Thanking the Lord for 14 Blessed Years!

Fourteen years ago today, it had been raining for days on end and Lexington was flooding, but there were also showers of blessing and our hearts were being flooded with joy. New Life Baptist Church was organized on March 2, 1997, out of Trinity Missionary Baptist Church of Richmond. The Lord has been so gracious to us and has always proved Himself faithful. We are grateful for each and every one that has passed through New Life Baptist Church over the years. May the Lord continue to bring glory to Himself in and through NLBC.

“Then Joshua called the twelve men from the people of Israel, whom he had appointed, a man from each tribe.  And Joshua said to them, “Pass on before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of the Jordan, and take up each of you a stone upon his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the people of Israel,  that this may be a sign among you. When your children ask in time to come, ‘What do those stones mean to you?’ then you shall tell them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD. When it passed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. So these stones shall be to the people of Israel a memorial forever.” (read all of Joshua 4)

A Brief Overview of Our Church History

“O Lord, Thou art my God; I will exalt Thee, I will praise Thy Name; for Thou hast done wonderful things; Thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.”  –Isaiah 25:1



Isaiah 58: First Cookout of the Year!

We kicked off our 2010 Isaiah 58 Ministry last night and more than 100 of our neighbors showed up to hear the Gospel, grab a burger, and fellowship with us.  Pastor Steve preached a 5-minute sermon from the book of Hebrews about the grace of God.  Bro. Roger Cruz translated the message into Spanish for all our Latino friends who came out!  After Bro. Randy led us in prayer, our neighbors lined up to grab some grub.

Kenny worked the grill along with Denise (Charlie supervised!).  Ethan, Landon, and Joseph made the lemonade with Nikki.  Cheryl, Brenda, Leslie, Mollie, Helen, Ron, Wayne, Jason, Micheal, and Olivia all worked the serving line at one point.  Harry did a lot of the grocery shopping and was serving in every way as usually does.  Roger and Gina served the drinks (la limonada!).  Randy had trash patrol (he could squeeze more trash into one bag than anyone I’ve ever seen)! 

Everyone worked together very well and enjoyed getting to know our neighbors.  Pray that the Lord will water the seeds that were planted and give us courage and boldness to plant even more next time.

Remembering 12 Years

A Brief Overview of Our Church History

For those who don’t know, on Sunday we all wrote down where we were 12 years ago and how the Lord has worked in our life since then.  If you did not have the chance to write that out, please see Sarah for a piece of paper.  They are being compiled in an album along with pictures!

Scripture @ Sunrise 1.28.09

Snow & Ice…has Isaiah 1:18 entered your mind? 
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.”  -Isaiah 1:18

Before all this messy weather came through (but isn’t it pretty?!), I was sitting in my car Sunday night before my flute lesson as snow was quickly falling.  I couldn’t help but think of that verse and how my nasty, dirty sins were washed as WHITE as the snow that was falling!  Oh, I was excited!  Do you ever have one of those moments?!  And to top it all off, I was listening to There is a Fountain from my T4G CD.  Wow…it was heavenly! 

Then, comes Tuesday.  My phone rang at 5:55 a.m. with a recorded message telling me I had to go to class at 11 a.m.  Thanks, people.  So I slid to class.  Not once.  Twice.  Of course, the only classes that were mandantory yesterday were the times that I had class.  But, to be honest, I really kind of had fun out there sliding around, pretending to be Kristi Yamaguchi doing triple axels outside the Journalism Building. 

So, my dear siblings in Christ, I leave you with a slideshow of Wainrights’ Icecapades 2009: Day 1. 

I realize many of you are without power.  Oh my goodness, how I wish you were at my house right now.  I want to show you hospitality.  I don’t know if it would be worth risking life and limb to get here, but just remember you’re always welcome.  :o)
