As most of you know, I am in MN right now, being a companion for my great grandmother. It is great getting spend extra time with my Lord, family, and friends. While I'm staying here, I have gotten to meet the sweet kids next door. They come over quite frequently to ask if I can "play" with them. We were coloring the sidewalk with chalk one day when, after a few questions, one of the girls told me she had never heard the story of Jesus.
I can't even imagine! The neat thing is, the Lord had chalk right there and available, so I did a "chalk-talk" with her. Since then, she has asked some questions, and though she is not really interested, her curiosity keeps her coming back. We've played games, done crafts, looked at pictures, eaten snacks together, and all kinds of things. I love my "little friends"!

"If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
On Thursday, April 27th, my brother and I once again were asked to perform, this time for a program celebrating the National Day of Prayer -and it was very much an honor! My brother David quoted excerpts from the Declaration of Independence. It would be very good for all of America to read and understand the Declaration, for in it are many of the reasons why we have a nation, and how we should keep it. I was asked to play for the prelude and postlude something that included Pachebel's Cannon in D. What a blessing to be included! Truly, the Lord was at that meeting, and hearts were turned to the King of the Earth. Lord, bring revival once again to America, and turn the hearts of Your people back to You!

Since we have completed the 10 commandments, junior church has started a different series- this one on missionaries. (Partly because that's where my heart is.) Last week, there were missionaries at our church from Japan, and my kids had lots of questions, so we looked at my internship in Japan this week. The kids were rivited. They jumped all over the place, drinking in the pictures, the language, and the customs. So precious! With the weather today, I didn't know if any kids would come, but the Lord brought seven boys out in the cold to come to church!The Kindopp brothers brought friends of theirs to church. How amazing to see them excited to not only come, but to bring others as well. May the Lord bless His Word and use it in the lives of all who heard it today!
Some folks say that April showers bring May flowers, but whoever wrote that saying wasn't from Montana. We have had snow each month in the year at one point or another. Last week, it was 70 degrees. This week, it's 35. So, what's a little snow in Springtime? Though it may seem strange to have green grass next to white snow, the contrast in color is amazing! God sure knows what He likes!
