Some highlights from the last few days:
– “It’s A Wonderful Life” was a successful start to bringing Lamplighter’s to Sumner County. What talented actors! I look forward to “Pride and Prejudice” in February.|
– Kent Henry was a breath of fresh air for our church. I have always been a fan of Kent’s music, but now he has become a new voice of wisdom and encouragement in my personal ministry. I think he will have a special relationship with CIL in the future. We had a nice conversation on the phone today as we discussed ways he can minister to our church in 2009.
– Being together on Christmas Eve is an important thing for our church family. I know everyone can’t participate, but I was blessed to be with those who were at our Christmas Eve Service. Penny, Malissa, Matt and Colby did an excellent job with the music!
– After Santa visited the Allison home, we drove to eastern Kentucky to have Christmas dinner with Beth’s family. We’ll stay here for a few days. I reflected quite a bit on the relaxing drive here, and God is already speaking to me about next year. Some of the most significant things I have heard from the Lord have occurred while I have been here in the mountains, so I expect some great spiritual insights as I finish the year up here.
Here are some pictures of me and Luke hiking. We are on the mountain behind Beth’s childhood home in Kentucky. Look at the last picture – at the bottom, you can barely see the reddish roof of her home through the trees. The other homes belong to other family members.
I was proud of Luke for being so brave!
