Sharing with Churches
We were given the opportunity of sharing at 5 different churches. Some of them we gave full sermons (Scary) and a couple we just did a quick presentation at. Why do I say scary? Well I dislike getting up front to speak to people. I get all nervous, my voice shakes and well I feel like my brain just stops working (thank goodness for notes). But in the end, God has blessed us. I have been told by many that our sharing has blessed them or inspired them, but I can only boast how it has changed my life. God has been working through our sermon to remind me every day that LOVE is what matters the most. From what I have learned in my worship times and other studies, is that GOD = LOVE. Thus God is what matters most. I need him every day in my life. Chris has shared with me how he is feeling the same way. So I want to thank you all for changing our lives. We have put ourselves out there to share with you that each one of you has a mission to do being a disciple of Christ, but even that mission doesn't matter if you don't have LOVE (GOD). We look forward to returning to those churches we shared at and reconnecting with many of you next summer.
Sharing at Camp Meetings
Three camp meetings were scheduled for this summer. We shared a 10 min presentation at Minnesota Camp Meeting about Bolivia and our transition to Guyana. We then set up a booth at both the Upper Columbia Camp Meeting in Spangle, Wa and the Soquel Camp Meeting in Central California. Both places, Chris and I traded off in talking with people and sharing the ministry with those who were interested. God leads when he is allowed to. Many different contacts were made that God may use in the future of this mission. One big thing that we were able to accomplish was to obtain our HAM (Amateur Radio) licenses at the Soquel Camp Meeting. We are officially allowed to talk on the airwaves. let us know if you are a HAM radio operator and we would love to connect with you on the airwaves. Our call signs are: Chris: KI7GIU Crystal: KI7GIT. We hope in that next summer we may be able to visit or share again at these camp meetings as God leads.
Sharing with you our Supporters
We want to say that we have been so blessed. We have been given the opportunity to sit down one-on-one with many of the people who pray for us, support us financially, friends, family and those just following our adventures. God has really strengthened so many relationships this summer that it is sad to leave here soon. But knowing that we will be able to stay in contact over email, facebook and Skype gives us less pain. We are looking forward to sharing again with more people next summer.
