Our Trip Home

We went home last weekend and would like to share with you about our weekend!!! On Saturday, we had the opportunity to share with our family what God is doing in our lives. We shared that God is calling us to go into Short-term Missions. Just as the Lord has commanded in Matthew 28:19-20,
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all the things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen."

We will be going through the International Service Corps (ISC) Program. This program is through the International Mission Board (IMB). As of right now, we feel that God is calling us to a country called Malawi in Africa. We are reminded of Romans 10:14-15,

“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace. Who bring glad tidings of good things!’”

We are so blessed to have families that were extremely receptive and supportive to what God is calling us to do. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!

After we shared this news with our families, we then had to get ready for Corey's 10 year High School Reunion. That's right, 10 years ago Corey graduated from West Hall High School! Can you believe it? Here are some pictures of us all dressed up for the Reunion:

What do you think??? We clean up pretty good, huh?

On Sunday, we had the honor of being at our home church, First Baptist Church of Oakwood, Georgia. This is the church where Corey and I met, got engaged and got married! Below is a picture of the sign that was on the church's marquee:

Well, Corey had the opportunity to bring the message on Sunday morning and I sang "The Power of the Cross". What a blessing it was to feel the Spirit moving that morning. We were blessed by the love and support shown to us while there.

Below are some family pictures we took Sunday after our church service:
