I'm off!

I am leaving in a couple of hours to drive to Dallas. I will be leaving for the Phillipines very early in the morning. Y'all please pray for me and our entire mission team. Please put each one of us on your prayer lists and the prayer lists at your church. I believe with my WHOLE heart the power of prayer. Please also remember those that we will be going to minister to. Please pray that God opens hearts and minds as only He can.

Those going on the trip are:

Marilyn Bilton
Jan Bishop
Toni Cox (me!)
Sheri Lankford
Mike Bradford
Hilton Hassell
Dennis Morris
Gary Williams

I'm sorry that I have not put out a new episode or posted much, but the preparations for this trip, alongside producing our wonderful Sunrise Service that our church is famous for have been keeping me VERY VERY busy. I have TONS to tell everyone--I got to meet one of my listeners in real life at the Azalea Quilt Show in Tyler. Plus I took lots of great pictures of some very beautiful quilts. I PROMISE I will get everyone caught up as soon as I get back home. We will be flying back in on the 15th. I can't wait to tell everyone all about everything at the quilt show as well as my trip.

Please don't give up on me--I promise I'm not podfading on y'all! I love all of my podcast friends way too much!

I love everyone!

"I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to His service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus." 1 Timothy 1:12-14 (NIV)


  1. Have a safe trip! I look forward to hearing about
    the quilt show & your trip when you return.

    By the way, if you haven't named your machine yet, I think Millie would be a lovely choice. It would sound so pretty when you say it!
    I have a kenmore named Kendra. It was Kenny until my daughter put stickers on it that say Pretty Pretty Princess!
    Keep up the great work!
    Be silly!
