6 months

I have to admit I feel like a blog drop out!  I'm not going to focus on the past failures but try to do better in the future! God is at work in so many areas that I witness daily and I want to share a few!

AT FELLOWSHIP: In September we launched Sun Stand Still connect groups at Fellowship. Since we didn't have a connect group pastor or someone over seeing that area of ministry I stepped up and realized there was a hidden passion in me for connect groups. I know what being in a group has done in my personal life, my family & my marriage and I want every person to have an opportunity to be in a group. So many times I meet people that are in groups and they say, "I wish I would have taken that step sooner in my life to be part of a group." They say this because life change and transformation in Christ happens in the context of small group. It is amazing to see the impact and life change that has taken place in the lives of so many people. As we come to the close of our fall semester I'm so excited for what God has planned for the future.

Last night one of the guys in our group shared some small but huge steps that he and his wife have taken as a result of our group. This is the first group that this couple has been involved in and he said that after listening to some of the other guys he started praying with his family. He said this wasn't easy because he's never done this before. As he continued to share, you could feel the joy in the room and in his life! This is what it's all about, growing and sharing to become more like Jesus!

IN HAITI: Wilson and I were in Haiti last week. We had an amazing trip! The purpose of our trip was to check out the current orphanages that Stepping Stone Haiti has partnered with, to check up on the chicken coops, to look at possible future sites for Stepping Stone and also to celebrate Wilson's parents 50th wedding anniversary. For me the God moments were endless. I always love hearing the voice of God when you are totally out of your "normal" environment.

The FIRST Blog

I never thought I would be typing in a blogger!  I'm not really sure what the 1st post is suppose to say, but all I know is God is doing some amazing things in my life and in my family and we want to share it with our family, our friends and others that we may not get to speak to everyday.  We currently live in Orlando, FL. I work at Fellowship Church as the church administrator and Wilson my husband is a full time missionary. We travel frequently to Haiti to keep up with our ministry there called Stepping Stone Haiti. God is doing amazing things in and through Wilson in Haiti. His biggest project right now is chicken farming in Haiti. Its been really cool to see God at work in this area. Wilson has built several chicken farms and currently has a leadership team in Haiti to maintain two of them. The others are connected to orphanages to provide food.

We have two children Abigail (8) and Jacob (4). Abigail is just finishing  2nd grade and is a vibrant, social little girl. Jacob just finished preschool and is so cute but doesn't like being told that, he could be with people but is totally cool chillin at home. Our children bring so much joy into our lives!

I've recently been reading different blogs, some have really great information, some are really funny and some are just too long, so I will stop now for post #1!
