Brothers & Sisters!
I am so very excited to FINALLY share that through many years of prayer - my husband and I are leading CR together!! Ever since I graduated from CR 7 years ago and started Co-leading I have had the dream of leading CR with my husband.
I have had to learn to not "push" him and surrender that if it was Gods will - then God would move his heart. I remember a day that I finally prayed - "God, if it is not my husband that you would have lead the Men's CR Group, then please raise someone up who will have a heart for the ministry and for the men".
It was then that I believe God started to move in my husband’s heart. He has for the past 3 years attended the CR Leaders Retreat with me as a support. It was last year at the retreat 2007 in So Cal. that he felt called by God to lead!! He knew I would jump up and down and do cartwheels - so he told me what he was feeling in the "food line" That God was calling him to lead and felt as though every lesson and class that weekend was directed at him.
He has been attending training classes since February of this year and is now leading a group of men in the IE!!!
PRAISE BE TO GOD " Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men"
Jay & I are truly a team and I cannot wait to see how CR will grow, how the people will grow, how our marriage will grow and how the faith of all those in CR will grow.
Please pray for God to move powerfully through the IE as I know He already has.
Your sister and faithful servant in Christ!
