It’s a Party. A Pizza Party. Cha-Cha-Cha!

The past two weekend sleepovers have been so much fun, and so much CHRIST, we decided to keep it going and have another sleep over party this weekend.  The “theme”…  Make Your Own Pizza.

We decided to have people come over and make their own pizzas…  We had several toppings to choose from and the Llama even loaded his up with anchovies…  YUCK.  But, I guess I shouldn’t judge, right?

Anyhow, even though we were expecting some real curve-balls (kitchen fire, pizza’s on the floor, running out of pizza stuff, etc) it all went amazingly smoothly – PRAISE GOD!

Much of the reason it went so well was because my wonderful (and might I add stunning) wife helped out with our littlest ones (Proverbs 31:10), making sure no hands went into the oven and because our friends Steve & Heather Miller took over the responsibilities of getting pizzas in-and-out of the oven safely and well-cooked.  We didn’t even have to ask – thanks (Philippians 2:4)!

It was great to witness a family (that was recently wounded) coming together peaceably, allowing a dad to spend some time with his kids he doesn’t often share time with…  It was great to be able to minister to a young disciple, on fire to serve the Lord by serving his community, who is facing the attacks of the slanderer (1 Peter 5:8)…  It was beautiful to witness a struggling Christian in a tough situation making new friends;  friends who are stronger in the Word of God…  I could go on, and on – GOD IS GREAT!

But my favorite part of the weekend, of this “Disciple Day” actually came the next morning when the four boys I mentioned in my last post were back and continued to learn about their Lord & Savior Jesus Christ…  WOW!

Praise the Lord, for He alone is Good!
