Friday’s Fave Five

Welcome to Friday’s Fave Five, hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story, in which we can share five of our favorite things from the last week. This has been a wonderful exercise in looking for and appreciating the good things God blesses us with.

It’s been a busy week! Here are a few highlights:

1. Special meetings at church with the Frazor Evangelistic Team. I had never been in a church where they held meetings before, but the leader, Jeremy Frazor, used work with the youth at the church here and used to travel with the Steve Pettit Evangelistic Team. And….

2. Seeing old friends. Two of the young adults of the church we just came from in SC are traveling with the team. It was so good to see them! One in particular, Aaron, was in school with Jason, and, if there is any one person I could choose from any church we have been in to sing, it would be Aaron. And therefore…

3. A new CD. The Frazor team just recorded their first ever CD, Calvary’s Mountain, and it’s been a special blessing to have the two we mentioned on it! I’m telling myself I need to stop thinking of the CD as “Aaron in a box,” but it is nice now to be able to listen to him any time. He sings “Beneath the Cross,” and he and the other young lady we knew, Jennifer, sing “Sweet Rivers of Mercy,” as well as singing with the rest of the team on other numbers. I’m enjoying both familiar and new songs on the CD.

4. Fellowship. Jason and Mittu wanted to get together with Aaron some time this week and were talking about going for coffee one night, but they ended up coming here and asking Jennifer as well, so we enjoyed having a bit more fellowship than just chatting at church. I hadn’t been sure if they’d be able to get away since they have other responsibilities with the team, so I am glad they could. Mittu made snacks and I just enjoyed it all.

5. Good preaching. We enjoy that weekly, but we’ve been in special meetings in other churches with evangelists whom we felt were maybe a little pushy or manipulative, and it’s been wonderful to hear the Gospel preached well and clearly and strongly but also with a kind and welcoming tone.

Bonuses: The church had a Ladies’ Steak-Out Monday night and a Men’s Steak-Out Tuesday night — steak dinners and special meetings with the team especially designed to bring non-Christian friends to.. My only regret is that I didn’t know anyone to invite. It’s been nice that there have not been any other obligations this week besides the usual laundry, etc, so I’ve been able to take it a little easier in the day time. Being out nearly every night takes more out of me than it used to! Yet I am surprised the week is nearly over already. And I am looking forward to a visit this weekend from my good friend from SC, Carol!

Have a great weekend!

  1. I’m going to have to go listen to this new team! I know how you feel about your friend being on the CD and getting to listen to him anytime. Sam has sung in a couple of college tour groups that made CDs, and he sang solo parts on several songs. It’s so nice to hear my son’s voice whenever I listen to those CDs! I’ve also heard him on the radio – The Lighthouse internet radio station from a church in Wisconsin. It was a nice surprise one morning to hear Sam’s voice come across my iPod!

  2. The Frazor Evangelistic Team were at our church last fall. They were also here 2 years ago. I enjoyed them and am enjoying their CD!

  3. I know what you mean. My son is on a CD now, and I LOVE to listen to him. (Maybe a little bit of prejudice there. . .)

    I taught Jeremy Frazor in the 7th grade!

  4. That sounds like so much fun fellowshipping with church friends. I can probably relate with CD thing. When you (personally) know the artist, listening is double the fun.

  5. WOW! You had a wonderfully “churchy” week! I LOVE that! And how cool about Aaron… that is sO neat! Glad you guys got some good visit time with him! 🙂

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
