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

Considering It Joy
There is so much going on, I cant even begin to explain. I will however say, we have an enemy who is not pleased with 80 or so, kids hearing the gospel preached to them all summer. We are up against a few trials, that could have placed us in a position to delay our camp tomorrow...but we wont even give him the satisfaction. The LORD is in control of this thang. Would you please keep us in your prayers this week. Pray for humility,peace,and wisdom from above. Pray for consistent unity amongst us all throughout the summer( just because that is always good to pray..we have the BEST team ever!!)Pray as well for B.K. as he had to travel to preach at his step fathers funeral. Pray for Delta as well, as she is left here with their 4 boys. Grace to you all.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.-Ephesians 6:12
who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.-1 Peter 1:5-7
