My Savior leads me, oh the fullness of His love…
We have felt our Savior’s guidance every step of this journey. Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Friday afternoon flew by as we set up for the conference. Others willingly pitched in to help prepare rooms and book tables. Five o’clock arrived, and many families came for the small business session. We had a great diversity of business owners from landscape contractors to a fitness business owner. It is amazing to see the businesses homeschool families are running, and the session is educational for those who desire a business.
There was a half hour break before our concert began, allowing time for fellowship and moving into the sanctuary. Music and Be Inspired! went smoothly.
The Lord brought a wonderful group to the conference. We enjoyed seeing old friends along with meeting many new families. I was thinking Saturday how blessed we are at conferences. The Lord strengthens us through seeing Him work and through the encouragement of His people.
Four families drove 10-12 hours to attend. What a sacrifice of time!
Joseph heard from a family whose son accepted the Lord Jesus as his Savior Saturday night after attending Joseph’s Who Is Jesus? session. We saw many fathers who committed to making wise decisions in raising their children for Jesus. It is exciting!
We love being able to do the family panel discussion as the wrap up to our day.
In addition to the pure joy of sharing at the conference, several families in the area blessed us with meals, treats, and fresh fruit. I have to say, an orange from Arizona tastes nothing like the oranges we buy in Kansas. Fresh-off-the-trees Arizona oranges were more than delicious!
Pictures from our brief time at Joshua Tree will be on the next blog post.
“Even there shall thy hand lead me,
and thy right hand shall hold me.”
