In other news, Stephen has a job! He is the new CLC Director for FBC Sylacauga!!! The CLC is the Christian Life Center, which is basically the recreation/gym/lobby area of the church. This is such a huge answer to prayer for us. He has been looking for a job for quite a while now, and God just placed this one in his lap out of the blue. We literally had no prospect in sight and were praying that God would provide a job for him on Wednesday night, and then Thursday while Stephen was up at the church Pastor Tim asked him if he'd like to take the position. When Stephen called and told me the good news, all I could think was, "God is amazing and He has totally answered our prayers." Now we just need to find a new job for me!
We also got to go down to Tuscaloosa this morning to see our dear friends and celebrate the birthday and ministry of Keith Pugh. This family is so special to Stephen and me. Kameron was Stephen's best man in our wedding, KJ married us, and Keith & Teresa read scripture during the wedding. It was great to see all of them and their respective families and to join in the celebration of leadership and a life devoted to God and ministry. It was a great encouragement to hear testimonies of how God has used the Pugh family, and specifically Keith, to impact others for the Kingdom. In many ways Stephen and I pray our marriage and ministry will mirror the Pughs. They have been a godly example to us and we are forever thankful for them.
