Pizza Dinner

Last night we had some men from the part time preacher's help program over for dinner.  It was a fun evening and a great time for Jon to get to know these men on a more personal level.  They are a great group of mature men.  One even travels from the country of Moldova to attend and two others come from Kazakhstan!  Pretty amazing how hungry these men are for God's word!

Jon and Natalie, Fantastic! It was so great to see the pictures and think of men hungry for God coming together in your home, and coming to learn, and study, and seek more to proclaim Jesus Christ and him crucified. God is greatly blessing you with both the opportunity to teach, and to fellowship having your own home open for Jesus' sake. You are blessed! And I'm Praising God with you.

Having come to love that part of the world and knowing some of the history, I was awed to see these honorable men who love God and His word enough to deny self and take up the cross for the oppotunity to study.

Thanks for all the two of you do to proclaim the name of Christ. More and more I understand the value of well taught men who will then teach others. You're a blessing, Jon. And Natalie, I love what an intentional wife and mother you are while still offering hospitality when opportunities present themselves. You're an inspiration!

With love,

Hello Natalie,

I stumbled onto your blog, what a wonderful gem! You have a beautiful family and beautiful heart that desires to see God's word taken to the "wilderness" places. My prayers go out to you and your family. :-)
