Summer Is Here!

Hi Everybody!!

Summer, though not official, is in full swing and hot as ever!

I have wonderful news!!! I just stayed over night in Woodward, Oklahoma and am on my way to Denver after attending the Oklahoma High School Finals rodeo. My son, Samuel qualified for the National High School Rodeo Finals in Farmington, NM in Tie Down Calf Roping! It was a great weekend and Russ Weaver and I, along with Terry Ward, held the church services there and filmed it for Cowboy Church on RFD. I am so excited!!

Everything else is going fine – part of my extended family (18 of us) went on a cruise to Spain, Italy, and France the end of May and we had a great time. It was especially good for Samuel, because he was so hyped about seeing the Coliseum in Rome. Because of the history and literature he had taken (and a few movies he has watched) seeing these historical places made it come to life for him. Lucchese and I enjoyed the cuisine and the styles of clothing and the beautiful countryside! BUT, as usual, I was very glad to be back in Oklahoma!

I have a very busy schedule in the next 4 weeks. Please go to our website – I hope to see you this summer!!!

Russ Weaver taught at the high school finals about how a blacksmith has tools and materials, but he has the choice to make the material into what he wants. God has given us the talents, gifts, and abilities to use and we have the choice to use it for God’s glory or for our own. That doesn’t mean you have to become a preacher or missionary. Just give God thanks for allowing you to do what you do and this will cause people’s eyes to be turned to Him.

In Christ,
