          About a year and a half ago when we worked with the children's home, we were one day moved from working with the boys home as relief houseparents to becoming interim permanent houseparents for the girls home. Because of this move we were away from our home church and had to find an alternative. The Lord led us to Drakes Branch Baptist where we were warmly welcomed by the members of the congregation and were encouraged in our walk with the Lord. Sometimes during services though, my mind would sometimes stray to ponder the question, Why here Lord? What is the purpose of being here? Kristin and I would discuss this question often. One day after six months of attending when we just felt comfortable and were looking forward to attending more often, we were transferred back to the boys home. However, the Lord had a plan.

         Today, I believe we got a glimpse of the question that we so often discussed. Today we were once again able to attend Drakes Branch Baptist where I was given the opportunity to share on the ministry of CEF to which the Lord has guided us to. We were given a warm welcome and we could feel the presence of the Lord. All in all, We are so very blessed that they have come on board and agreed to partner with us monthly in  ministry. We see now that the Lord has a plan and a purpose for everything He does. Praise, Honour and Glory be given to our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ for His provision.

Thank you Drakes Branch for partnering with us and we look forward to being in ministry with you.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11
