June 14, 2009

Well, one week down, one week left to go! I can't thank you enough for your prayers for Jonathan last week while we were at Jr. Camp. It was a wonderful week! He did amazingly well all week at Jr. Camp. He only had a couple of break downs all week, compared to a couple of break downs every day last year. I will tell you more details later when I have more time to write, but I wanted you to know how much your prayers carried us through this past week.

I am asking you again to pray for us this coming week as we leave first thing tomorrow morning for Clarion Choir Tour to Birmingham, AL. We are packed and ready to go again. This will be another new experience for Jonathan, so please pray for his ability to handle all that will happen this week. We will be up early every day, doing VBS in the morning, concerts for nursing homes, homeless shelters, and shelters for battered women and children, working with Habitat for Humanity and site seeing every afternoon/evening. These will be full and very busy days for us. Pray for strength, rest, and safety for us. We will return on Sat. evening. Our home concert will be Sunday evening, June 21. You are welcome to join us as 6:00 pm in the Sanctuary at First Baptist Dallas to hear the choir sing and share about the trip. If you are unable to come, you can watch the service live on line at Select the View/Listen to Service.

Thank you so much for bathing us in prayer this week. We will need every one of them! You are such wonderful and faithful friends. We studied this passage this morning in church and it made me think of how blessed we have been to have such a faithful band of friends to walk with us and support us these past 4 1/2 years. You have been our strength and encouragement and continue to be so even today. We love you all.

Ecc. 4:9-12 - Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
