Last Friday afternoon I drove to St. Louis so that I could be at the last night of campmeeting. Apparently I woke up late for a reason that morning and didn't have time to pack everything in the car before I left for work. Plus I had to get my oil changed. I had been driving for almost an hour when traffic came to a complete standstill. I was kind of irritated for a few minutes until I realized what happened then I was very thankful that God had allowed me to be delayed that morning. As we crept upon the accident, I noticed that they had to call the LifeFlight Helicopter out and the car that had been wrecked was on its side with the entire roof of the car dangling off and all the glass was shattered. Who knows why I was delayed that morning but I believe God was keeping his angels of protection on me that day! Thank You Jesus!!! HE is sooo good to us!!! (I didn't get any pictures at Campmeeting....I know, I know....don't be too shocked. LOL)

Last night, Sarah and I went to Crown Center. Every Friday night in July they feature a different classical movie. Last nights feature was "Singing in the Rain". We both loved it! It was amazing!! It was awesome sitting outside on the lawn listening to the water fountains and everything while we were watching the movie. It was definitely a classic. If you haven't seen it-you should. You'll love it!
I know this is a little late. lol But, the 4th this year was pretty interesting! ha About noon, I met up with Jonathon and we went to Weston, Missouri and went into some of the old, quaint shops there. We wanted to do something different...and thats what we came up with. lol So, as we were leaving...it started pouring down rain, but the rain would come and go for quite a while. So later that afternoon we decided we were going to go to Worlds of Fun (an amusement park here in KC) even tho we knew it might rain. The storm was moving pretty fast so we figured it would be okay. Well, we got there and we were taking a picture before we went into the park, so that we could leave the camera and the rest of our stuff in the trunk. To make a long story short, we locked the keys in the trunk on accident and we had already locked the car. By this time, it had started to rain again, so we tracked a security guard down and they were going to send someone to help us. She said it would only be 5-10 minutes so we were like well we'll just wait here because by the time we get down to the gate then we'll have to walk back. A hour and a half passed and no one showed up!! And we were just standing there getting drenched this whole time! ha Needless to say...3 hours and a locksmith later, we got back in the car! ha By this point we lost all interest in actually going in the park, so we just left and ordered pizza. Later that night, we watched the fireworks in Parkville. It's all goodness! :)

I just had to put this picture on here! If only you knew these wonderful people-- Bro Steve and Sis Debbie Saiz!! They mean the world to me!! They are the National Singles Directors for the UPCI. I first met them on the very first SAM (Single Adult Ministry) trip I went on, which was a Caribbean Cruise. And have been on several more SAM trips since then. Each time I see them and are around them-the more I love them. They have the most wonderful spirit. They inspire and encourage me. I love to hear Sis Saiz speak-she always gets down to the deepest part of your heart. God is using them in such a mighty way to minister to single adults and I just appreciate them so much!!
Bro & Sis Saiz...thank you so much for everything you do. I'm sure people don't tell you that as often as you need to hear it. I love and appreciate you guys so much. I love hearing your testimony about how God brought you two together! :) Maybe one day soon we'll take you up on the offer and be able to come out there and spend a few days in wonderful Cali! :) By the way, it was SO good to see you in Memphis!! :)

I just got back from going to the Memphis Power of One Singles Conference. It was awesome! God did so many great things in the services this week. It was incredible! Not only that, but we were able to meet SOO many new friends and saw many other friends as well!!! We had soo much fun and I am so thankful that we got to go!! Some of our group that we hung out with was able to go a little early and see some of the Elvis Presley stuff--but we weren't able to go and see hardly of Memphis at all. But thats okay-it was well worth the trip. :) Enjoy the pictures! :)
