Praise Report: Snow Update
The Night Before the Conference: On Friday evening, Brian Whalen and Jason Battaglia from Georgia were having dinner with our family and the Stewards (our host family and local coordinators). It had been snowing off and on all Friday, but in the evening it began to build up. There were about three inches of snow when Brian, Jason, Brett, Joel, Kimmy, and I prayed that God would not allow the snow to cancel the conference, while acknowledging His complete control over whether the conference happened the next day.
The Morning of the Conference: When we woke up early Saturday morning, we found that it had not snowed at all during the night. There was still about three inches of snow, but not enough to keep us from leaving. When we arrived at Foothill Christian Fellowship (the conference facility), we were amazed that it had no snow. It had fallen just below the snow line. Very few people cancelled because of the snow, the weather was perfect (if slightly cold), and the facility was crowded.
The Night After the Conference: Yesterday evening, the snow was gone. We went to bed.
The Morning After the Conference: When we woke up this morning there was over six inches of snow. There was also six inches of snow at Foothill Christian Fellowship, forcing them to cancel their service. We were amazed at God's display of His goodness and sovereignty. It could just have easily snowed six inches on Friday night and forced us to cancel the conference. We are so blessed to be able to see the hand of God in everything that happened yesterday. Soli deo gloria!
