God is doing some great things!!!

Wow!!!!  What an amazing weekend I had with the great people of Lifebridge Church in Madison, MS.   I was invited down there to speak and share with them about our missions work in Haiti and how we might partner together with them since they too have just begun getting involved in the ministry in Haiti.  What a blessing it was to spend a few days with such a great group of people that are passionate about making the name of Jesus known throughout the world.

It is so amazing to see how the hand of God moves in such sovereign ways to bring resources together for the furthering of His kingdom.  Two months ago, I didn’t even know where Madison Mississippi was, let alone who Lifebridge Church was.  Yet, by the way we connected and hung out over the weekend, you’d think we had known each other for years.  I’m so thankful that God brought us to partner together for the work in Haiti.  They are truly a blessing and I look forward to working with them for many years as the Lord allows.  They have already planned a trip in July and are planning another trip in November to bring a team down to do some construction and building for the addition to the orphanage.  We are blessed and privileged to work with them.

Here are some pictures from our weekend together…

From left to Right…Jim Fries – the leader of the Haiti Missions Team at Lifebridge Church, Philip Thurman – the conservative, no frills, by the book pastor…haha…no way.  This guy is radical for Jesus and not afraid to shake things up, and then myself – the conservative, no frills, by the book missionary…haha…I don’t think so.

The missions tables after the service – many people are starting to get more involved in the missions of the church…I love seeing that happen.  This church has a great mission strategy and the Lord is blessing their faithfulness.

My two new friends, Horatio and Montel.  They are kids from the ministry that the church has in Canton reaching out to underprivileged kids through tutoring and mentoring every Monday night.  This was their first time visiting the church.  They are very special guys and I pray God’s blessings on their lives.  The only problem is that they just would never stop talking…haha…I don’t think so
