We Can Explain...
Circle G Ministry
It's been a long time. (Sorry!)
(ABOVE) This is what church looked like for us at the Equine Affaire in Columbus, Ohio. These folks came to learn from premiere equine clinicians and to shop the hundreds of vendors. Some intentionally attended cowboy church, and some were just trying to get out of the rain. But they were there, and we had a chance to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them. This is our way of bringing church to folks who perhaps wouldn’t have attended otherwise. Thank you for having open minds and open hearts for this branch of Circle G Ministry.
(ABOVE) Shoes. We probably take them for granted. They’re just another little thing. No problem. But for kids in Guatemala, this little thing in our lives can be a really, really big thing in theirs. The Guatemalan government has made a rule that kids must have shoes to attend public school. So, what happens if you’re a 10 year-old-boy with no shoes? You drop out of school and work in the coffee fields barefoot. It’s absolutely unbelievable how one little (big) thing can change the trajectory of a person’s life forever. That’s why we were so honored to spend part of July in San Juan La Laguna with our Wikel Community Baptist Church family. In addition to giving away hundreds of pairs of shoes, our group got to feed hungry kiddos, minister to homeless abuelitos, provide free medical clinics, and share the Gospel in schools and homes. This is a little different from our usual ministry, but we absolutely believe in supporting and participating in missions through our own church as well.
(ABOVE) Fifteen? Seriously? We're not sure how it happened. We blinked and all of the sudden, fifteen years flew by in a flash. We were so, so, so grateful for the opportunity to celebrate another wedding anniversary. Also, since our last email, BJ turned 40 and I turned 35! Our prayer is that we don’t take a single day together for granted!
(ABOVE) The folks at Neola Baptist Church (Neola, WV) are outstanding. We appreciate Pastor Ralph Hubbard inviting us to preach their fall revival. It’s not about numbers, because each individual person and each individual decision are so important, but we do want to celebrate the nine people who gave their hearts to Jesus that week.
(ABOVE) Oops….I totally forgot to take a picture of BJ preaching, but I did manage to snap a selfie with my father-in-law, Bub Grimmett. This was taken during a revival at Calloway Heights Baptist Church in Beckley, WV. Please let your pastor or church leaders know that BJ is currently scheduling services/events for Spring 2019.
