to secure a week in the clear so that we could attend. I pray it'll be a blessing, as I know it will be.
Well, better run; I'll still be trying to post pics & stuff as I go; look for more updates soon to come!
