Hope Praises!

We had a great Cookout/egg hunt on Sunday. We had about 55 people attend, over half of which were children. Of that 55, only about 5-7 had been to one of our events before. That’s good, because it means we are introducing ourselves to new people every time. We had quite a few that were interested in the Bible study. Pray that they follow through.

On Saturday, we spoke to a member of one of the families we asked you to pray for a while back. We didn’t give any names to you, but God knows who we’re thinking of. She seemed very interested, said she had been praying about where to go, so continue to pray for them and 2 other families that God has laid on our hearts.

A special thank you goes out to two churches:

The first, Kingwood First Baptist, allowed us to borrow tables, chairs, and a sound system for the day. Thanks so much to them.

The second goes out to Second Baptist Bridge City, TX and Pastor Bobby Hoffpauir. They are the process of completely remodeling their sanctuary that was destroyed by Hurricane Ike. They are also struggling with the loss of church members who have moved because of the lack of jobs in Bridge City as a result of Ike. Yet, that church that has all its own struggles donated $200 to today’s event! That is an incredible amount of faith for that church and it was a tremendous blessing to us. Had they not been so generous and made such a sacrifice, we could not have had this event at all. Thank you so much Pastor Hoffpauir and the people of Second Baptist.

Thank you to everyone who prayed. We are still seeing a build in momentum. Our plans are to be in the Summerwood Community Center in May and we are still trusting God for a launch date of September 13th. Please remember us every time you approach the Throne of Grace.
