The Velcro Wall
Doesn't that look fun? This is Austin. There was a street party uptown this past weekend. It was sponsored by one of the area churches. It was used as a ministry for young people. Everything was free. There was lots of blow ups things, hot dogs, chips & pop, music, and the local Christian Music station was broadcasting live from there, and giving away things. It was fun. Rob wasn't really up to going, but we did. They boys enjoyed it. I didn't really get many pictures, but here are a few. Austin really enjoyed this velcro wall.
We ran into a man that we've known (not extremely close) since we had moved here in 1997. Rob was sharing with him the testimony of where God has brought us from. He got so excited, and went on to tell us that God had laid us on his heart back when we first moved here. He prayed that we'd be delivered from the bondage of legalism. Then, when he found out we'd left our organization, he said he continued to pray for us, that we'd not fall into the "lawlessness". Isn't it amazing that God gave him a deep burden for our family, and he didn't even really know why. God is so AWESOME!!! He was so excited to hear the things that we've come through, and what God is continuing to do in our lives. After Rob talked to him forever--he was very thankful that we'd gone uptown to this party, becasue he'd never have had the conversation that he did had we not gone. I love to look back at the day and see how God was in every part of the day. God is so faithful.
