Yesterday was our last day at our church as pastor and his family. My husband stepped down as pastor to go into missions. We've been doing some deputation since March but haven't been able to do much with it since we had primary responsibility to the church my hubby pastored. It was emotional for us and for the people of the church as they are family to us and we love them very much. They hated to see us go but know that it is God's will for us to do this. Please pray for them as they begin to have preachers in to candidate for the position of pastor of Eagles View Baptist Church. God is faithful and He will provide just the right man for that church and for those people. It was not good-bye...it was simply see you later.
We are officially and solely missionaries now. We are excited about the future and what it holds for us in this ministry that God has called my husband to. God has blessed abundantly already. We have been in five churches so far and are at over 10% of our support. We are going to be in a lot more churches now that my hubby doesn't have the church and the people to focus on. We will be joining over at Bro. Joe Arthur's church this coming Sunday. We would go Wednesday night but my husband had already booked a meeting with another church a couple of months ago so we will be there instead. Please pray for Eagles View Baptist Church as they pray and seek God's will about their next pastor. Also pray for us as we begin this new and exciting journey that God has placed us on.
Now for the update on my weight-loss for this week. I lost 0.7 lbs. I was quite shocked actually. It is "the week before" and I usually gain a little bit. But I did drink my water like crazy so I'm sure that helped me out a lot. I hope to continue to keep up with that this week as well.
I pray you all had a great week with your journey to a healthier and thinner you. I have been praying for each of you!! I hope you've been praying for me as well. I sure do need it!! I know one thing....these last little over 3 lbs. that I have left to meet my next goal are harder to lose than the other pounds I've lost so far. But although I get frustrated with it at times the Lord reminds me of how far He's brought me so far with this. And when He does that I can't help but be thankful for what has been accomplished so far.
