Ok.....so Passing the Mantle Conference.....was AMAZING.... Not even gonna lie!!! It started Thursday night and Pastor preached...and it was more geared to the "younger generation". But it was amazing and he of course did a really good job. Friday night....worship was out of this crazy world. IT ROCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After service, we hosted "The Feast"...for singles Ages 18-36. It went really good and we had almost 40 people come! Saturday night worship was also amazing...sang a new song..."Redeemed"..It was awesome! And right after worship and before Gateway ensemble sang..Pastor had everyone the age of 30 and younger to come up to the altar area and all the ministers went to the platform and prayed for everyone...that the mantle would be passed to us....and that we would receive it and commit ourselves to working for God. It was an amazing moment. There was about 200 or more that went up there. Today, was amazing. There were tons of people that got healed. For worship we sang, "Praises", "All For Love" which was amazing, and another one...and Gateway chorale sang a couple of songs. The service was awesome. In the middle of the preaching Bro Stoneking said that he felt he needed to pray for the sick. And that was the end of the sermon...it just broke out into a big altar call. There was an AMAZING touch of the power of God that just fell in that place!!!! This was an amazing moment and I will NEVER forget this weekend!
***These pictures are all that I got....there will be more to come as I gather some from other people!***

This weekend, I was able to go spend the weekend with one of my best friends, Jennifer! We had alot of fun and had some very relaxing time together! :) Friday night after I flew into Nashville we went to the Opryland Hotel. WOW!!! It is absolutely amazing! If you are ever in Nashville....you have to go see this hotel....it is a must!!! lol It was like a mall and a forest all in one!! haha Then we saw the Opry House and walked around there for a little while. We had quite the adventure back to her house! ha It was a pretty long drive and we kept "seeing" things....so we thought! haha Glad we made it there safe! Saturday we slept in a little bit and ate at Chic-fil-A.....YUM!!! We don't have those here in Kansas City. Then we took a drive up into the Smokey Mountains! WOW! It was sooo beautiful!!!! This weekend was the first of their peak season! The colors were so vibrant and amazing!!! I think we even crossed the North Carolina border in the mountains!! LOL We were so relaxed on the drive back down the mountains that we were getting very sleepy! ha Sunday, we went to church then drove back to Nashville to catch the flight. Before we went to the airport we went to Centennial Park...which was also beautiful!! I had a great time and am so thankful for Jennifer! She is one of the best!!! Love you sis!!

Monday, October 1st..brought many tears. Both happy and sad tears. The Cantrells left for Africa....for 1 year...doing Missions work. I am so happy for them but I was so sad to see them go. They are now there and getting settled in. I miss them soooooo much. I love you guys. This was one of the hardest things ever. We were all bawling at the airport. But I know great things are going to come of them being there and I can't wait to hear about it!! (These pictures are a collection of their last week in the States).
This past week I was able to go to General Conference!! It was in Tampa, Florida. We had SO MUCH FUN!!!! The services were amazing and we saw TONS of people that we knew...and met knew friends as well!! Between Linda and I we had over 500 pictures! haha So I'm obviously not going to put them all up but here are alot of them! I am so glad I got to go. We were able to go to Clearwater Beach one morning, while we were there. It was amazing!! The sand was just so soft and white. Enjoy the pics!
