Hey guys! Well, I just got through making (well.... at least trying!) some rice krispie treats! See, I'm not the best baker in the world, but I do enjoy trying. The worst part of all is that I REFUSE to read the directions! Anyway, tomorrow night a Bible study I'm involved in is having a Christmas party and I thought that I would bring some cute Christmas rice Krispie treats! They were (hopefully still are lol!) going to have one layer of rice krispies, then a layer of icing w/ red and green mnms, and then finally another layer of rice krispies *yum yum**! Although, some where along the way I messes up. I think half of the krispies part is still stuck to the bottom of the pan!!!
Anyway, I started thinking..... This is just like our lives w/ Christ. We can have great intentions and everything, but if we do not read God's word then everything is useless. By not reading the directions I made a terrible (Yes, I do mean terrible lol!) mess. So many times we (at least I do) think I can handle this on my own, but in the end I have truly just made a huge mess!
So, my challenge to you is spend some time w/ your Lord and Savior today!!!! Life can get sticky some times, but if we just read and FOLLOW the directions everything will work out!
As far as the ricekrispies.... We will see how they turn out lol! Maybe some will turn out so that I can take it to the Bible study tomorrow night! Doesn't this make you feel sorry for my future husband lol?
W/ all jokes aside... Have you done your quiet time today?? If not, go do it!!! Read the instructions!!!! Luv ya!!!

So, here it goes.... As Christians we on average disagree with foul language/ cussing or whatever you want to call it. I my self can not stand it. Although, as I was reading in a book the other day it hit me. We (Christians) often have our own watered down version of cuss words. I'm not going to list the words, but you know what I'm talking about. We have changed "bad" words just a little although we know what they mean and we say it in that same sense. So... whats the difference?? Others (Nonbelievers) also know what we mean. Do you get my point??!! I'm sure you have heard someone say how people are watching you, but it is the truth! When we say we are Christians it is as if we are wearing a name tag that says, "Representative of Christ". What kind of representative are you being? You may not directly say a cuss word, but is your language on the line? Can it be interpreted as wrong? You know... we can not control someone else's opinion of us or Christ b/c of us for that matter, but we can control the information we provide them that helps them make that conclusion!
Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give give grace to those who hear.

~ Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge His and He will direct your paths.~

I just wanted to share a precious moment I had today! A young Hispanic girl was sharing with me how she already knew her verse that we had taught today. She had memorized it during club! Anyway, she asked me what she would get if she went ahead and told it to me seeing that they had already received their prizes for the week! I didn't know what to tell her, but then she suddenly looked at me and asked, "What about a hug??!!"! How precious!! She wasn't interested in candy or any type of prize. All she wanted was love.... Let me tell you, I hugged that girl and did NOT want to let go!!!! Tears filled my eyes as I saw how little love she was shown in everyday life! So... give someone a hug!! Show them the love of your Lord! You may be the only one that shares that love with them...

Jonathan was telling us that in the past two years there as been a total of 17 decision made in Little Rock. This year as of Thursday night there has been at least 15 decision made. PTL
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette had an article in today's paper about World Changers.
"By the end of the week, World Changers aims to have repaired 25 homes, which would bring its total in Little Rock during the three years to 75 homes. Brown said all told, World Changes has saved the city $750,000 in labor costs. The city’s Housing and Neighborhood Programs Department identifies the houses through an application process and spends $50,000 for the supplies and materials using federal Community Development Block Grants."

Fox 16 News in Little Rock did a story on the world changers click here to see it. http://www.fox16.com/mostpopular/story.aspx?content_id=363C843B-9038-477A-959A-5F2E9C3A0875&gsa=true
On the World Changers blog in was reported that 5 people were saved at work sites Monday. Praise the Lord.
A story that she told us on Jonathan was that Sunday some guys from Texas had their lariat and was roping. Jonathan walked over to one of the guys and asked if he could try it. The whole time he was saying to himself, I hope I can still do this. He was able to rope it and everyone started kidding the Texans because this city slicker in his plaid shorts just beat them at roping.
Jennifer's team name is Plumb Bob and Jonathan's team is Sore Thumbs.

*For the family of the young lady that died.
*For the driver of the car as she is taking it extremely hard.
*The other driver involved (A young man who is only 17 years old.)
*For the teens that were her co-workers.
*Just that God would receive the glory for it all!
Again, thanks for your prayers!
Jennifer ~Jeremiah 29:11~
“Two of her summer missionaries (Elizabeth and Hannah) were coming back from a class this afternoon when they were involved in a serious accident with a teenager (age 17) who was driving a truck. Doris (Their leader) was driving down the same road they were on when she passed the accident. She turned around and went back to them. They allowed her to talk to Elizabeth after they got her in the ambulance. Then she watched them get Hannah out of the car. Elizabeth was taken to the hospital in Gadsden and was released tonight. Hannah was airlifted to the Children's Hospital in Birmingham and is in critical condition. Doris said they called and said that they did not expect her to live through the night. The driver of the truck was okay. At this point, Elizabeth does not know of Hannah's condition. They decided not to tell her yet. Doris and Robert are on their way to Birmingham right now. Please pray for Hannah and Elizabeth and their families, and Doris.” - Debbie BlackHannah is in the ICU of Children’s Hospital. Doris said that the next 24 hours are extremely critical and the Doctors are not sure if she will make it or not. Thank you for praying!
In Christ's Love,

We will begin our first week of clubs tomorrow in the Shelby County area! I know that I will be on a team of two (A young man named Wilson and I). This can often be difficult, but I'm looking forward to seeing how God is going to work!
There is an awesome group of teens from the Birmingham area involves this year! There are seven teens and 4 leaders.
Anyway, just a few specific prayer request...
~That our group will continue to bond into the Body of Christ!
~ For safety as we are traveling!
~For each one of our Physical Health!
~Also, each teen as they share the gospel throughout the week (Ruth, Mary Grace, Hope, Matt, Wilson, Caleb, Benjamin, and I)!
Thanks for your prayers! They are extremely appreciated! :)
In Christ's Love,

There are a couple of reasons that I started this blog! The major reason is because this summer I'm going to be involved with a ministry called, "Child Evangelism Fellowship"! We will be working and sharing the Gospel with children all summer! This is my second summer to be involved with it and I'm really looking forward to it!! Anyway, I thought that this would be a wonderful way for my supporters and prayer warriors to keep up with what all is going on and hopefully I will be able to add some pics!!! I figured I would just go ahead and get a head start trying to figure this thing out!!
Also, I would love to maybe share some of the things God is teaching me!
So... I hope you enjoy!
