Hello to everyone! Today is my 4th day and it is an awesome one! How can I ever begin to thank you all for the sacrifice and total outpouring of love that I was blessed to experience over the past three days? I Began today at the breakfast table with my family, biological that is, with thanksgiving and prayer and reading from Gods word. I awoke with a greater and deeper understanding of Gods love for me and a new energy that I am having trouble putting into words. This past weekend was a deeply moving and emotional one for me and I have emerged with an even greater desire to share Gods truth and love with the lost. To step out further and bolder than befofe as the Lord has been nudging me to do, while being in step with the Holy Spirit and willing to go wherever he takes me. I feel a renewed stregth to continue to face the enemy head on without fear and to pull people from the flames. I love serving the Lord and all of you served him this weekend with the highest level of righteousness and the fruit of your labor and faithfulness will bear witness. Thank you and I look forward to fellowshipping with you again. JJ

Happy Fourth, today, tomorrow and always!!! Indescribable weekend, thank you all so much! I love and miss you all! :) RF

The tears come so much easier now, how liberating! I have never been able to do that around people. My heart is softer and the chains have been broken! JJ
I let down the walls around me...looking at everything with Jesus in my heart with a whole different light... It's amazing
My son asked me to pray with them before I left my house this morning.... Wow that's all!! JQ

"I am just awakening to a new day, but my heart and mind are filled with thoughts of this past Agape weekend. This weekend was so wonderful. I am having a hard time articulating what I am feeling and what I witnessed. The changed lives and of course all the ladies I served with on Chapel (we rocked) stand out on the top of my list. But it is also how each team and each person contributed to the weekend. The candidates came with hunger and an open heart, and left filled and changed forever. Each person working the weekend served with everything they had. The Lord was lifted up in an amazing way this weekend. I am so honored and blessed to have been a part of Agape 22. I love you all so much!" ~Patty
