|First part of the Judson mission team made it to Bozeman!|
At Hyalite Canyon
This past week has been a crazy God blessed one. Sunday at church there were two baptisms and a sweet six year old boy prayed to receive Christ after Sunday School. It is so sweet to talk with little children and see them hear and respond to the Gospel message! Their faith and trust in Him often far surpasses those who are much older. Pastor also said there was more people in service than there has been in a year and a half, so we are praising Him and praying they will return again and get plugged in and that we can disciple them.
Tuesday the Pastor and his family and I road tripped to Billings (about two hours each way) to pick up some ministry materials for a week of camp later in the summer and got to stop at one of two Cracker Barrell's in the state... woo hoo! Then that afternoon at the Kickball Club ministry we had a ton of children come out and play and we did a devotion on how His light always overpowers the darkness and just loved on the kids and had a great time!

Wednesday, we (the Pastor's wife Misty and Jennifer who just moved here from Kentucky and I) had a great time of fellowship with a couple ladies we met at the women's bible study we are attending this summer here in town. It is sweet to study the Word with others and I am continuing to pray about the relationships that will be formed through that time.
I also got to eat my first moose burger this week at the initial meeting for the adult kickball club I joined for the summer. A lot of my teammates are skiers in the winter and I am looking forward to getting to know them better throughout the season!
In preparation for VBS, we also have decided we can start a painting and prop making business. In the last few days, we have painted many signs as well as built a plane and hangar for the sanctuary since the theme is "Amazing Wonders Aviation: Discovering God's Awesome Power."

Please join us in praying for God to display Himself in big ways through this next week; that He would open the hearts of those we will be ministering to and that they would see Christ's love displayed in a tangible way. Also, please pray He would unite all of us serving together from both Kirkwood and the Judson mission team!
Also, please pray for all the Judson mission teams out this next week - so exciting seeing those willing to serve Him and take His name to the ends of the earth! There will be teams or individuals in the following locations from Judson that I know of over this next week: Montana, Knoxville, TN, Honduras, New York, Brazil and Kenya.
In the Bible study on Nehemiah Kelly Minter writes, "God stands to accomplish the impossible through us while too often we're content to settle for the explainable. The impossible requires taking time to listen for what He has put in our heart to do. It means believing that He will accomplish what He has spoken."
"If God is for us, who can be against us?" - Romans 8:31
So grateful for those who have been such an example to me of what it means to step out in faith and follow Him.
It will be awesome to come back after this next week and give Him all the glory as He accomplishes His purpose each day!
