This week we had the awesome privilege of attending and participating in music at our Bible Methodist Combined Ministerial in Bagdad, KY. It was so wonderful to be with other Bible Methodist pastors and wives - so many old friends and also new friends to meet!
Connectional Chairman Daniel Stetler ministering to us in the Tuesday evening service.
Marc conferring with President and Mrs. Sams about the music schedule for the service.
The sense of God's presence with us was very real as we listened to annointed challenges presented to us by our Bible Methodist leaders. At the end of a long deputation tour, this ministerial was just what we needed to refill and refuel us to Behold the Harvest!
The times of prayer together were wonderful.
We so much enjoyed the fellowship around the table, between sessions, etc....Here Julie, Kim and I are catching up with our kids via email since cell phone service was basically nonexistent.
It was so wonderful to be with our Missions Directors, John and Cathy Parker - love you all!
We were also privileged to be able to meet Daniel and Tiffany Melton and son Kenton for the first time although we have conversed by email in the past. They are EFM missionaries in Honduras. We enjoyed talking "missionary talk" with them and feeling that connection although we are both far away from our fields of service. So nice to meet you, Daniel and Tiffany.
It was also fun to have my sister Marci and her husband Anthony come on Wednesday evening to sing with us in a "mini-concert" by Mercy in the afterglow. I did not capture any pictures of this due to my camera not cooperating...it's tired from deputation, too.
Again, we were so thankful to be able to attend Ministerial - we will carry the memories of this time back with us to Mexico!
