This past weekend hubby and I were able to getaway for a few days to a pastor's conference. This was not your typical minister's conference to learn more about how to do church, but a time for a pastors and their wives to come and recharge and gain encouragement. It is called the Timothy/Barnabas Conference which is done by Johnny and Janet Hunt from FBC Woodstock. He is the senior pastor there as well as the current SBC President. He has a heart for ministers and wanting them to be the best they can be and to help them not to burn out.
Many pastor's today are under alot of pressure and are subject to the same moral failures as everyone in the world. Satan is working overtime to attack pastors and their families. He is wanting to attack the integrity of minister's and discredit everything minister's say and do. I amazed to learn about the amount of minister's who have a moral failures. It just shows that we are not immune to this, and how much you should pray for ministers everywhere.
Noel and I are praying and trying to everything we can do with God's help to protect his ministry, our marriage, and our girls. So if it may seem like an inconvenience to some - we are protecting our family.
Thank you church for letting us be gone for a few days, and thanks Beth for watching our girls! Also another bonus was getting to each lunch with some of our friends in AL and eating Mata's pizza.
