Time in Anacortes
In August of 2014, Wendy and I were attending a healing conference at Charis Bible College in Woodland Park, Colorado. On the first night of the conference, we went early to get seats near the front and a few minutes before it started this young couple came up the aisle looking for seats. They didn’t exactly fit the typical demographic for the conference and I could see them looking for seats close to the front. As they went back to the back I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Go get them and ask them to sit with you.” We did and we immediately became friends with Michael and Heidi St. George.
Michael and Heidi had been struggling with a number of things physically and one of Michael’s friends told him to listen to Andrew Wommack. After listening they came to the conference hoping for a miracle. They got it! Michael gave his life to Christ, Heidi experienced some mighty power from the Holy Spirit that knocked her into a fit of laughter on the floor and both of them were healed! Michael ate his first cheeseburger in a few years while we were there having been healed from a gluten intolerance.
After we both returned home God put it on my heart to stay in touch with and disciple Michael. We started meeting daily and eventually weekly. During that time Michael decided to get baptized! But what do you do when you need to baptize someone who is 2,700 miles away?? Here is the answer:
This was the first time since then Wendy and I have been able to visit with Michael and Heidi (and now little Noah). It was fun hanging out, enjoying fellowship, letting the kids play together and seeing some sites. It was long overdue!
On Our Way Home!
We left Anacortes (the furthest point from home) on July 11 and headed East. We stopped for the night in Couer d’Alene, ID. I will say, northern Idaho and the very western part of Montana so far are among my favorites when beauty, weather, hills, trees, and wildlife are all taken into account.
Today we arrived in Glacier National Park and spent some time going up through Logan’s pass. The scenes were absolutely amazing! We saw Black Bear, Mountain Goat, Mountain Sheep, Marmots, and Mountain Squirrels. The panoramic views of the rivers and valleys were simply amazing. I strongly encourage you to see it if you have not.
Tomorrow we head south to the entrance of Yellowstone, spend a day there, and then to a final few days taking it easy in Rapid City, SD. Only 9 days until we see Tennessee again. It seems time has gone so fast.
