Off and Running!

Pastors Nelson & Vicky Hopkins

“And they’re off and running!” Well, “they” means us and by this we’re referring to the first church on our summer schedule. On Sunday morning, we ministered at Impact Church in Morehead City. We had a great time sharing about the crisis that we underwent in 2010 with Prit’s brain aneurysms and God’s faithfulness towards us during that fiery trial. Many people responded to the message and came forward for prayer for healing. What a privilege it is to pray for God’s people!

Right before the service closed, one of those that came forward for prayer raised his hand and exclaimed, “I just want to tell you all that I feel the power of God all over my body! It’s like a hand is resting on my back!” This particular brother in the Lord had had chronic pain all through his body as well as a disc in his back that had totally deteriorated. We are looking forward to more wonderful reports of healing.

Pastor Nelson and Vicky Hopkins have a great church and it’s apparent that this fellowship has a genuine love for each other. They are just wrapping up a 40-day fast. Incidentally, we were scheduled to visit their old church in Beaufort (Faith and Victory) in 2010, but due to unforeseen circumstances, that didn’t work out. It was a joyous reunion after not being able to get together for many years. What a blessing it is to have Impact Church partnering with Rehoboth Ministries to make an impact in Haiti!

Yesterday, we visited with friends in Sneads Ferry and had a time of wonderful fellowship. We’ve been spending the weekend with my (Dana’s) sister, Mary Ann, and are getting ready to head back to Fayetteville today. It’s always a special time for us, who have been on the mission field, to get to spend time with our loved ones!

Our oldest son, John, was told he has Thursday off, so he’s coming in from Asheville to join us for a long weekend. We are so excited and looking forward to seeing Gabe and Deb later in the summer.
