Tomorrow night starts our annual Youth Rally at Lomax. This year I believe we have close to 700 pre-registered to attend. So, it looks like it will be a busy weekend for the congregation. There has been so much to do these last few days.... cleaning and making the buildings ready, preparing food (we feed everyone 3 meals plus snacks) and then there is the clean-up afterwards too..... not to mention all the stuff that will need doing while its all in full swing. Our theme this year is Jeremiah 29:11-14 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.
The focus is searching out God ...."with all my heart" and we are so looking forward to this great time of fellowship, learning, worship, and encouragement for so many young people.
We personally have been also getting the house ready for company... our good friends Craig and Sue are coming with their family for the weekend. We are so looking forward to a wonderful weekend.
