We love the Gospel centered messages and the Prophetic Art that you might have read about this post or this post. I love teaching preschool Sunday School and the hugs I get from almost every person I pass as I walk through the lobby.
But we REALLY love our mini-church.
Our mini-church, or home group, is a group of about 10 couples. We get together on Wednesday nights, share a meal, sing praise songs and discuss the week's sermon.
These people have become our family on the island. We celebrated an incredibly memorable Christmas with them. They gathered around us to pray before Chris left on deployment. I look forward to Wednesdays each week so I can get big hugs from my girl friends and share in the good and the bad of the week.
I'm just so amazed at the way that God has provided for us here in Hawaii. After a rough day emotionally yesterday, I knew that a few hours with my mini-church folk was just what I needed. And I was right. We laughed, we cried, we ate pasta and brownies and I drove home last night much lighter than when I went.
God is good.
