Decisions, Decisions...

So, just an update regarding the merger decision for our church...

Well, it didn't go as well as we would have hoped, to say the least. The other church we were thinking of merging with voted 73% in favor of the merge. Our church had a majority vote in favor for the vote, but it was not enough of a majority for it to pass. So, we figured out from that vote that there are some people who are not happy with how things are in the church. It has been such an extremely hard week and a half for our pastor and Joel has been trying to be there as a support and encouragement to him, but sometimes to hear all the negative comments from people is very trying. If you think of it, please continue to pray and know that we continue to covet and appreciate those prayers. I know a lot of you are in ministry and I continue to realize how much strength God gives to those in ministry. He doesn't promise it will be easy, I know that, but I know He won't leave us either-what an encouragement. Thanks for your continue support!
Be STRONG and COURAGEOUS. Do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord OUR God is with you wherever you go! Joshua 1:9! AMEN!
