On April 3rd, the Tuesday before Easter, I held my first ladies Bible study in the recreation room of DJ’s RV park. I was delighted that seven women showed up, and we had a wonderful session. I’m teaching on Forgiveness, and this crucial subject touches everyone, of course.
I had met Layne, the second lady from the right, the day before when she and her husband pulled into the space beside ours. We had a spiritual connection that I am not able to describe for you. We cried and prayed together, and on their leaving exchanged cards so that we could stay in touch. It isn’t my imagination that God is doing a spectacular work here. When Layne and Norris left on Wednesday, she looked intently at me and said, “This has been an incredible 24 hours for us here in this RV park.”
At our first Easter service on Sunday we had a grand total of 29 people! Four of them were children, leaving of course 25 adults. We were ecstatic. Four of us are missing from this picture, but I wanted you to gaze on these beautiful people that God is working on here in this city.
After church we grilled hot dogs and hamburgers for everybody–well, Michael did. On Friday, Jerry had bought a chef hat, had our church logo stitched on, and surprised Michael with it as he prepared to cook.
Recall that Michael is our son who for over 25 years was out of the church, but now is totally immersed in the work of God. I am forever thankful!
Last night was our 9th or 10th Tuesday night Bible study, and we had 10 adults there! Several are wonderful young men who are hungry for more of the Word of God. God’s presence is so real in our services–palpable and distinct.
So, it’s onward and upward for the Buxtons here in Lake Havasu, where God has been incredibly good, and has shown Himself strong and powerful. Thank you for your kind words of support…and for your prayers. Don’t stop praying for us.
