Today we chatted with a friend who was part of a team of 50 that Lynn and I led to Ukraine over 10 years ago. We reminisced through stories, conversations, team times, line dancing, sharing our faith. Moments strung together which were significant and bound us together forever. He told me that the seeds we sowed birthed over 300 churches! Churches birthed from shared moments and conversations...sounds underwhelming, but so significant!
Never, never, ever, underestimate the underwhelming moments and conversations which make up your sacred overwhelming life! You are significant and a big deal to the Father. You are a big deal to the people and places where you live and are called.
"Your home will be a place where the
extraordinary can come and rest and
be ordinary and the ordinary can come
and be extraordinary"
Today we ask that you would join this moment and story. We ask that you would fast one thing for the last 21 days of December (Dec 10-31). Something you would miss and would remind you to pray for the provision to buy this retreat by the end of this year. While on our recent trip to sign for the house YWAM students decided to give in the face of their own needs! He is faithful and our provider and we ask you to stand with us is prayer cover asking for a miracle this last month of 2014.

We love you and thank you for being in our moments. Moments which make a difference!
Merry Christmas, Rich and Lynn
