Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, and from your relatives and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you; Genesis 12:1
God called Abram away from his home and the family he knew to lead him to a place He was going to show him. He didn’t give a map or itinerary… God just said, “Go.”
Abram did an extraordinary thing… he went!! He stepped out in faith, trusting that God was going to be faithful and Abram followed the God that called him. Wow!
We first sensed God calling us to ministry in 1998. We had been married a year, had left the military service and were trying to find our way in our home state. We tried to side-step our calling a few times only to have doors that we saw as ‘wide open’ slammed in our faces. So we were humbled and went to Bible School. We then found that a river of blessing does indeed flow from the fountain of our Lord!! We simply had to bend our knees, hold out our hands, and accept what was freely given.
It has not been an easy road, but God has provided all we needed for the journey. It has not been a short road, but God has given us strength for the long walk and fellow travelers for comfort. These fellow Believers provided much encouragement during our travels and we thank God for them!
We are still journeying down this road that God called us to walk. We stepped out in Faith; we experienced all the emotions present with leaving the ‘land we knew’ to follow our Lord. We are eager to share our journey, our growth, and our Faith with you. You are welcome to journey alongside us! We are happy to share our history with you, which has truly shaped who we are today.
Take my life and let it be; consecrated Lord to thee. Take my moments and my days, let them flow in ceaseless praise, let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my will and make it thine; it shall be no longer mine. Take my heart it is thine own, it shall be thy royal throne, it shall be thy royal throne.
