Drum Roll Please.....I am Moving too..........

Verden, Oklahoma!!

Yep..its true..that were im moving too! Below is the email we sent out to all the people that follow are ministry!

We're Moving!

It's official - the packing has begun! Sermon on the Mount will be moving to Verden, Oklahoma!! After months of diligent search and prayerfully considering requests and options from 20 states, we are confident of the Lord's leading New Arena -  Exteriorto this somewhat remote, but very accessible location in central USA. The Sterretts (Lew & Melodie, David & Rhonda and family( Thats me!), Sandie & family, along with Darci Ellis) will initiate their move immediately. It is hoped that all moving from MS & PA will be complete before Lew's ten-day campaign at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games beginning on September 23, 2010.

New arena - interiorYes, it is a challenging, but timely work of the Lord as we conclude our work here at French Camp, MS with the Ministry Apprentice Program graduation on July 31, and seek to not only move, but also acquire and setup two additional homes, and renovate a building for an office. Family needs and school schedules, along with existing speaking and presentation dates establish some very timely and unique David & Rhonda's new homeboundaries. We are trusting the Lord for help in moving and setup. Many of SOTM's friends in Oklahoma and Texas have already offered their help.

What to Expect You can no doubt expect some delays in purchase orders and phone or email response while we transition, but we are attempting to stay plugged in at French Camp until we are up and running in our new facility. We will be initiating a regular E-newsletter to keep everyone informed of the great work God is doing. The newsletter will feature pictures and testimonies of this new adventure. You can no doubt appreciate that we will face many needs and trials along the way and your prayers are requested and appreciated!!

A Tooth Soap® Goodie Pack which includes a bottle of Tooth Soap, Tooth Swish and Tooth Brightener!

How can I win?

To play - Choose a song that represents your life and tell us why you chose that song. Please include a Blog Bash badge on your post! (:

The song below is my life song!
I choose this song because it has helped me through some very hard times in my life! I have been going through allot and I have found that this song has summed it all up!
I must praise Him in this storm!

"Praise You In This Storm"

I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

And I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to you
And you raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find You

But as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away


I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth
