Our family has been very honored and privileged to be able to have a family ministry that meets once a month to encourage and strengthen the Christian family. We do this as a family, working as a team, to be able to host such an event. Yesterday we had over 60 people in our home!
It all begins with a potluck first, we had 2 grills going and everyone brought loads of food.
Daniel led us in worship and did an excellent job as always---thanks, Daniel!
New and old friends showed up--it was so great to see each and every single one of them. Many people drive from out of city and state to join us.
Steve led the men and challenged them as leaders of their homes and to be godly men. Fathers and sons sat together listening, sharing, learning and sharpening one another as iron sharpens iron. And best of all, encouraging one another.
I led the women and encouraged them in their roles of wives and mothers. The title of our study was 'Deception and Discernment'. Many women shared how the world has deceived women today with lies and how we have to have discernment as Christian women. It was a great time of sharing God's truths. Here are some pictures of them afterwards when they broke off into pairs to talk and prayer for one another. Above are Lisa, Rhonda, Laurel and Kathy.

Juliet and Sande--I missed getting a picture of Joselly and Meghan.
Janai, my daughter, shared with the girls a clip of the movie 'Return of the Daughters'. She also led a study encouraging the girls to walk with the Lord.
Children had fun playing, there were so many, this picture only shows a few!
We also had enough time to squeeze in a few games of volleyball.
It was a sweet day of fun and fellowship and we are so grateful to have the opportunity to spend time with other Christian brothers and sisters in Christ. If you live in the area, be sure to visit join us at our next HomeBuilders meeting!
See ya'll next time!
