Greetings to you and your family as we are celebrating the Resurrection of our wonderful Lord and Savior today!  We hope that you will have or have had (depending on when you read this) a blessed day praising, worshipping, and giving much thanks to God today!

Our family is doing very well and the kids have had have been going egg crazy.  For the past two weeks they have been dying and eating eggs and getting even enjoying wearing their bunny ears!  We have also been blessed to read with them at night before bed and share about how much Jesus loves them and what Easter is all about.  Both of them got to attend a great egg hunt and children’s outreach that Erin’s Parents’ church put on yesterday where they hunted eggs and then heard a great devotion too.

This past week we enjoyed great turn outs for our weekly FCA Huddles at the Lee County Middle and High schools.  Andy was able to share with the teens about how Christ’s resurrection should be something that excites them and causes them to want to share it with all they come in contact with!  We also have begun raising funds for our students to go to FCA Leadership Camp at Campbellsville University again this summer.  Please pray for us as we need to raise around $2,200 to pay for camp fees and transportation costs for students and chaperones.  Pray that God would show you if you could possibly partner with us financially in taking students to camp!

Erin and Judah!

At the Rec Center our winter bowling leagues are starting to wind down in the next few weeks.  Please pray with us that most of our bowlers will stay with us and bowl in summer leagues.  Without their commitment it makes finances to run the Rec Center much tougher to get in the summer time.

Also, please be praying for us as we are getting ready to have our Annual Golf Scramble Fundraiser for the Rec Center on May 10th.  We are looking for sponsors to help sponsor holes at this event and we also need golfers and golf carts too!   Another prayer request for this event is that we will have nice weather for a great turnout!

IMG_2267This past Friday, Andy had the opportunity to participate in the West Irvine Elementary career day.  This is the elementary school where Andy’s sister Amanda teaches and their he had the opportunity to share with the kids about helping in their communities and public service.  While sharing about these issues, He was able to tell the kids all about the ministries of Kentucky Mountain Mission.  Especially those about The Lee County Recreational Center and Youth Haven Bible Camp.  The kids seemed to enjoy the presentations and several said they are coming to camp this summer and hope to come bowl with us soon!

God is truly working here and we thank you for your partnership in our these ministries!
