I'm excited to share these things for which I am thankful on this Thursday...
♥ Praising God that my precious nephew, Blake has been given the opportunity to travel with The Academy of Arts for the summer ministering through drama…not only is he willing, he is thrilled! I’m also thankful my sister and brother-in-law (after much prayer) have decided to let him go…(he’s only 14). They leave very early Saturday for South Carolina and he won’t return home until August 12th. Our whole family was together this past weekend for my niece’s birthday and also to say farewell to Blake . At one point in the evening, we all surrounded him and my husband prayed, asking for God’s blessing, provision, safety, and also for those who will be seeing these powerful plays. In addition, he prayed for his Mom, Dad and siblings who will miss him greatly. What a blessing to be able to do that as a family!
♥ Praising God that mid-morning YESTERDAY our Youth Pastor finally received word all the visas for a missions trip to Brazil were approved! 15 kids from our youth group and 4 adults leave THIS MORNING. Although it was literally down to the wire…we all know truly it was God’s perfect timing. (Another youth group that was to precede ours went through all the same steps our kids had, yet their visas were ultimately denied.) Can’t wait to see what God does through these kids!
♥ Praising God that this week, I learned of yet another co-worker who is interested in our office Bible Study. She’ll be joining us beginning with our next study!
May this Thursday find you thankful…
