Visitors and DNow

The weekend before Disciple Now here we had two visitors. Katelyn and Kasie came up to see us. They got here Friday night and we really sat around and watched TV. We got them hooked on Prison Break. YES! We had a great time hanging out and not doing alot! Saturday Leslie came up and we (the girls) went shopping. Chad stayed home and watched football. It was a fun weekend and good to see all three of them. Maybe we didn't scare them off and they'll come back to see us! I hope!

This past weekend was Disciple Now. This was the first one with Chad being the "big dog." Josh (Associate) had done a great job of getting things ready before we ever got here. It was a crazy three weeks before Dnow but it was a great weekend. I took off work at noon on Friday and helped Chad get things ready. It was weird being the "wife" but it was fun. Friday we had the guys from Midland lead worship (Woody, Dillow, Clayton, and Whit) and kick things off. Then students went to their houses. We (Chad, Josh, Woody, Whit and I) went around to some of the houses. The students had 2 sessions Friday night. We hit 7 houses Friday night. Saturday morning we started at 8am and got to all the other houses that morning. We ate breakfast as went from house to house! Every house had great food! Then at 1pm the students came up to the church and we had a worship service. Instead of having a speaker Chad lead the students in a prayer time. They prayed for the schools, their friends, and our nation in groups. Then they spread out all across the gym floor and had some time just by themselves. While they did that, there host home parents walked around and prayed the students. It was a great service. After the service they went back to their house and had their last session. Then they came back to watch the Tech and OU game. We had a huge party. Football, give aways, food, candy, games, and movies for those didn't want to watch the game. All in all it was a great party, but because of the way Tech played it was not some much fun. We cleaned up and headed to their houses and called it a night around the 3rd quarter. They came back to church Sunday morning for youth worship service then it ended by going to big church! It was a great weekend. We had great leaders that invested in our students. Looking back it was an incredible weekend and God moved in the lives of students, leaders, and host home parents!
