Last Saturday, we traveled with freeWAY to Sacramento for the youth event Infusion. The boys sang well in spite of some sound issues, sold some CD's, and then headed to San Jose East Valley Pentecostal Church.
On Sunday, my husband spoke during the "Pastor's Hour," then freeWAY and I sang during the following Jubilee service. EVPC is a beautiful church (check out their website at http://www.evpc.org/) and everything is meticulously cared for and managed. freeWAY, Bryce, Tyler, and I all did quite well with CD sales. If we had a place like that every week, we could definitely go on the road full time. LOL We had a wonderful lunch at Pastor Rodney Nelson's home, visited with friends, and finally headed back home Sunday evening.
Monday was a hurried day with doctor's appointments and hosting the Section Two Business Conference. There were some changes of positions, dinner served, and I went home exhausted.
Tuesday, Mark Yandris of Merced spoke to our musicians and singers and taught some new material. Afterwards, Mark came to the house for dinner and we had a great time chatting.
Wednesday, we had a missions service with special guest, Patty Hines. She has been an A.I.M. (short term) missionary to Madagascar and is now going to the Philippines. A DVD was shown of the many things in which she was involved in Madagascar.
Thursday, I sang at a ladies conference in Tulare hosted by Abundant Life Center under the direction of Stephany Parkey. I consider Stephany to be a very dear friend and admire her dedication to the work of God. Her ladies conference is always fabulous and well organized.
Friday, we attended the 50th wedding anniversary of Rev. and Mrs. Harvey Cantrell. Rev. Cantrell performed Brian and my wedding ceremony in 1979. The Cantrell's are a great couple and we love them dearly. I slipped out early to return to the ladies conference in Tulare where several miracles took place.
Saturday, I returned to the ladies conference for the chocolate themed banquet. There was good food, several different fruits, chocolate on the tables, a chocolate fountain, chocolate gifts, and entertainment by recording artist Karen Harding that made me laugh until I cried. Following the banquet, I met my husband and kids to spend the remaining part of the day with them. It was an enjoyable evening spent together.
Tomorrow, Karen Harding will be ministering at our evening service. She has already put in her request that I make her my famous burritos, so guess what I will be cooking? LOL
Even though it was a busy week, I thoroughly enjoyed traveling to the various places and visiting with friends. I hope you all have a blessed time as you worship tomorrow in your various congregations.
