Things we do on the road

We have stopped and taken our picture with the Big Boy at two different stores. The kids thought it was so neat.

Being in a lot of public bathrooms we were very impressed with this hand dryer. It had so much pressure it would move your skin around. Oh well, you have do to some thing to make things fun. I think we need to put more thought into this. LOL

Victory in Jesus

This last week I have been doing a study on how to have victory in Jesus. God wants us to have victory in Jesus. But the fact of the matter is we already have victory if we are saved, it is just a matter of if we claim that victory on a daily basis. It is not something you obtain and then sit back. You must daily seek God, through Bible reading and prayer to maintain the victory God has given you. I am not talking about Salvation. Once you have Jesus in your heart, no one can take that away from you including yourself. But your enemy (the devil, flesh, and the world) are continually attacking you to beat you down and have a defeated life.
Psalms 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
Psalms 119:11
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

First Baptist Church of Goshen, Goshen, Ohio

Sunday night August 17, we were at First Baptist Church of Goshen in Goshen, Ohio. The pastor is Bro. Junior Pittman. Our son John really enjoyed being here because the Pastors grandson plays the guitar very well and he showed John several things for him to work on. It is like guitar players have a special bond and enjoy playing together even when they first met. Services were good and fellowship sweet. We sure have enjoyed this time spent with these Southern Ohio churches.

Woodville Baptist Church Blanchester, Ohio

Sunday morning August 17th we were at Woodville Baptist Church in Branchester, Ohio. The pastor is Bro. Bill Webb. It was nice to be around people with a heart for missions. We enjoyed being in their services. Chad taught on Faith Promise Missions giving in the Sunday School hour. We showed our presentation and Chad preached in the regular worship services. They also baptized three that Sunday. What a joy to see people baptized even when you don't know them. Praise the Lord for this obedience on their part and for being a blessing to me.

Faith Baptist Church Goshen, Ohio

Wednesday night August 13th we were at Faith Baptist Church in Goshen, Ohio. The pastor, Bro. Tom Queen, and Church have been putting us up for these last 2 1/2 weeks in their prophets room.

The Tackett family had come through and it was nice to see them again.

Sunday night August 10, we were at Fellowship Baptist Church in Cincinnatti. Ohio. The pastor is Bro. Deane Gooch. We had first met Bro.

They are a very sweet couple and we also enjoyed their family. Services were encouraging and fellowship sweet.

We first came to this church a few months ago at their Run for the Rose Camp meeting. Our children were so looking forward to coming back, especially John, because they have a lot of musicians in their church. We had a wonderful time in service and visiting with the people there.

Midway Baptist Church Athens, Alabama

Sunday night, August 3 we at Midway Baptist Church in Athens, Alabama. Chad's cousin Tim Williams is a member at Midway so we were able to visit with him a little and caught up. The church has a welcoming courtyard between the building. We showed our dvd presentation and then were asked to sing and then Chad preached. We were moved by the interest in our task ahead of us and humbled by the generous love offering. What a blessing to see a young girl walk the isle a give her heart to Jesus during the invitation.

Victory Baptist Church Alexander City, Alabama

July 30 - August 3, we were at a missions conference in Alexander City, Alabama. The pastor is Bro. John Wakins. There were missionaries going the country of Nigraraga, Ivory Coast, Good Shepherd Baptist Missions. You could tell a lot of prayer and thought and preparation went into the week. We were challenged each night for the cause of World Wide missions. The first night the young people of the church carried flags in to place in stand for the week. Caleb and Anna were asked to participate. Caleb brought in the Nepal flag. Bro. Dee H. and Meige Easter and Mrs. Meige Aunt Ruth opened their home to us to stay with them for the week. It was such a joy to get to spend time with this wonderful family.

Emmanuel Baptist Church Pounding Mills, Virginia

We were at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Pounding Mills, Virginia, on Sunday, July 27 . When you drive into the town you see the church sitting on the hill overlooking the city. It is a very impressive view that this picture does not do it justice. Something very neat about this church. As soon as we walked in the door I looked at their missions board. Guess whose name was there. THE SELLERS FAMILY MISSIONARIES TO NEPAL. That was the first time we have seen our name on a missions board. It was so awesome. The pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church is Bro. Chris Huff. We have known Bro. Chris and his wife Terri for several years, but just met the dear folks at Emmanuel this month. We sure had a wonderful time. We were so well taken care of.

Finally Back.

We have been very busy lately. It has been hard to get a internet connection and then when we do it is very slow or someone else is checking their email. We also have started school this last week. It has gone very well, just hard to get back in the routine especially on the road. Prayerfully I will get back to blogging on a regular basic. I have lots to catch up on.
