Happy Friday y’all – it’s good to be back!
Last week we had a nearly empty base, as many of our staff travelled to one of two conferences; YWAM Presence Gathering in Chico, and Todd White’s School of Power and Love in Bakersfield. Both groups of staff had a blast worshipping together with other followers of Jesus, blessing people they met with prayers and kindness, and learning more about the amazing God we serve.
Back on base this week, we all had a great time with Purpose Church from Pomona, as well as two-day groups, Central Valley, and Hanford Christian Schools. 2016 production records were broken in the tray shed, and in the soup plant, where they produced a whopping 2 million servings of dried soup mix – fantastic job guys! It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we work together in unity for the purposes of God’s Kingdom.
We also got an extra dose of blessing from Don and Bertie Bibler, who graced us with their splendid musical stylings on the keyboard, and on the trombone. The Biblers met when they were only 12 years old, and have been married for 67 years, travelling around, bringing the joy of the Lord with them everywhere they go.
Thank you all for such a noteworthy week!
