Here's Kelli buzzing that buzzer in Eric's ear:
Alright, so here's the Intimate Encounters update. We just started our new class last week - now we are the lead teachers, and James Eubanks is our co teacher. We are teaching at 8am, so it's EARLY! Everyone thought we'd have a pretty small crowd in our class since it's early, plus we're starting a new 8am service that we thought would draw people away. Guess what? We had 39 (an odd number because James is teaching and Carol doesn't come til their 9:30 class). 39 people!!!! God is crazy awesome - can you believe that many couples wanted to come work on their marriage in a tough, with homework 14 week intensive marriage class?????? Satan better get back, because Christian couples are fighting for their marriages. We already know of 6 couples who will be there next week who just couldn't make it the first week...I'll keep you updated, but I continue to be amazed at what God does with us - pray we'll be faithful to what we've been called to do and real with the class and keep our own marriage top priority as we try to teach what a real marriage is about.
And, this doesn't have anything to do with that, but will you pray for Landon? He's been really having a tough few days, and I'm worried about him. Several, and I mean several, things have come up - and after going so long with no options, it's just a little overwhelming to have numerous things going on at once right now. Pray the Father will make His will CLEAR to Landon - and pray the two of us will be united in what He wants...uh, and pray I'll be kind to Landon and patient. PLEASE. Thanks for lifting us up. We're so excited about our new class.
