San Antonio


As I mentioned in a previous post, our family had the unique opportunity to minister {through music} in downtown San Antonio.  The outreach had actually been planned for Saturday, but, due to rain, it was postponed for Monday.  The plan was for our family and some people from Living Water Fellowship to minister to people visiting the Alamo.  As it turned our, Monday was very cold.  But, despite the weather, we were able to share the Gospel and lift up the Name of Jesus.  God enable us to play, even though, at times, our fingers were so cold!  But it was worth it to see people, lots of people, standing and listening to the music and sharing.  We did several segments of music, and were blessed to be joined by a group of young people who shared in song and drama. 
 It was such a blessing to be able to proclaim the Gospel like that in the open air of a large city.  


We were able to walk through the Alamo.  It is a beautiful structure.  And not only the building, but the grounds, as well, are incredible!  The old, gnarled trees, the lovely landscaping, the old-time gates and walls- all contribute to the beauty of the old fort and its grounds.

My crazy, amazing brothers.  What can I say?  I love them so much and can't imagine life without any one of them.  I think most people pity me because I have six brothers.  Just this morning, someone said, "So I have to ask, which of the brothers teases his sisters?!"  People ask often about our brothers.  They assume that our brothers tease, annoy, and generally terrorize us, because that's how it is in so many families.  I am grateful to have wonderful brothers who are not only some of my best friends, but who enrich my life with so much love, laughter, joy, and plain ol' fun!  We have so many memories........playing tricks on each other, going on trips togethers, planning crazy late-night rendezvous, getting birthday gifts for each other, and laughing with {and usually at} each other.  I take them for granted, but somehow writing this has reminded me of how very blessed I am by these amazing guys!  


The Riverwalk was beautiful, though chilly!  We enjoyed walking a little bit of it to at least see what it was all about.  It is such a neat place- a pretty little river flowing one level beneath downtown San Antonio.  There were all these cute little shops and restaurants along the river.
