photos to come, moving it from other blog

[Photo]Please don't think these faithful saints are hanging out by the pool here in California, dancin' with Mickey Mouse! They are laboring! The all went out in near 100 degree weather with humidity and hit neighborhoods! Then set up a music scene outside, and rapped and witnessed to each and every visitor! There were probably 40 some visitors that heard the gospel! Before the concert even started, I talked with a young man Josh 24, and had 1/2 a witness in and handed him to Tony and he prayed right in the church before we even began to outreach! Just amazing, he came back for a bit of the concert.
Our kids were so excited to see the folks from Alamogordo, and Eric was so stoked to go on outreach with Jaime! Thank you Liza for your faithfullness to see your son living for Jesus...
[Photo]William our faithful disciple, saw a need as one of our canopies broke and he went right to his house and got his! He was so excited to be a part!
[Photo]Jim, whose testimony brought me to the first tears of the visit. I just looked at this man who holds tight to Jesus, and the grace of God upon his life. He is a witnessing man with God all over him.
[Photo]This is one of my favorite pics, Marc witnessing to one and our William witnessing... William so reminds me of Marc, his drive and desire for Jesus and to be used by him.
[Photo]Excitement, police rolled by us with lights, no sirens...but not for us, somebody else, but exciting none the less!
[Photo]Levi, a man Tony has talked with came and rededicated his life, and oh his excitement for life!
Yes, this is just the first day! I am exhausted, sweaty and still smiling! Thank you family who released your husbands, sons and wives and daughters to come. You have so touch a city ripe for revival.
Tomorrow, prayer at 9am, outreach all morning, then concert at 2pm outside in front of Starbucks in the busiest grocery store parking lot of the town! Pray!
Then we are honored to have Ben Sr. preach for us! We gonna have Church!!!!

Quick Recap on Wednesday

Our faithful Colleen! She came to prayer Wednesday morning, so excited to meet all the Alamo folks and pray with us! This is such a huge step for her, how precious to see our faithful Colleen among our friends!
Next is a bit of a fun pic, you who know him, and his habit to pray in another room will know who he is, but I had to capture the full effect of it!

The Chiles have the other blue recliner and were hoping to have this one also...but it is in the ministry now, in our nursery, but Malkeem was able to lay claim to it! How I smiled taking this picture. He is not sleeping, he is petitioning our God!
A few action shots at the concert, it was hot, let me tell you! Ben is here witnessing in the parking lot!

Wilma dealt with this lady for a while, planting kingdom seed. I must say hers and Jaime's testimony were so annointed this day.

Her is my Amber and Sheila, who prayed with me today also! Amber is a goof, and makes me laugh, but is making I love the goofy! lol See my Abby hammin' it up in the background, she gets that from her dad! ha ha

Church service! 19 of Yuba City! 16 of Alamo! It was indeed rocking! Sitting next to Kim, a convert that has not "locked" in, but is doing better, she prayed last nite for rededication also. She made some decisions and I so ask you to pray for the peace of God upon her life!

Amber's son Mario is like seeing Joshua Chiles all over, the precious heart and kindness also. Malah fell in love with him and his sweet self...and Mario loved her right back!! Malah blessed me at altar call to take the I could pray with folks at the altar, for Amber rededicated her life, she brought her parents to church too! She is a bringer!

Ben blessed us with his preaching and then had the Alamo folks pray for the Yuba City was beyond powerful! What a encouragement to our lives, the folks and this city! More later!

This is in the parking garage of the airport, we squeezed all in the big van and our family van, I think Dee is gonna smile as much as me!!

Time is always a factor, so we ate quick at In-n-Out! Tony passed out the schedule for the week to everyone, and Marc prayed with a 17 year old right there in the resteraunt! God is so on the throne!

The phone rang this morning, 6:30am, of course I am up, it's Malcom C! My honey answered with a falsetto voice and Malcomn fell for it...ha ha...
The whole group was getting ready to board the plane, Kent and Dee were already preboarded and Malcoom saw a lady I had dealt with over and over Yvette. She was getting on the same plane! Small world!

Yep! She is exclusively selling at Scrap Orchards! It is a fun shop, and I am new to it, but she has filled her store already with 3 beautiful kits:

Something Fishy~and here is a fun layout done of Eric at the pool with those silly noodles! Eric loved the kit when I opened it, so I had to put him in I love to see him laugh!

Floral Fresh- a bright and cheery kit:
I really enjoyed this layout! We went to Sacramento last Monday...and went to Sutter's Fort, and got into a fun coversation with the front park ranger and she gave us a free family pass for another State museum...we were rather proud!

Last but not least; Spring Fresh, this is a digi paper scrap kit, I really felt like I was paper scrapping on the computer, and it was cool!
I had taken pics of my poor twins trying to dig holes for the roses from mother's day, but they don't weigh enough to push the shovel in, but the photo was hilarious!
I did 3 layouts for Lyndsay in 2 days, along with 1 for Lorilei, another for Carolyn, and 1 you get to see tomorrow for Charlie!
Hold on to your hats for Charlie has some fun and exciting news!!

Rosey Posey!

Oh boy, the first kit from Lorilei Murphy! SKEEReD at Rosey Posey Studios
I loved it immediately and laughed at the "monsters" perfect kit for those little monsters we all raise and grand monsters too!
This is my Abby last Halloween! I had so much fun doing this layout!


Really it isn't that much...

It isn't a hard one, Lorilei Murphy and I have worked together on a QP team, and she is amazing! I mean she is AMAZING! She started her own store, and it is just the cutest store...
I did a guest call for one of her kits, and loved the rich and fullness of her kits. She is a designer who knows what a scrapper likes!
I am very excited to be a part of her "on call" team...which means, she knows I am in over my head scrap wise, so can say no...can I say no? probably! ha ha
But go check out her store...Rosey Posey Studio - I am downloading a kit right now, that is back later with a layout!
I had to have one more, I don't do well with odd 8 is a good
