Week 4, Kenai Peninsula

Proverbs 31:8-9
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.  Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
I apologize for being incredibly late on my week 4 blog.  I did not forget, I just have been incredibly busy - busy in a great way.  Watching what God has been doing is incredibly humbling.  It is still hard to believe I am apart of what He is doing here in this beautiful state, Alaska.

Week 4 was absolutely wonderful.  We had a group come in from Northern Mississippi and Southern Tennessee.  These 2 groups merged together in what I would say is a beautiful tapestry of God's glory and beauty.  It was awesome to see how God took 2 men who went to Seminary school together to come together, mesh 2 groups together, and then watch them work in unity in which God calls us: to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and body and to love our brother as our self.  All of this while serving those who are lost, broken, fatherless, hungry, without clothes, and widowed.  God is so good.  

It is so awesome to be apart of what God is doing.  May we humble our hearts at the feet of Jesus, surrender to His calling and His will, and let Him lead us on the road to planting seeds and bringing in the harvest.

  1. Anna - We are enjoying your blog! Week 4 in Kenai was a tremendous joy to us and God really did do some wonderful things. It was exciting to read what happened in Week 5 and know how God is still moving in great ways. It was really fun getting to know you. Thanks to all of your team for taking such good care of us. We hope to see you again - we have definitely caught the vision for how God is using Graceworks in Alaska!
