Thanks from St. Louis

Thanks for all your prayers -- We are now all united in one place. Skip attended the orientation at Cov. Pres. Much to think about -- Calling -- it was a big wake up for him. Check out the school -

We live nearby Cov. Pres - Creve Coeur, East and north of the school. We worshiped at New City Fellowship (PCA) -- - it appears they are intentional about orphan care -- Their mission statement says -
Seeking first the kingdom means these types of ministries will mark us as the church. We will care for the widow, the orphan and the immigrant in our midst. It also means we will seek justice in marriage relationships, parenting responsibilities and work issues. God is concerned that his justice fill the earth, and that means justice both personally and socially. In his love and graciousness, these ministries are not the "calling" of a special few of God's people, but it is the privilege of all God's people to live such lives of service.

It has several ministries that we are interested in. Many different backgrounds and nationalities. Our kids are in School at Freedom School. Please check out the school --

Back From Dalton, GA -- Thank you Grace Pres. Church

Our family had a wonderful time of worshipping the Lord by helping a man dying of Liver Cancer fix up his home. Dalton, Ga is the carpet capital of the world. The gentleman had two sons age 10 and 11. The church offered to fix up his home to help his children financially when his home was sold at his death. He was expected to die in 2 months and hospice was called in while we were working on his home. Grace Pres.'s Pastor challenged us to show the love of Christ and not expect anything in return for our construction help. We also did VBS all week and had 20 to 40 Latino children come to our bible club event. We were so blessed to be able to serve as a family. During the week, we invited many people to the church's annual Fiesta event. We heard this week that 300 Latino people came to the church for the event and heard the gospel.

See for church information and their ministries.
