Dad, Jamie (David's Wife), and Mom in front of the door of David's House of
Hope. My brother, David, had a heart for Inside Out Ministries and the Healing Ranch (a place where people who are hurting, who have habits and hangups, can come for healing). David worked very hard in helping to build this house, and he poured his heart into the vision and mission of Inside-out Ministries. We visited the ranch today for a time of fellowship and dedication. Above the door the sign reads "David's House of Hope". I know that my brother would be honored. My prayer is that anyone who enters that door will indeed find the hope that they are looking for....that hope being in Christ Jesus.
David's House of Hope....consists of 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, living area, and kitchen....not yet completed, but well on its way. The beautiful cross in front is stain-glassed; the picture doesn't do it justice, but it's gorgeous. This piece was created by Jan Chipps. She also has many other pieces of art...pottery, metal, cloth, etc....that are simply beautiful, and for sale...proceeds going towards Inside-Out Ministries.

Jamie Sharp giving her testimony and sharing David's heart about the Ranch and
Inside-Out Ministries. She spoke beautifully...even though her heart is
still breaking over the loss of David.

Anna and Luke enjoy their day at 'The Healing Ranch'.

John Mark's Senior Ring!!!

John Mark shows off his senior ring! We sent him on a treasure hunt November 2nd. The hunt consisted of clues which led the prize, the "senior ring". It was a lot of fun, especially because it was raining outside, and John Mark had to search in the rain! The last clue led him to the kitchen where he was to look in the dishwasher. Inside was a beautifully wrapped gift....which held another gift bag, and another , and another, and another. After a lot of laughs, John Mark finally claimed the prize.
And of course, the little siblings had to see if it would fit on their finger. Luke thought it was very nice....he kept saying "awwww". John Mark had a hard time getting it back from Luke....and the chase was on, with Luke yelling, "MINE!"

Anna enjoyed herself trying on Big Bubba's ring.


Anna was a little rodeo queen and Luke was "Woody" from Toy Story. They had such fun trick-or-treating downtown Smackover. They came home with way too much candy...enough to last til next Halloween anyway.
