Newsletter March 15, 2008

Spring is in the air! New life springing up all around us, always makes me even more excited about all the new life God is putting into our lives every day.

I have awesome news! In May of last year we posted this newsletter. In that post I asked you all to pray for a woman whom I'd met at a concert and had a long conversation with about God! I am so happy to let you know today, this woman has accepted Christ as her Savior and will follow the Lord in baptism soon!!! I never stop being amazed at how the Lord changes hearts and lives! This was great news to receive at the beginning of this week leading up to the celebration of Easter! Praise and thanks to our God and Savior, we have a new sister in the family today!!!

English Circle...

One of the ministries that I do is called English Circle. It started with myself and another Christian mom also raising her children in English. We wanted some English time for our kids, kind of like Sunday School where they could get some Bible learning and fun play time in. We told friends about it and we've been meeting for more than a year. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. Sometimes it is just our two little families and sometimes it is a LOT more, like last month when we had like 15 kids with Moms and a few Dads! It was a mad house, but so much fun. Enjoy the pictures.
