We Gather Together…

Last weekend, May 12th, on Mother’s Day, Apostle Iva Bowers held a BBQ at her home, at the Church, following the service. Her husband did all the work and we had a great time. 

Speaking for myself, it has been years since I’ve (regularly) attended church which is not to say that I have somehow back-slidden, but rather was homeless and moving around a lot; now, sometimes, I sit back and wonder how I ended up attending hers. Yes, I work here, in the office, but I’d pretty much given up going to church again and yet God seems to be leading me back there. Whatever his purpose, I’ll do my best to be obedient.

This BBQ was a blast. I’m new to Colorado Springs and my husband and I don’t get out very much. He had to stay home with Ishaq, our son, so I kind of live life for the both of us. 

The Lord has been so faithful to me! As I sit here going over the pictures of the events of recent days, I can only stand amazed that the Lord has entrusted me with the responsibilities he has.  I also worry – daily – despite my best efforts because this ministry needs to be able to get the grant so that we can hire a staff. I have a husband and child at home and he’s only in preschool, which means we can not both work full time job- that responsibility falls to me (and I’m delighted to have it that way as he prefers to be at home with his plants anyway). We need partners. We need people who are as concerned about the homeless, underemployed and chronically in need in the Colorado Springs area (the WHOLE area, not JUST Colorado Springs) as we are.

Anyway, just wanted to share the pictures taken on Mother’s Day!
