Red Hot Preaching Conference 2016

The Red Hot Preaching Conference was last week and we have had many wonderful reports. The preaching was amazing! One of the best advantages to hosting a conference is bringing so many like-minded Christians together. Many people came early to the services and stayed late for a wonderful time of fellowship. We had activities for the teens to play laser tag and have pizza. There was also an activity for the singles who went miniature golfing. The Pastors’ wives went a lovely tea house for an afternoon high tea. It was fun, relaxing and encouraging speaking with the other wives. Meanwhile the Pastors went to the park with the children and grilled for lunch.

My husband and I were so thrilled by how many people took part in soul-winning all throughout the days of the conference. On Saturday we had a 195 people show up for soul-winning. The highest attendance for one of the preaching services was 284.  We are so thankful for all the help we had throughout the conference. We had so many volunteers to help clean, set up, bring food for fellowship after the services, providing rides and lodging for the guests, making extra maps for soul-winners and many other things.

The Red Hot Preaching Conference was amazing but also very tiring attending all the services, activities and soul-winning. We had planned a camping trip with my husband’s family for a couple days after the conference and it was a great time for some much needed rest. The camp ground was very secluded and we had access to a lake by ourselves. The kids loved the lake and we swam all day long. In the evening we sang hymns around the campfire and made s’mores. It was a wonderful time to get away. Being outdoors in nature is so refreshing and relaxing.
