We've learned all kinds of things on the Drive Home this week. Personally, I learned that when spicy food decides to attack your taste buds without warning, ICE-CREAM is the answer. Come to think of it, ice-cream is the answer to a lot of things. But that's a subject for another day.
"I just remember him saying, 'Mom, please, can I give some money? Because I love KLRC. They do such great things and they need to stay on the air so people can hear them!' And so that sweet little boy added up all the money that he had, and it came to like 7 dollars and 63 cents. But it was every penny that he had. " This is a story about Joshua and his heart. His mom told me how this same heart that moved him to give everything he had at age 8, grew even more confident and generous as he grew older.

A couple of weeks ago, we found a lump on our 2-yr old son. Last week, the doctors scheduled him for surgery to have it removed and that most likely it was not a solid mass because of its rapid growth. The surgeon removed it on Monday and informed us that it was a solid mass and it was being sent to pathology to see if it was cancerous. It immediately crushed us, but God started working on our faith immediately through scripture, family, friends, and KLRC. The same songs that we've been listening to for years had a brand new meaning. Every song felt hand selected specifically for us.

About 9 months ago, God laid it on my husband's heart to do something to unite the churches in our area. He was obedient and has planned a praise, worship and prayer event to do just that. The Lord has provided confirmations for our family that this is in his will and has provided the hands and feet to make it happen. We are so thankful to God for giving us this vision and task (we had been praying for him to reveal our purpose) but have still struggled with moments of self-doubt and fear of failure. We are praying that the Lord will continue to give us strength and encouragement as well as funding and help so that this event can do exactly what he's intended for it to do; bring unity in the body of Christ and revival in our community and beyond. On top of all of that, my husband gave up his career last November so that he could focus more on our family (he traveled for work). Since then, he has applied for many jobs but so far, nothing has worked out.
