Part 2
Hi Everyone!
Our time in March was really an amazingly exciting trip! And I know it's kind of old news, but such cool things happened that I still do have to tell you about them! :)

I left you off with.... mmmm, the Seniors' luncheon at the Southshore Baptist Church...

Now we're on our way to Barre Vermont. We've entered the state and our van starts quitting on us again as we drive. So we start praying for it and God sent His angels again to push us the next few hours to get us to the church [ didn't have time to stop to fix it or we would miss the concert]. The van kept going till we passed the church accidently... and then the truck died! We turned around and it started again then pulled into the church parking lot! lol Golly.... Praise the Lord! :)

Anyways, so then we got all set up and WOW what an exciting night. I mean, it was so cool that God would pour out His Spirit on a place just because people invite Him. We didn't do anything to deserve His visiting, He just saw fit to come and bring revival to our hearts. Isn't that super neat?

( a smaller but still significant part of the night was that Gabe had laringhitis...laharanghitis, laryngitis?...*sigh* I could never figure that one out ... anyways, he had that and God got him through everything including Rudy! :)

Also, there were so many neat testimonies that people shared with us... and we just praise God for what He's done in their lives!

We got to stay with some really super sweet people who just gave so much of their time and energies and went far beyond the call of duty (going to bed late and getting up really early, preparing meals...) and I just want to thank you Mr. & Mrs. Bullard, for your hospitality and kindness to us... you were such a blessing! :)

Then we went to a sunday morning service at a United Methodist Church in Montpelier where we enjoyed meeting new, sweet people and playing music and sharing. It was really a nice time. Thank You Lord! :)

Then, I'm pretty excited to share this next one because it was pretty cool and brought about lot's of blessing. We went to this little tiny town called Worcestor, VT. about a half-hour from Montpelier... the church was very small and the population looked smaller, but when we went in, the pastor was opening up the back and setting up more chairs! (he had faith, that's what he had :) But when the night came, God did indeed fill up all of the extra chairs he had set out and poured out His Spirit on that place! And do you know, that though this place hardly registers on the map of the rest of the world, it registers on God's map? And He wanted to visit it and send revival upon that place and bring new life to it! Isn't that exciting?? I just love God's ways!

Then, *and here's when I ran out of camera space* the next morning some friends that we had met the night before [the Beltramis] called us up. They are professional photographers and offered to take pictures for us... [which was a blessing because we needed some new shots!][I mean can you imagine getting by on my pictures this whole time?]. But we had an awesome time with them and I was so wishing I had my camera! Taking behind-the- scenes-shots of the whole picture-taking shebang would have been really fun. :) But that's okay, I've posted at least one shot of the experience below for you. =) So then while they were working on the pictures, we went to play at a seniors' residence at about 12:30, I think, and had a wonderful time there. It was neat meeting sweet people and making new friends. :)

Afterwards, when we reconnected with the Beltramis, they found out our van wasn't working (indeed, we didn't know how we'd get back) and took it into their brother's repair shop and got it fixed for us! We went to lunch with them, had a splendid time and by the time we were done, the van was done and we said our goodbyes and headed off! So cool! Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Beltrami for everything, you've been so sweet and kind! We so enjoyed spending time with you and getting to know you both... God bless you!

So that was the end of our whirlwind week (total count being 8 concerts in 7 days and 11 total in 2 weeks)... there was so much more that happened and many, many more blessings but I'm just trying to sum up a few things and trying not to write down the world's longest blog posts! It's rather difficult you know, because in person the story takes over an hour to explain... and an hour really looks like a whole lot more on, er, a screen. Especially since in that hour of conversing you have several other family members putting in more comments.. well anyway, I hope you enjoyed it :) and I hope you all have a wonderful night and God bless you!

Praise God!!

In Christ, Miriam

It was so good to see you guys the other night. Sorry we had to rush out right after and I didn’t get to talk to you again.
Hopefully next time you guys are around we can see you again.

Have a good day,

Hi Lydia!
I know, we felt really bad that we didn't get to chat with you at the end but it was great to see you all and at least get to talk at intermission. :) Hope to see you soon!
In Christ, Miriam
