Paul & Natalie Epperson

So often in life, we can get tunnel vision where we only see what’s right before us, forgetting that God sees the bigger picture.  But occasionally our loving Father graciously lowers those guards around our eyes to give us a glimpse of the beautiful masterpiece He is creating around us, reminding us He holds the world in His hands.  At a kids’ camp this summer, a father shared one of those experiences with us.  He approached us with tears in his eyes and began to share that his 7 year old son was supposed to attend camp that week, but days before had medical issues that resulted in a heart procedure.  Because his son couldn’t attend, another young boy was able to come in his place.  The father beamed as he told us that his son had accepted Christ the year before, but the boy who took his son’s spot at camp, gave his life to Christ that night!

This summer we’ve had the privilege of preaching God’s word at 7 events, to over 1,300 people, where God brought salvation to over 30 young lives and many more made decisions to go deeper in their walk with the Lord.  “Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, ‘The LORD has done great things.’” (Psalm 126:2)  Thank you for your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now!   You have been a blessing to us and many more.
