God is Ridiculous & AJ Rocks!

Yep, you read me right. God is ridiculous. I think I said that about 10 times last night. Last night I had the opportunity to speak at Acoustic Jeremiah, a quaint little chapel in the woods where you can hear good music once a month. I spoke there when I was home in August, and last night went much better--we had electricity! And, between Matt and the rest of the awesome people who come out to AJ, the kids in Liberia are in for a treat!
I had a vision for decorating for the night.
I was pretty happy with how it came out.
The music was good. The time that I shared was good (I think, I don't really know what I said...but people were smiling and nodding and reassuring me.) And, God was so good!
I connected with some great people who were really interested in ORR and our ministry in Liberia. Others just wanted to hear stories about the kids. And others wanted to give. The wonderful people at AJ collected 50 bottles of children's vitamins! A random woman gave me 4 bags of hygiene items! I sold 75 bullet crosses, and they want more! I felt comfortable, and I feel like I was really able to share my story and my heart...and the people embraced what they heard. To top it off, Alli Rogers and Justin McRoberts played some great music! And Justin shared his heart about what we, as Christians, are called to do...and I wish I would have recorded it...because the things he said should have been followed by a huge AMEN!
