Our First Deputaion Services

This Sunday, March 21st, was a special day. Not only was it our 12th Anniversary but also our first deputation services. We began the morning out at Pine Grove Tabernacle with our friends and pastor Bro. Darwin Mowat and his wife Joan. What a beautiful way to begin our services. They were so warm and friendly. They even brought us Anniversary cards and Bro. Darwin prayed over us that God would bless our marriage, we felt right at home. They closed the service by having our family come forward and praying over us. We felt so blessed. Mrs. Joan is a wonderful cook and filled us with an awesome chicken dinner and a choice of pies. We appreciated everything. As for our first service there were a few bumps, starting with pictures disappering from our slide show before service but with some quike work Drew was able to correct that before we got started. Thank the Lord!
In the evening we were able to be with the Bible Methodist church family in Rock Lake. It was again nice to be surrounded by friendly, familiar faces. The kids did great but were feeling the long day. The Lord helped though the service and as we closed Bro. Titus blessed us with encouragement and prayer. It was wonderful to be able to talk with some I have know all my life but only get to see a few times a year. The words of encouragement were like gas in the tank-we left there feeling excited to keep going. We thank the Lord for His blessings in allowing us to have such a special start.
Next service is scheduled to be at Cedar Springs Pilgrim Bible Church on Easter Sunday night. We are looking forward to it.
