Thank God!

Just a few weeks ago Mom mentioned that it would be fun to do a dance performance at Mount Hope Church, (a very big church in our area). She kept feeling like God was telling her to call the church and see if they needed any entertainment for the 50+ers group there. Mom didn't do it at first, but God kept on prompting her and saying, "How can I do anything if you don't do your part?"

So, she finally called the Church. Someone called Mom back and discussed the topic with her. After a little explaining about what our performance consists of, the Lady said, "How early of a notice do you need? Would you be able to do it on April 16th?" Mom looked at the calender and answered, "Yes we are open on that day." Mrs. Wardlaw said, "The person that was scheduled to do the entertainment for that night just cancelled on Friday because of some health issues, and you will never believe what she was suppose to be doing. Telling Irish stories! I think that this is an answer to my husband's and my prayers!"

Now we are going to do a performance there on April 16th. So please keep us in your prayers that we would be a great witness for God! Also let's pray for the person who was suppose to do the entertainment, that she would get better.

There is still another thing that is wonderful about the date of the performance! We were suppose to have the cast party for the musical we are in on that day, and it just been changed to the day after because of a conflict!

"But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord." (Numbers 14:21)

Saint Patrick's Day

We did a lot of dance presentations some were with our dance class, but our family likes to do some on our own too.

You see, Mom didn't think that it was enough just to do a few competitions and a recital once a year and we needed to use our talent to bring glory to God. Then Mom saw a advertisement for an Irish tea in our area and she decided to look into it and see if they had any entertainment. It so happened, that they didn't and were happy to have us come and dance for them!

The great thing is, that we don't only dance and share Irish history, we always make sure to add scripture into the program and afterwards pass out the Mally's Saint Patrick's Day tracts. People love it and always ask us to come back!

The last presentation that we did was on Friday the 19th. The people were liking it so much that Mom asked me to tell the story of how we started memorizing scripture (the one that I told at Leaders Training). After the show, a lady came up to me and said, "I have memorized my favorite verses from the Bible, but I have never memorized a whole chapter." I said, "I really think that you should try!" She answered, "I am going to, what you said really encouraged me!" I was so excited to see the fruit of our labour and very glad that I was ready and willing to share the story of how we started memorizing! Usually people will just blow the story off and say that it is too hard for them and we just have been gifted, but I always think, how can they memorize a whole scene from a movie and say that they can't memorize Scripture... our spiritual food!

I can't wait to hear something about your Saint Patrick's Day!
