As you read this, seven LBA Senior Pastor’s and I are in Israel. This is a blessed opportunity to walk where Jesus walked! I have been told that after you go and then read the Bible you will remember in your mind these different places and be carried back there. Many describe the presence of God being felt so much in places such as the Garden of Gethsemane. Please pray for our safety and for renewal in our lives as we visit the Holy Land!
I just want to say thank you, thank you and thank you again to all who gave the Appalachian Back-packs! We feel we have well surpassed our goal of 750. We will let you how many as soon as we can.
We will never the little boy last year! He opened his backpack and got real excited and yelled out to everyone, “my favorite canned soup, I can’t believe I got my favorite soup in my backpack!”. We were all in awe! That is the kind of a thing that goes with you, as you reflect on just how much you are blessed and often take for granted!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
