I rode in on the wind (or against it) to Lovington, NM, back again after 20 years.
When I was last there, my son, Philip was helping me with ministry to children as a 16 year-old. Now He is 36 and the father of 5. Time does fly.
I enjoyed working with Rev. Vergil Ichertz. He is deeply committed to the faith and has an intense love for the people in his congregation. I was blessed to be in ministry along side him.
I greatly enjoyed the fellowship with the folks in Lovington. I don’t know when I have ever eaten better. There was a member on staff who could be a professional chef. She rolled out many great meals with noon luncheons and dinners at night. Wow!
Worship was a blessing. There was a hunger for the Word and great appreciation for the stories.
Rev. Ichertz was very excited about the fruit as he prepares to baptize several new members as a result of our time together. I love harvest time.
BibleQuest was fun. The boys and girls loved singing the BQ songs and hearing the stories.
In addition to working with the BQ children, I had nearly 110 boys and girls in the after-school program on Wednesday. This church has a real desire to see boys and girls in the community come to faith in Christ and they invest a great many hours and dollars into this outreach.
It was a delight to be back in Lovington and find the desire to move into a hopeful future. Pray with me for the continued move of His Spirit among these wonderful Christian people.
