Blessings Friends and Family,
This has been a very blessed yet unique year with a lot of changes. As 2017 opened, Jill's dear 88-year-old mother was declining and took her journey to Heaven in February. Although we have missed her this year, we were so happy she was released from intense pain & suffering, and rejoiced with her as she greeted her husband, parents, siblings and grandson who had gone before her.
This brought a lot of unplanned time spent in St. Louis helping Jill's family with funeral arrangements, going through her mother's house, preparing it for sale and then finally selling it a month ago. Thankful!
Along with these and other family adjustments, we were so blessed to celebrate our three grandsons' birthdays, Jayce 2, Charlie 5, Kingston 8. What a Joy :)
We had an amazing year of ministry, leading worship at nine Andrew Wommack Ministries conferences taking us from California all the way to the UK. Through the year we saw thousands touched as we worshipped together and witnessed them connect with Jesus through God's Word spoken and sung. The Lord touched so many in wonderful ways!
We are grateful for the opportunity to minister with Andrew & Jamie Wommack in these conferences and are excited to have nine conferences already planned for 2018. Keep an eye on our website for details and make plans to attend!
We also had the privilege to share at our home church here in Jacksonville, Florida as well as several other churches around the country and the UK. What a joy to minister in these churches on a heart-to-heart level and sing special songs of deliverance, bringing healing to broken hearts.
We were also blessed to lead worship in several Living Waters Teaching retreats with Richard & Linda Case. These are ALWAYS so enriching in small-group settings, and are life-changing moments for all who attend!
In August we travelled to Nicaragua with Ambassadors To The Nations hosted by Darey and Karen Jolly and a team of over 50. Wow! It was a fabulous time reaching out to hundreds of children in ATTN-sponsored schools, as we sang our songs in Spanish. Special thanks to Robin Sheffield, our office assistant, who is fluent in Spanish and helped us get ready for this trip! Be praying with us for a Spanish CD to surface in the future!! :)
We were also grateful to get away for a couple of weeks and work on writing songs in preparation for a new CD we are planning for 2018. Although our songwriting was disrupted with hurricane Irma hitting Jacksonville where our kids and grandkids were hunkered down, we still accomplished much and are grateful that our kids and homes were safe! We are planning much more time to finish the songs and have them recorded in 2018. New Songs for a New Year. Now that has a ring to it. :)
As the year comes to a close, we want to say a special thank you to our monthly partners and all of you who have supported our ministry in practical ways as well as in prayer. We so appreciate you and know we could not do what we do without your support.
Charlie & Jill
Also a high five to our ministry team from around the world, helping us help others with God's Word in Song: Jennifer Kutscher, John & Susan Donnelly, Garry Townsley, Carly Hartman, Cherrie Dye. Thank You!!!
