Back on the Road

Roanoke Valley Christian School Chapel
We are back on the road, after a very busy summer, and have concluded our fourth 4-day THIRST conference of the year in High Point, North Carolina. Needless to say, we have had 4 busy weeks as 2 of our THIRST conferences were at churches that had Christian schools on the property (each one had 700+ students), so not only was our team ministering each evening, but they also taught and led worship during the day at the school chapels. We are currently in our first 8-day SUMMIT of the year in Charlotte, North Carolina, and our team is thankful for the rest we will get on the back end of this Summit before beginning another couple of 4-day conferences. 

Prior to coming back on the road this year, we taught at our Life Action Labor Day family camp. Our retreat campus was full with 28 families (100 children total!!), who made the decision to PAUSE from the daily routine, RECONNECT, and ENGAGE with the Lord and with each other! Our weekend was filled with meaningful worship, Biblical teaching, great food, afternoons on the lake boating, canoeing, swimming, tubing, and evenings around the campfires. You can click here on the word camp and enjoy seeing all that took place!!

Testimonies from Senatobia, MS

We just arrived at First Baptist Church, Oxford, MS. Pray that the Lord would meet us here as we begin our THIRST conference this Sunday, February 3, 2013.


Testimonies from Lifepoint, Senatobia, MS

"I was angry with my husband before I came to the THIRST conference. During my time here, I realized that it was not my husband's fault that I was angry with him. It was my fault. I realized that I was not respecting him. I was not trusting him to be the leader of our home. I was being controlling, mean, and unloving to him. I was led to repent and ask God to forgive me and I also asked my husband to forgive me. I now feel peace in my heart and just relief!! Thank you for your ministry and for coming to Lifepoint."                                    Scarlett Reavis

"Thank you so much for coming to my church and helping me re-awaken and strengthen my relationship with the Lord. The teachings really opened my eyes to the importance of forgiveness, and because God first forgave me, I have no excuse for not forgiving those who have wronged me. "

"This week has been a powerful week. The Lord found me with the need for refreshment that comes from the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Just being able to sit with my wife at service, discuss the sermon at home, and pray together has been so refreshing. It is because of these focused times of repentance and confession that I leave refreshed and filled!"

"I have been sitting on the "pilot light" for awhile now. I feel that these 4 days have woken me up and turned the fire back to where it needs to be. I have been reminded that through my hurts and heartaches, I have a testimony and an ability to use those hurts for the glory of God. This is such an encouragement to me. I will move forward and step into RADICAL living for God. Thank you!"

"When the team came here to Lifepoint, I was drifting in the world, coming to church, but feeling resentful and angry. Being a part of this THIRST conference has reminded me of where my heart really is and to whom I should be looking for help, guidance, and love. That One is Jesus."

"I have felt so hopeless. I didn't want to come. I didn't want to hear anything spiritual and Biblical. I was hurting so bad. But God whispered to me a message of hope. And I heard Him. I walked out the 3rd night knowing whose I am, and I must keep on. I CAN keep on, and finish strong, with God's help!!"

"At the beginning of this week, God found me lonely and controlling in my marriage. I thought I needed to tell my husband how to do everything. I did not realize I was doing this or how disrespectful I was being to him. I also realized how little I trust people because of past hurts in my life. God has opened my eyes to how sinful I am and how gracious and forgiving He is. My eyes and my heart have been opened and I feel a new closeness and trust with my husband. We have been praying together every night."

Testimony from Bartlett, TN

This week has helped reinforce what God has been saying to me. I have idols!
I was called to teach at age 16. I currently teach 2nd grade at a Christian school,
and I become so involved with my students, bringing their problems and paperwork
home. I am having physical problems and my husband and 3 children get what's
"left over." I am consumed with being the best teacher and making the most
difference of any teacher. I am worshipping my job... feeding selfishness and pride.
I got ride of my idols  Sunday evening!1 Praise the Lord!!
