Hammond Bible Clubs

We spent the last week in Hammond, LA heading up a week of Bible Clubs. We praise the Lord that there were 10 clubs with 331 enrolled and 52 saved! The clubs were done in Day Care centers and a Boys and Girls Club. We are grateful to Mrs. Barry Carpenter for doing the leg work to set up the clubs, cook the meals and baby-sit Jonathan. As well as Grandpa and Grandma Carpenter for allowing our group to invade their home for our lunch breaks.

  1. Glad to hear the Bible clubs went well, are going well, whichever it is. We Thomas’ are trying to recover psychologically from the fact that yall came to Arkansas and didn’t come see us. Jessica’s new bird dropped dead form shock when it heard. (Well, the bird died, the reason is unknown. Mine sounded pretty good.)

    Take care.

  2. Praise the Lord! That’s awesome! It’s so encouraging to read about all the wonderful things that God is doing through ya’ll!
    God Bless!

  4. I have no words. My heart is breaking with yours and all I can do is cry to Jesus, “You are good, always…always.”

    Christa’s beautiful face glowed every time I saw her and I cannot imagine how it must be glowing now, in the presence of her Savior!!!

    I am crying out on your behalf and I love y’all so very much!!!

  5. Aaron and Laura,

    You and your family are in our prayers and have been continually since we found out this morning. Please know how many people car for you and are praying for your family.

  6. Jesus is “a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief” (Is. 53:3) “Surely He hath borne our grief and carried our sorrows” (Is. 53:4)

    You never cry alone.

    Praying always.

  7. Hi hon…its Mrs. Harjo. I wanted to come and tell ya’ll that we love you…and that you are in our prayers right now. We were getting ready to see ya’ll at camp next week, and always looking forward to seeing everyone. Your whole family has been a wonderful testimony to us through the years, and your dear sister was such a tremendous blessing to us, and especially to our Native American children. They really loved her a lot, and I want you to know that they were touched by her.
    We love you guys. Please send that love to the rest of your family.
    (((big hugs to you)))

  8. Aaron, on behalf of me and my family, we wanted to let you and your family know that you are in our prayers. “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusteth in Thee.” Isaiah 26:3
    We love you all!

  9. Praying SO HARD for you all. I love you. Hold on to Jesus.

  10. I am still trying to grapple with the news of Christa myself and can’t begin to imagine what you and your family are going through. Impossible. The comment about Isaiah 53:3-4 was a comfort to me and I am praying the God of all comfort will be with you during this time.

    Lines from a couple of hymns, to you, my dear music-loving friends:

    “When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be!…”

    “Oh love that will not let me go, I rest my weary soul in Thee…”

  11. I didn’t know if I should post something but when I say that others had I know I had to. I still have not gotten over the shock of it. I know that I will always have the question “Why” in my mind, but that’s not for me to know. I know where Christa is and that we will see her again, but it still doesn’t change what hapened. I am praying for you, Aaron and Laura as well as you family. We’ll miss her though.
