This post is being written to thank a couple of specific groups of people:
1. The mission team of Trinity Baptist Church from Wellston, Oklahoma- This group so graciously (and at the last minute) included our family into their mission trip by hanging the sheetrock in our new addition to our house. There is no way Eric could have done it all by himself, and we are so thankful to them for their willingness to serve our family in this way.
2. The WMU of New Zion Baptist Church in Benton, KY- This group of ladies worked so hard to make such cute pillowcase dresses for us to give to the little girls here on the reservation. They were definitely a hit too! We passed out 80 dresses in 1 day!! (and they just sent us some more!) Thanks ladies!!
3. The individuals who gave so generously towards getting a van- We cannot say thank you enough to those who gave. God totally blew our mind with this whole ordeal!! We thought we were going to get an older 15 passenger van to transport individuals back and forth to church. However, that fell through because God had something better in store. We were able to get a 19 passenger minibus!!! It is several years newer and has about 100,000 miles less on it!! We are so excited to get to use this for our ministry! That is 19 more people that we can transport to church to hear the Gospel!!!
4. The youth of First Missionary Baptist Church in Benton, KY and Paul Wilkerson- These individuals worked hard all year to raise money to pay for 6 of our youth to go to Crossings (church camp) at Jonathan Creek. This past week was so amazing getting to see our girls experience so many things for the first time. It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience for them. I believe it was life-changing for all of them, but it changed the eternity of one of them forever!! We are so thankful to you guys for all your hard work raising the funds for this amazing week!! (I plan to write a separate blog post just for this week so check back soon.)
