God is SOOO good!

"I lift up my eyes to the hills- where does my hope come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth." -Psalm 121:1-2
I had an incredible meeting this morning with Donnie Williams, the pastor at Lifepointe. He is such an awesome guy and I am really looking forward to being able to learn from him over this next year.
As some of you know we were going to have a lapse of income of about a month between our last day at Hope and when we could begin raising financial support, because we had to complete the church planter assessment in Chicago first. However, after my meeting with the pastor, he said he felt so confident in us that he was willing to allow us to go ahead and start raising our support now! We were wondering how we were going to make ends meet for the next couple of months, but were trusting God to provide. And guess what...HE IS! Where does my help come from? The Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth!
Now we desperately need your prayer as we begin meeting with people and asking them to partner with us in what God is doing! We need to raise our entire salary for the next year as we do our church planting residency...a daunting task. But, we are CONFIDENT in the Lord and HIS ability to provide for our needs. We are also confident that God answers the prayers of his people! And with so many friends and family praying for us, we know that God will take care of us.

"Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." - Philippians 1:6

  1. Chris I am honored to be praying for you and your family as you seek to follow God's leading. II Chronicles 7. God told Solomon how to put His Word to work and was very clear about what is necessary to receive His blessings. "If My people, who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their lands. My eyes will be open and My ears will be attentive to the prayers offered in this place..." (and keep reading !!) God has much for you, I am sure. I am on the Team !!!
