Chapter 12 – Update #8

Thank you for your prayers for our time of ministry to the women of Cornerstone Baptist Church! The women’s conference went very well. We had about 60 of the women who were signed up come and participate. We were also blessed by the presence of about 100 of the children who participated in VBS this week! The day was filled with praise & worship, teaching & small group discussions. Our team presented two praise songs that the women just LOVED! Even though we are not a “choir” team, I feel like we could have gone on a choir tour! The voices on my team blend beautifully together! It brought a tear to my eye! Our ladies had great discussions when we broke up in small groups. They were all able to give their testimonies as to how they came to know Jesus. We gave out bookmarkers that each team member decorated with their favorite verses. During one of our sessions, we heard the sound of resounding thunder! It was amazing!

We return today to Cornerstone today for their Sunday morning worship. Having been with the children & the women, we are excited to be worshipping together today with the whole church! It will be a great way to spend Father’s Day!

Our team would like to send special a special Father’s Day greetings to their dads!
