FINALLY!!! After nearly 4 years of fighting vocal chord issues, I'm starting to get some answers, and PRAYERFULLY some resolution! I go in for surgery on my nose on Monday the 16th of September. The surgery is supposed to reduce congestion and drainage that inflames my vocal chords, which is what was causing me to lose my voice all the time! It's been something that I've fought for so long now, that even the glimpse of being to sing again without that problem, gives me so much hope! I've been to Dr's for nearly 4 years, I've been scoped 5 different times, tried 3 different Ear Nose & Throat Dr.'s, and recently started seeing a Speech Pathologist. And the whole time, wondered why God doesn't just 'fix' it. I know he can, effortlessly. But, I continue to trust that he has a purpose and a plan for me, and to be patient, while he uses every trial for His purpose!
I would love your prayers that this would be the 'fix' I've been hoping for, but if not, I still remain thankful for the years that I have been able to use my voice to lead people in worship, of a God that deserves nothing less than our EVERYTHING. God Bless You!
Seasons of change have come! Not just literally, but figuratively as well. Through what felt like a quick decision, but really was just following God's prompting, my wife and I recently relocated to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. My prayer for a while now has been that God would move again in our hearts in a way that would build our faith, strengthen our dependence on Him, and confirm that we were where He would want us. And God has answered that prayer. We've seen example after example of His provision and guidance in the two short months that we've lived here. We are excited to see what's next for us, as we walk the path set out for us! We miss Kooskia, but still have our home there, and will be back and forth quite a bit. We're excited to plug into ministry in the Coeur d'Alene area, and use the gifts and talents that God has given us, to help spread the message of JESUS! If you're in the area, let us know!
Well, we had our 3rd annual "Guy's Weekend" event, and what a weekend it was! Great Food, Great Fellowship, and Great FUN! Thanks to Three Rivers Rafting and the guides there for an awesome time on the river! And special thanks to Camp ALACCA and all their volunteers, for their facilities that we get to use and the friendly faces we see serving our group selflessly, for God's glory!!! Mark your calendar's for next year! It will be June 8th, 9th, and 10th!
