Easter Weekend

I hope that all of you have had a weekend like mine! It was wonderful! Dan and I were both off work Friday, so we had a long weekend together. Those are the best. :) It rained all day Friday, so we just went shopping and got some much needed clothes for all of us. At Once Upon A Child, I bought Landon 12 outfits and 2 pairs of shoes for $38! Love that place!
It was supposed to storm all day Saturday, but the Lord held back the rain and made it an absolutely beautiful day! We were able to go the zoo and take some spring pictures of Landon. He had a blast at the zoo. His favorite animals were the turtles and the seals. We let him walk around in the aquarium. He found a turtle inside one of the tanks and kept trying to touch it. It was so cute!
Easter Sunday was wonderful! We had great services at church and had lots of visitors. Pastor gave a very clear salvation message. We're praying that someone there was saved or will get saved. I missed being with my family, but I'm very thankful for a church family that I enjoy being with. I am going to miss them all when we start our church in Cranberry!
It's been a while since I've posted, so let me catch you up on a few things. We now have a building to meet in for the church. It is a community center, only two years old. It is the nicest building we have found and it is also the cheapest. The Lord has answered that prayer! Our Bible study is still going good. We haven't had any new people show up, but the ones that do come have been faithful. One couple hasn't been in a couple of weeks because of work.
I have begun babysitting a new girl. Her name is Nadia and she is very sweet. She's two years old. Pray for her mom, Jill. She just found out that she has cancer. They say that they can just go in, get it and be done with it. Pray that the Lord will use this to bring her to Him. It's not a coincidence that the Lord put them in our lives just two weeks before she was diagnosed. Please help us pray that we will be a testimony to her and her family.
