What's Up With The Harrod Family?


Since January started I have been real busy getting school started back again. For those who want to know:
Zach is 16 will be 17 in March
Zeke is 15 will be 16 in May
Zoi is 14 will be 15 in October
Zeb is 12 will be 13 in February
Zena (like the flower) is 11 will be 12 in October
Loty and Nora are 9 and will be 10 in September

Bro. Harrod has been busy making out our 2018 Singing and Evangelism schedule. There is a lot that goes into scheduling. For example he is making up a list that goes by area code so that we don't schedule two places that are too far apart. This will make things easier to accomplish. So far Bro. Harrod is preaching a mission's conference and a revival for the first time. This is very exciting to see new areas of ministry opening up but also he takes this task very seriously and would appreciate if you start praying with us now for souls to be saved and changed.

OUR GOALS for 2018:

*This year we want to be able to make some music C.D.'s
(In order to do this we need to buy some recording equipment: a new sound board and wireless microphones and smaller more portable speakers)
*We are praying for more supporting churches
* We are planning on making our bus more travel friendly.
(heating and a.c. working, bunk beds, under carriage storage added etc.)
* Be in 100 churches this year.

We would like to be a blessing everywhere we go. and to see souls saved as well as encouraged to serve with more vigor along our journey. Please pray for our safety on the road and our health. We need to keep strong healthy bodies on our journey. This alone can be a challenge with 7 children as you can imagine, but with God all things are possible!

 We are very thankful for the prayer warriors that prayed our ministry along since we started back in April. We never take you for granted and are praying for you as well!

Georgetown Memories!

We were welcomed to the Harvest Baptist church in Georgetown, Texas by our long time friends the Hollifeilds. The church was welcoming and warm and we went to setting up the sound equipment. Half of us were still groggy from waking up early and from being under the weather a bit. I was praying that everyone would keep their singing voice because on the way over there were some squeeks going on and I was uncertain of how we would end up sounding.Prayers were going up about our voices would come through clear and plain so that the people would be encouraged in the Lord!

We got things set up and tested and began to see others arrive and got to hug on my cousins I hadn't seen in a while and some I had seen also. A sweet family of visitors arrived and brought a precious baby in to join us, it was so nice to see some more faces and to meet them after services.

We got up and sang and we were a little more quiet than usual but still audible and no one lost their voice. God answers prayers. Bro. Harrod preached a sermon on Christmas and all of the things that we can learn from it and it was great some things that I hadn't even thought of before were brought out. I'm glad God gave me a man who will stand up and preach even if it it isn't popular. It was really good!

After church we went to eat and spent some great time with family and friends. It is very comforting to my heart to be in churches that have my blood family as well as my Christian family. Thanks Bro. Zing for inviting us to come! It was also super good to see Mrs. Amidon there she a sweet lady and cousin. God is good. It is has been hard loosing my Mother but God sends comfort along the way!
