Heroically Speaking


Ok, so my husband, Glenn, is a hero. Now I know what you are thinking, "Of course you would say that, he is your husband" or "Yes, a hero to the family, all fathers are." While these are both true, my husband truly is a hero. He has had more than his share of "right place at the right time" to be able to be used by God, for His purpose. He helped save a man whose ultra light plane crash landed into Lake Havasu. He pulled a young girl from a burning car after her SUV rolled into a ditch, and worked tirelessly giving CPR to a young man after an accident at the gas dock at our lake house. Unfortunately, not all endings were happy ones. But God uses him. That is my point, and he goes and does and allows himself to be used, however God sees fit.

He just left yesterday for a 2 week trip to Israel. Little nervous, yes, but even he knows that if the Lord wants him somewhere, he goes. So, after much prayer, and some fear, I have accepted what God may have in store for him. I believe that this will be an amazing trip, not just for him, but for the entire team going.

There are 3 Pastors, my husband, 2 members of our church, and a new Christian that is going to be baptized in the river Jordan. How amazing is that?! I am so excited for the things they will see, the lives they will touch, the blessing the Lord will pour, and the lessons they will learn. Here is the team that is going, please keep them in your prayers for God to use them as He needs. (L) to (R) Pastor Craig, Pastor Roy, Joyce, John (gonna get baptized!whoo hoo!)Glenn, Pastor Mandy, and Richard. Heroes, every one! I love you guys!!
