My heart is excited about the prospects that the Lord has given to us over the past two weeks! Last Saturday we reserved lanes at the local bowling alley “Strike Zone”. The goal was simple, invite our Oikos and connect with them. We paid their way to come, ordered the in house pizza (heartburn city ha) and invested in them

The result was good! We were able to connect with 25 individuals! Of course that was exciting! They represented 17 families!

We will be having another Connect Event soon and look forward to inviting more of our Oikos to it! Please pray for us as we continue to build relationships with these people so that through the relationships people will come to Christ and begin their walk in discipleship!

As we communicated when we were visiting churches, Justin & Hollie Burdick are moving on the field Dec. 28, 2013. Hollie has obtained a job at Baptist Desoto Hospital. That was great news! However, Justin has yet to find a job so please lift him up in prayer as he searches for the job that will fit with helping the plant. They have rented an apartment here in Southaven. I admire and love their willingness to follow the Lord’s direction and move away from home to join Him in His work here! Justin will begin working with our kids and teens as well as helping with discipleship booklets and classes! We are excited to have them on board!

This Sunday night we are going to have our first Christmas together as a church! I am looking forward to hosting all our precious families at our house! Nothing thrills me more than for all of them to be here together!
