This past weekend I was able to experience one of the greatest weekends I’ve had in a while. For the first time ever I went to Evangelism University or EU in Savannah TN. This is a weekend for high school students to grow closer to God and learn more about His word. However, even though I’m not a high school student anymore it was still a great experience. My brother, Matthew and his wife Hannah, brought a group from their church in Mississippi and asked me to come along with them. So thankful I did. First, it was a great time to grow closer to God and INCREASE. INCREASE was the theme for this year and it was emphasizing the importance of increasing your relationship with God. Also for me it was a HUGE Freed reunion. As soon as I walked in there were Freed people everywhere! I LOVED IT!! I saw some people that I haven’t seen since they or I graduated. I had so much fun catching up with friends…along with hearing some amazing lessons from some amazing speakers. The key note speakers were David Shannon and Taft Ayers. I had never heard Mr. Shannon before but it was GREAT!!! Taft was great also, he is a great friend of our family and we have been to Honduras together! He is great. The BEST part of the weekend…THE SINGING!!!! WOW!! It was absolutely amazing! It really made me miss Clayton Chapel at FHU! I’m so thankful that I was able to go to EU and hope that I’m able to go back next year.
Prayer Request- Please keep the Hobbs Family in your prayers. They are friends from Mayfield. The father Gary had knee surgery earlier in the week and did great however, he developed a blood clot and it went to his heart and he passed away early this morning. Mr. Gary was a great friend to my mom’s family. He and most of my uncles were great friends and grew up together and always played ball togehter. His sons were in school with my brothers and I. The oldest son, Greg, played baseball with my brothers. He always went to Spring Break trips with us and the baseball team. This is a great family and they are suffering a terrible loss. Pray they lean on God for strength and comfort!! They are really going to need help over the next few days, weeks, months, and even years! Mr. Gary was a fun loving, always laughing guy!! Please pray for Mrs. Rhonda, Greg, & Jonh Hobbs!
