The Beginning of the End

This past weekend has been a flurry of activities with no sign of slowing and we couldn’t be more excited!

We have officially begun to say our good byes starting with our church family in the OC.
Friday night was our last College/Young Adult service we worshiped, studied that word and we were prayed over by our group. It was nice sharing our last Friday night with people who have become like family.

Saturday we held our garage sale and we were able to sell almost all our stuff! The last remaining items will be donated to the Salvation Army where hopefully, others can be blessed through their sale. It was a crazy but fun morning! We were able to talk to some of the folks who came to check out what we had about why we were selling everything and what God is doing in our lives. We met some lovely people who dropped by and we spent time with our friends who came to help us with the sale. All in all a great morning!

Later Chris and Sara came by with their darling Abigail Raja and we got to catch up and talk ministry and life in the Lord. That night we had our “Last Hang Out” and we had so much fun! Most of our friends were able to make it and there was food, dancing, laughter sharing, more dancing, more laughter, and best of all prayer. We were truly touched by the prayers of our friends and their words of kindness and encouragement.

Sunday we went to church, heard a wonderful message on Matthew 6:19-24, and went our to lunch with my parents as a mini birthday celebration. 

That night we came back and continued in the 1st Corinthians study with chapter 6:1-11 and Jack gave us an opportunity to tell the Morningstar family what we will be doing and then prayed for us. It was really awesome, a few people came over and talked with us about Germany and were excited to see what God will be doing there at CCK-Town.

Tonight is Alternative night where we will be helping in whatever way is needed and we will be saying our final good byes. We are very excited about this event and the opportunity to reach out to the community to provide a safe place for Kids to have fun on a night that often is not glorifying to the Lord.

God truly is Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our Provider) even in bringing along other saints to encourage and bless us. We have been soaking it all up knowing that what we are about to embark on will be difficult. It will require much prayer and diligence and we are grateful for the outpouring of love from our family here in the OC. We hope to be able to host missions teams very soon and we know that even if we never see each other face to face here on earth we will most definitely be with one another when we meet Jesus face to face.

We love you all and God Bless the work that He is doing through the faithful few here in Whittier.

In His Love,
Aaron and Donna Glaize
