Interview Part 2

Well, we went back to Green Valley Baptist Church this past weekend! Thank you again for all the prayers and support! It is greatly appreciated! Once again, it was a wonderful time of fellowship in Christ! We left Saturday Morning and arrived in Lebanon early afternoon. We got there a little early so we could look around at the homes in the area...just in case! :)

We were picked up by the Pastor and his wife around 5pm. They took us out for a drive and dinner at Logan's Steakhouse. What an amazing time of fellowship! We were with them until 9:30pm that night! We did not get to spend time with them on the first visit due to a death in the church, so this was a great opportunity to get to know them.

On Sunday, we sat in the Youth Sunday School Class and got to meet some of the youth. Then Amy sang during the service and Corey brought the message. He preached on Ephesians 2:11-22 about being One in Christ (In Christ Alone!). It was a well delivered message.

Corey Preaching!

After the service, we were asked to have lunch with the Pastor, his wife, their daughter and granddaughter (who is in the youth). We had a great time of fellowship with them. We hopefully should hear back from the church within 1-2 weeks. We are thrilled to see where God will lead us! Stay tuned!!!!

Interview Part 1

First, I want to thank everyone for your prayers for this past weekend. It was incredible. For those of you who do not know, we had an interview for a church position this past weekend.

We left around 8am Saturday Morning and got to Lebanon, VA around 12:30pm. It was a beautiful drive there. We wanted to get there early to drive around the area and see where things were. We checked into the hotel around 3pm and we were picked up by one of the personnel committee members about 4:45pm.

We then went over to Green Valley Baptist Church where we met all the members of the personnel committee and the pastor. They then showed us around the church and then took us to dinner at Bonanza Steakhouse. We had a private room in the restaurant where we ate. After we ate we remained there in the room to have the "interview". The "interview" was a wonderful time of fellowship with other believers. God was truly evident in all that was discussed in the meeting. Our "interview" lasted until 9pm that night.

We were also asked to attend their Sunday Morning Service. We were truly blessed as we attended the service. As we walked out of the morning service it was SNOWING!!!! Can you believe it?!?! SNOW in April!!! It was beautiful!!

Well, as were leaving we were told that the committee was going to take a week before we would be contacted again. However, the church contacted us on Wednesday night and said that they felt God was leading them to have us meet with the church again. So, we will be going back to VA on April 26th -27th. Corey has been invited to preach on Sunday the 27th and I will be singing. We will also be meeting with the pastor and his wife for dinner on Saturday the 26th. We are so excited!

Thank you again for all the prayers and support! We appreciate them! We will keep you posted, so keep checking back.

Enjoy some pictures of the scenery!!!
