Catching Up!

That's what I'm doing today, catching up. I've been away for a bit, but i'm back. It's funny how much I miss this whole blogging thing when I don't do it.

Anyhoo, we had out Spiritual Conference with Bro. Bill Smith and it was fabulous! He did and outstanding job and covered many of the battles our people are currently going through.
We had a great crowd each night and many people praying at the alters. Sadly there were 3 unsaved people at the conference and they remain unsaved, not because they didn't have opportunity.

Here are some pictures I took, not many but some. Here's the line-up (literally) of our men at the conference, not all but the main ones. L-R Bro. Rajko is the national pastor that Johnny trained, Johnny is next (handsome huh?), Bro. Bil Smith, our honored guest and Bro. Dave Fraunhoffer, missionary in Hungary. Bro. Smith preached four times each night, over three days we covered 12 lessons or sermons. It was great and he did an excellent job. Oh yea Bro. Rajko translated for him every night.
On Sunday morning we had the priviledge of hearing Bro. Fraunhoffer preach to us. He did an wonderful job and brought the sermon we all needed to hear. Here is a picture from one of the meetings. You can see the crowd and the building. If you think our building looks sorta American in style that's because it is, we had 23 men come from the states with all the material and they built this building in 8 days. Really! We have a very unique building since it's probably the only one of it's kind in the country.

Anyhow, the conference went great and we look forward to seeing Bro. Smith next year as he returns to preach out 2nd spiritual conference.

Oh lest I forget, guess what wonderful thing is happening over at Sew, Mama, Sew!? She is hosting a tutorial contest and it's great. There are already some great tuts and I can't wait to see what else comes in. Oh yea and she's offering a $25 gift certificate to the Sew, Mama, Sew! store and trust me, they have great stuff! So, if you have a tutorial you would like to enter, please do. I can't wait to see all the entries.

Guess what? In less than three weeks my friend, my bosom pal is coming to see me. I can't wait, it's gonna be so much fun. They will arrive at the end of this month and be here for 9 glorious days. We're gonna be so goofy and have so much fun. Oh yea and when they get here I don't know how much I'll be blogging but I'll be taking lots of pictures!

Well I'm going to do some decorating today, well actually just putting some more stuff on the walls. I don't know if that's decorating or not but I'm gonna finally get that black frame grouping up. I was thinking of doing some vinyl lettering for it, but I decided against it. I thought about cutting out, "Today's moments are tomorrows memories" but I don't think I will, not now though but maybe later.

I have some new blooms in my yard. Actually one one is a bloom, I'm not sure what the others are. I love, love, love the purple Magnolias, aren't they pretty??
Then this critter and it's yellow blooming berries, I guess. Please, if you know what it is, leave a comment and let me know.
Lastly this tree, I figured it would have some blooms but this isn't what I expected. It's pretty though and the red is a nice change.
A new name, Praise the Lord Jasmin was saved yesterday evening. He's 20 and he'll be coming to church on Sunday. Pray he will decided to be baptized and get faithful. One more soul down, only 4,300,000 to go!

Have a great Weekend Y'all!!


  1. Wanted to stop over and say hello - let me know how you like the lemon sheet cake!

    I'm off to check out sew mama sew - I didn't know about it and I LOVE to look for new ideas!! Thanks!!

  2. Looks like you all had a great conference. I checked into my feed I think ths is it. ? Let me know if it works.

  3. That was a very good post. I'm very happy everything turned out well last week.

  4. Glad you had a good conference. Always refreshing to get fresh input on fighting the good fight of faith.

    Don't know what your "mystery flower" is. The flowers look like kalanchoe, but the leaves look like crepe myrtle. Hmmmm.....??

    Praise the Lord for Jasmine's salvation!!! Awesome! I'm so glad that you were refreshed by the preaching! Enjoy your time with your bosom pal :-)


  6. Great post, I will pray that the young man will be faithful. I know what that is like because we see people saved, then they drop off the face of the earth.

  7. Oh, I would have loved to have been at that conference. That would have been so wonderful!! I'm sorry about the three that would not surrender. The seed has been planted, though, and who knows how the Lord will grow it?

    So what are most of the buildings there like on the inside?


  8. What a blessing to have such a great conference! It is so exciting to hear what God does in other parts of the world. Keep faithfully planting the seeds and God will bring the increase - in His time.

  9. Hi Tori,
    It looks like I have a bunch of reading to catch up on:) I miss your reading blog when we're out traveling on deputation. I hope that everything has been going well for you family.


  10. I"m so glad everyone had a great time at the conference! Your blooms are so pretty, I've never seen purple magnolias!

  11. I am the conference went so well. We just finished Missions conference yesterday. I added you to my friends on homeschoolblogger so I can get to you blog easier, just to let you know. I don't know how to add friends like you with bloger, I know you can cause you have Michelle but this was the best I could do.

  12. Glad to hear that the conference went well. I was just curious about your building. The men that came over from the states and helped with the building where were they from? I am only curious because my Sunday school teacher went to Croatia and helped put up a building a few years ago.

  13. Praise the Lord about the soul saved! I'm glad the conference went well! I love the purple magnolias!
