The Angels Are Rejoicing!

"...there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth." Luke 15:10

I am a single parent this week as Chris is in NYC on business, so things have been crazy busy! I wanted to sign on quickly to share our wonderful news, though. Shana decided on Sunday night to surrender her life to Christ!! And the very next day, her best friend Heather made the same life-changing decision. As the Bible states, "...all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). But if we "confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9). So God "commandeth all men everywhere to repent..." (Acts 17:30), and tells us that He is a "rewarder of them that diligently seek him." (Hebrews 11:6). We are so thankful that Jesus Christ gave His life on the cross, shed His blood as a ransom for us all, and rose from the dead so that we all can have this amazing opportunity for justification.

We are so humbled that these girls have accepted God's wonderful gift of salvation, and we pray that God would be near them and richly bless them as they begin their lifetime journey of following Him.
