A FOND FAREWELL
It was such a pleasure this last week, to help Don and Samantha move into their new home in Fort Jones. While we at RTCC are saddened to see them leave, we rejoices with the Smith family on their new home, to which they have prayed for, for quite some time. To say that we will miss them would be a huge understatement, if it were not for Dons knowledge and dedication, we wouldn’t have this web site. Don has been an elder for the church for the past two years, in charge of technology and, web design and maintenance. I recently sat down with Don, and talk to him about our web site, and learned that when he started working on it, he had no past experience or training in web development, but with a teachable spirit and the Lord Jesus at his side, Don slowly started to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Those who have followed our web site remember the transitions it’s undergone from it’s first appearance, to what we have now. Thank you Don for your diligence, hard work, and patience. Samantha has been our nursery leader, youth Sunday school teacher, friend, counselor, mother, confidant, and much more to the youth in our church, and will be greatly missed by the children she has taught. To find a replacement for Don and Sam will be difficult at best for the leaders of the church, but we trust that the Lord will bring for the right person to fill both these critical positions. We at RTCC want to wish the Smith a loving farewell, as they turn the page to a new chapter in their “Adventures in Christ” book. May the Lord bless you and keep you: the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift His countenance upon you, and give you peace. Num. 6:24-26. Below are some pictures we took of their new home. Sorry, none of the large pond behind the house (which Don has promised to fill and stock with fish over the next couple of years, men’s retreat here we come)
EVER WONDERED WHAT REVIVAL MIGHT LOOK LIKE ON THE RANCH?
We are having a very special showing of “Appalachian Dawn” this Sunday, July 2nd at 10 a.m. This documentary follows the town of Manchester, Kentucky though it’s early development, to it’s spiraling fall, to desperation, to it’s delight in the Lord through transformation revival. We will see 2 chron. 7:14 played out in this powerful video of Gods mighty work of revival and manifest presence in this community. Come join us as we look into what we can do to ask Jesus and the Holy Spirit to move in our community, to forgive our sins and heal our land. A short discussion after the video will be focused on Matthew 14:22-33, and how important it is for us to learn from the disciples struggles to make headway fighting against turbulent sea’s, and what we can do to avoid fighting against the tide through prayer for Gods grace, mercy and manifest presence here on the Ranch.
