The Oasis is Open!!!!

I know, it has been almost 6 months since I last posted. A lot has been going on and I have posted some of it on Facebook. But today, I had to post these photos here. Today we got to spend some time enjoying The Oasis. This is a waterpark that Harvest Church has helped build in Billings. I told my mom that this was probably the 2nd coolest thing I have been involved in at Harvest. The 1st being my adoption of Kidist and Meskerem. One of the things that has been so cool for me to see is how God orchestrated it that I could help contribute to this project and still bring my girls home. I caught the vision for this waterpark when the first capital campaign was announced in about 2004. Now, 8 years later, my children are able to enjoy what God has done. So here are a few pictures of our time there today. I will have a couple more thoughts at the end; so please keep reading.

Sheer joy!

God gave us an absolutely perfect day in which to enjoy the Oasis. I pray that this place will show people that God loves us and wants the best for us. I promise following God is not all about the things you CAN'T do. Sometimes it is about what we CAN do through His power and strength. Jesus said, "I come that you might have life and have it abundantly." (John 10:10)  I honestly never thought my life could be this full, but by the Grace of God it is.
