02-19-14-RB-As everyone worshipped aloud in one voice, I was struck by the beauty of what we will someday experience in heaven. People from all over the globe gathered together praising God. This afternoon, we launched our small groups for the first time. I was so privileged to hear their stories as well as hold their hands and pray over them. Tomorrow I will be doing hair styling and am so looking forward the conversations that The Lord is already impressing upon our hearts.
