Missions A Heart Matter

What a wonderful week we had at Grace Baptist for their Missions Conference. We have come to love the people in that church because they have a relationship with us. My husbands twin brother was also a part of the conference this week, he and his family are missionaries in Uganda. The main speaker was Bro. Robbie Morrison along side him is his wife Carol. I am so glad that the wives and children are among the men in the conferences. It is a blessing to me and my children when other families attend.

One of MANY highlights of the week was going to dear couples house the Owen's, for the afternoon of fellowship. We have stayed with them on different occasions when we visit Grace. We were not able to stay with them this time due to a recent move into a new home. We got together one afternoon after breakfast and played a game "Joke and Pegs." Similar to the game Sorry. Of course we were learning so we didn't get mean. ha ha Mrs. Owen has bought Pittsburgh Pirates and Steelers shirts for my kids when visiting. She knows we are from Ohio a little rivalry I guess.  It also happened to be the week the Browns played the Steelers and by the way "GO BROWNS!!!" My boys put on their t-shirts and Joseph was loosing a game we where playing called "Greed." He goes and changes his shirt back to his "Nerd shirt" as Mrs. Owen called it...ha ha, but he began to score some points. He said, "See, it is the shirt, the Pittsburgh Pirates shirt, that's why I am loosing." We all had a good laugh. My kids love going their because she feeds us good old junk food. They don't eat it, but they enjoy feeding it to us. Such dear people we love. One afternoon was not long enough to spend with them.We just had a wonderful week, so thankful for those who prepared the food, we had some sweet fellowship, the preaching and special music was great too. The people of Grace have a giving heart.
