He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

The Gospel Is Contagious!
I cannot begin to tell how thrilled we are about what has happened!!!!! Last night there was a total of 16-17 girls at my house for bible study!!! Ok, so, of course you know there is our SLAM! group of teen girls..Now what has happened is, the last couple of months or longer the middle age girls have been sharing with Kevin and Bk that they too want to be a part of a bible study like the guys. So, Bk then asked one of the elders wives at our church to prayerfully consider coming out with her daughter( who is 18) to our neighborhood on Wednesday nights to teach our younger girls about Jesus. She prayed, and she and I met and talked through some Tasty Faith curriculum that they could use..Long story short, it went down ladies and gentlemen..
Wednesday nights SLAM!& Baby SLAM!( as our teen girls call them..lol) will meet for dinner at six and then afterwards we will split and the middle age girls will meet, then Delta and I will have our usual meeting with the teen girls!
Please pray ya'll!! We don't know what the LORD is doing, but HE IS BRINGING them in, we are excited, and humbled that the LORD is giving use the privilege to be used in the lives of soooo many girls!!
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!!
