To the left is the homepage picture of the Lewistown Alliance Church who were so kind to host us this weekend. The pastoring duo of Steve and Kristi Diehl were our first "human" contact in our application to the C&MA and from the moment we met them were encouragements to us. Not only did that continue this weekend but the church that meets in the building to the left also encouraged us greatly.
It was almost not to be though because we woke up Saturday to....snow.....yes snow. This is the most snow we've had here in our four winters and it seems to be when we are trying to do something or go somewhere. We made it to Lewistown though and were encouraged....
We were encouraged that Steve and Kristi could actually find joy in our children (our kids can occasionally be to much of a good thing---they get the "too much" from me and the "good thing" from Anna), and that they opened their home to us.
We were encouraged by the opportunity to speak.
We were encouraged by the openness of the congregation to us.
We were encouraged by their prayer for us
We were encouraged by the interest in our calling.
Anna and I appreciate you prayers for us and we experienced those prayers for safety as we traveled this weekend. Continue to keep us in your prayers and we continue to seek to become closer disciples of Him
