a life of gratitude (927-955)

Unplugged again!!! THe Lord can and does use all situations to bring His glory. My last “a life of gratitude…” post was about being camp missionaires and being unplugged at that camp. This past week I was the cook/gofer for 70 youth and youth leaders. Unplugged again! The condo we were in did have internet access, but it was very weak.

And, once again, the Lord use the week to bring many students from death to life.

The night before we left for camp our church secretary went to live in eternity with the Lord. The morning that we left our church secretary went to live in eternity with the Lord. The emotional turmoil at the beginning of the week was overwhelming. The Lord uses all situations to bring glory to Himself.

Counting made easy by seeing the Holy Spirit move….
