Slideshow: In His Hands

We were visited recently by Ryan Estes, a professional photographer from Pennsylvania. He sent about 35 photos from the few hours he spent at GSF and graciously allowed us to share them however we wish. This is just a quick iPhoto slideshow set to one of our new favorite songs. Thank you, Ryan, for capturing GSF and our family in some great pictures!

The song is "Arms That Hold the Universe" by 33 Miles.

Miracle Stories

I was sitting on a rock overlooking GSF the other day, talking to God.  I was discouraged and feeling as if nothing was really happening around here.  I asked God, "God, are you still working here in this place?"  He began gently reminding me of miracles He has done in this place recently and in front of me, and I had so quickly forgotten.  I was then prompted to begin writing these miracle stories down simply so that I can reminded of what God is doing.  We get so easily discouraged and overwhelmed by the work that we need to be reminded of His goodness and power!  If these miracle stories encourage you and point you to the miracle worker, then I have done even more than the original purpose.
 So for the next days, weeks, or months (not really sure), I will share with you some of our miracle stories here in this place.
