Tonight was the first night of the Strong in the Lord conference here in Kansas City, Kansas. It was a “tough-won victory” because Sarah, my dad, my mom, and two girls from our team are all sick (nausea, fever, etc.) They slept most of the day. We were all praying more intensely as we really saw this conference was going to be a struggle to pull off. I asked Sarah if she would give us an advance warning next time she was going to get sick so we could prepare more….[smile]
Thankfully, the Lord gave them all enough strength to get up tonight and be part of the conference. Sarah was able to do all of her session like normal and she did a very good job. Girls and moms have been enthusiastic and responsive. Personally, I’ve been encouraged to see the Lord answer lots of specific prayers—both big and little. He is faithful!


We were thrilled to have 90 people register at the door! 🙂


We arrived yesterday to a host of enthusiastic volunteers who helped us unload really fast! 🙂 The families here who are hosting the conference have done a terrific job and have taken care of so many little details.

Please keep us in your prayers this week. Like our last Bemidji trip, we have a “double conference” planned. (Strong in the Lord conference for younger girls first, and Radiant Purity conference for older girls second.)

  1. Aw, so sorry to hear some of you aren’t feeling well! I’ll be praying for you all, Grace, for your health and that things would go smoothly. (P.S. First picture: I see Carolyn!!!)

  2. Thanks for the update Grace! Praying for health and for the Lord’s continued working and blessing as you all serve!

  3. Hi Grace, It is so encouraging to hear that despite the “toughness” during the conference, the Lord was good to use it to reach out to many people. I hope the Radiant Purity Conference goes well, and I am looking forward to attending it when you all come over to Asia!

    P.s. I’m so glad to see my sister in the first pict:)

  4. You all are in my prayers!!!
    May the Lord pour His grace upon you and be your Strength. I am looking forward to how He will continue to show Himself strong – even more powerfully through this time of physical weakness!
    With love in Him,
    Amy

    “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
    Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” 2 Cor. 12:9-10
