School has started! Our history curriculum this year is focusing on geography. We will be studying world areas, missionaries in each area and the geography that goes along with it. It is a great year for this as we are planning our big move to Hungary!
Alton Emmanuel Free Methodist Church
We saw some old friends at Alton Emmanuel and met many new friends also! Many people spoke words of encouragement over us and the church was a blessing to be a part of for a Sunday.
Driving home from Alton, the girls needed some rest. Chadwick and I needed some....
In September we also started cleaning and preparing our home to be listed for sale!
The Anderson girls were such big helpers since they know that selling our home means we are one step closer to moving to Hungary! They love to help and be a part of our family mission however they can.
Tower Hill Free Methodist Church
The girls have a plan for each Sunday that we attend a church for when daddy does his presentation and needs just "one volunteer" to stand at the front. They work it out ahead of time as to whose turn it is to stand in the front. We are so glad they love to be a part of sharing our testimony!
We felt honored to visit Tower Hill and hear all of the testimonies of prayers being answered in their church. God is good!
A few days after the hurricane hit North Carolina, we took off with Pastor Paul Alf and his wife Tiffany to Greensboro for the D6 conference. The conference sessions were great reminders of how God can use discipleship in the home to transform his kingdom.
Chadwick was able to write and perform a spoken word
for the stage at D6.
By happenstance, I just finished reading a book on Christian hospitality right before we left for NC. "The Gospel Comes with a House key
." The author of the book I read lived in NC. I emailed her publicist and asked if we could come to one of her open door dinners while we were in NC. She said "yes!" We felt honored to be a part of Rosaria Butterfield's table as I was given the chance to observe a radical form of Christian hospitality in practice.
More school! We love to intertwine great books with all that we are learning in our school day! Even Toby the cat likes to be a part of what we are reading.
At the end of September, we were able to speak at both Centralia and Salem Free Methodist Churches. So thankful for the hospitality shown and the welcome we received!
