Burnsview Baptist Church, Greer, SC

We had the opportunity to attend Burnsview Baptist Church for the BLEXIT Conference as well as listen to Erik Corcoran speak on Sunday morning there this past weekend.  It was a refreshing time of unified patriotism with like-minded Christians.  It was packed! We thank Burnsview’s pastor, Tim Huckaby, for his bold stand in the community!  Erik Corcoran recently started a movement called SC-We The People which has already attracted thousands of South Carolinian patriots.

Luke Wins County Council Primary!

We’re so happy that Luke won the Laurens county council Republican primary tonight! There is no Democrat running in our district, and so this was the biggest part of the race. We’re very proud of Luke and of the fact that he gives God the glory for his win tonight!

If you want to see the moment Luke finds out he won, and his touching prayer, you can see it on Facebook here:

We are so excited to share this patriotic video with y’all that we made for Luke’s campaign for County Council! We were all able to be a part of it and had a lot of fun doing it. We want to wish you all a blessed Memorial Day weekend, and we hope you get to spend this time with your families and take time to remember our veterans and those who have died to preserve our great country!! God Bless America!

The Cross of Jesus, Easter 2020

Although we may be housebound, that doesn’t stop us from worshipping the Savior of the world this Easter time.  Luke’s friends in Laurens came up with an idea for families to put lit crosses in front yards.  They were interviewed on the news the other day, and it has really taken off!  There are now thousands of Crosses! Praise Jesus!

Home Church

On Wednesday night, we had the opportunity to watch our church’s live online service with a small group of some of our friends at our house! We enjoyed being able to fellowship with others during this time. Unfortunately, due to the situation, some of our musical engagements have been postponed to a later date. We will keep y’all posted! We will be singing on Sunday evening March 29th for our church’s online service. Y’all can watch any of our church’s great services online every Wednesday at 6:30 PM, Sunday morning at 9:30 and 10:45 AM, and Sunday evening at 6:00 PM! We have included the website links below.

In Memory of Wes Hansen

Thank you, Mrs. Hansen, for asking us to sing and play at your dear husband’s funeral.  He loved Jesus Christ and served him faithfully to the end.  We all look forward to seeing him again one day in our Heavenly Home in “Beulah Land”!

DEATH’S DOOR

Our first year experiencing Death’s Door was incredible!  The presentation was a huge blessing and the turnout each of the three nights was awesome.  My two littler sisters, Susanna and Phebe, were even convinced to be angels on the last night of the presentation.  They did a great job!  Our whole family is looking forward to helping out even more next year!

As you can see below, the pillar that I (Luke) am toting was no easy task.  Sadly though, it turns out it was just some foam covered in plaster!  I really thought I was getting somewhere with my workouts.  🙂

Good News Spectacular!

Some of us are involved in a Good News Club at a local elementary school.  It’s a wonderful way to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with kids. Our family had the opportunity to volunteer for the Good News Spectacular at the TD Convention Center on Saturday, and we had fun making over a thousand snow cones!  What a great turnout!

Hollywild

We had a fun time going to Hollywild for their Christmas lights! We had a blast, and we appreciated how they displayed the Ten Commandments to the Salvation message. We had a great time looking at all the animals. We also enjoyed being able to pet the bison and the zebras.

  

Ringing and Singing!

Some of us were able to ring the bell for The Salvation Army. We had a fun time singing Christmas carols while we rang! If you’d like to see one of our favorite Christmas movies, check out Silver Bells (2013) with Bruce Boxleitner. It’s funny and sweet and gives an insight into The Salvation Army.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Recital

We have had a wonderful week! Priscilla held her annual Christmas Recital at our home with two of her sisters, Susanna and Phebe, participating. What a great turnout! Priscilla was thankful for the over 60 folks that came out to enjoy the children playing and the food and fellowship afterwards. What a great bunch of kids!!

It came as a great shock to us that we got snow! Susanna and Phebe made two snowmen and we named one “Benji”, and Mama called the other one “Benny” (in honor of the storm Benji).
