Some of the signs we look for to know Spring has sprung are the dafodills blooming, colorful birds throughout the sky, the grass greening from it's winter brown and the days warming up. But for me, I knew it was here because the phones calls for help increased. You see, this is the time that the weekly motels, the few that are left, start to increase their rates due to tourism in Williamsburg. (Although tourism has been down over the past couple of years, they figure if they raise the cost of a motel room, people will want to visit here!) This past Friday there was a total of 78 calls (some from the same person.) So now you may understand why I haven't blogged in awhile!

But, even through the chaos of phone calls, the Lord has been doing AWESOME things in the lives of those who are participating in the '40 Days of a purpose driven life.' Last Friday we had 2 people pray the Sinner's Prayer and reconfirmed their faith in God! Now Herbert asks us each morning about going to church. He has been so excited about getting back on his feet and his walk with God.

God has also been making great contacts for us. The other day I had a nice 2 hour talk with Jay Harrison, who is one of Williamsburg's Supervisors. Also, 2 other churches have offered to help support our effort with the homeless. Slowly, I have been spreading the news about our Homeless Awareness Day that is scheduled for June 5th. But for now I have to focus on the Mission Fair at our church on Sunday. Until I can get everything printed, I need to keep focused on this project. I will blog more on Sunday about the different ways God has been moving in our lives.
