The last evening went on without a hitch, except that the speakers got delayed in traffic for a little bit. We ended up starting a half hour late but other than that it went really well. We were able to record all of the meeting and our plan is to go back to the Senators and the House of Representatives and give them all a copy of the DVD’s that we did.
We made a few contacts and were able to witness to some people, it was very interesting but the buildings all around us were echoing the speaker’s presentation, so I’m pretty sure some people on the street were able to hear it too and hopefully heard something that would spark their curiosity or planted a seed somehow that will later be watered. Only the Lord knows what the result of those meetings will be. As soon as they are edited we hope to put it YouTube so that anyone may access it.
The next day Friday we had to take the trucks and the rented equipment back we also had to give the remaining food that was left to the homeless people and the shelters. So some of the group went and did that. The rest stayed back to clean the house for Sabbath and to make lunch for everyone. It was so nice to be able to organize the house and get it back into shape after the crazy week we had just had.
We decided to have an outdoor church service that week, and it was a wonderful time, Sabbath always is. 🙂 We needed a break from all that we had accomplished that week. Although it might not have been as many people as we would have liked; I believe the results of those meetings are going to have a deeper ripple effect then we realize.
We were finally able to unwind after that. Then after a few days of rest and gathering our strength, a new plan developed and one that is taking place right now. So the leaders thought that we need to do some follow up work. Not just with handing the DVD’s to the staff of Congress but to do something with health.
Right now plans are still being made, both to go to the leaders of our nation and also to the leaders of our own personal denomination to give temperance pledges. I am not sure exactly what all is going to take place in the next couple of weeks, but as soon as I get more information and more things start to fall in place I will definitely be writing it down for you guys.
I ask that you keep this group continually in your prayers. The ones who have left to go back to their own ministries and those that have stayed behind to help. We really appreciate the support of prayer. This endeavor would not have been possible if God had not been for it and had continually led us in the right direction. Thank you so much for what you all have done so far. May God continue to lead and guide us all and may we ever shine bright and be a star witness for Him! 🙂
