Luettich Lodge

Luettich-lodge
Our little family had the fun priviledge of staying with the Luettich Family while in Florida for the missions conference! Set back in the woods, near a quiet river, surrounded by Florida beauty, the Luettich Lodge was a perfect getaway for us! We had to undergo cabin checks daily! Cabin 2 (my and Shaun's room!) ROCKS! I must say we had a favorable judge (smiling up there in the yellow!). The laughter from the kiddos, the connecting with the adults, the times of prayer for each other…man, it felt like camp for the camp people!Luettich-home

Wayne and April are the humblest, most sincere and fun people to be around! And they are on an exciting journey with God right now. We are thrilled for them and blessed to have spent this week at their home!

Thank you Luettich family for loving us! We will be missing you!

{We enjoyed each of those we were able to spend any amount of time with. Our only regret is that we could not see everyone we care about down there!}

We return feeling refreshed and encouraged! More on that to come this week!

(p.s. in case you didn't realize…colored text above are links, some to the Florida Postcards I posted throughout the week!)

Happy Monday, friends!

hello to you,

Had a little stormy weather yesterday. Outwardly and inwardly. But alas, today is a new day! Last night as a staff, we enjoyed sharing about God's story as unfolded at, in and through Whisper Mountain! Praying His name was well represented!

In other news…the Key Lime Pie was amazing!

We ladies are looking forward to a day out with all the other lady missionaries (and our men likewise!)

As I was reminded yesterday, if you are in a storm…the wind will move it out. Stay the course!

happy day to you,

Cassi

Friends!

While Marty and Patti have been running to and fro, Ramsey has enjoyed catching up with a few of his favorite people, and my little crew has been catching up with each other, sleep, and having coffee with a friend. We've especially enjoyed the fellowship of some of our favorite people (follow that link…they are amazing people!). We are staying at the Luettich Lodge, as they have called it, for the week. And Shaun and I are staying in Cabin 2! How fun, don't you think?!

I took the above picture looking out into their backyard. Something in this forest calls to me. I'm not sure if it's the moss drooping from trees, or the green carpet at their feet. Maybe a mystery of what I would find should I venture out among them. Whatever it is, I'm captivated.

On the docket today…interviews with some interested GIT's for this upcoming summer and preparing for our evening presentation. We'd love prayer for all this!

Yes, there is lovely in these days. Hoping you're finding the same. If you aren't, hold on. The lovely is working its way to you!

Blessings,

Cassi (on behalf of the whole gang!)

P.S. Postcard deliveries continue through the weekend! Be looking for them!

Friends, 

Last night, each missionary at the conference was given a lively, lights flashing, name announcing, aisle walking introduction to the church family! Encouraging, this walk, as they were supported by the hearts of all those who gathered for worship last night. Yes, we walk carrying the jugs of water because we believe God turns the water to wine! May we get out of our safe harbors and risk it all for Jesus! His power moves when we surrender all!

Well, we are enjoying a little bit of a free day today! Resting and a little playing is on some of the agendas!

Soaking it in,

Dear Friends,

Happy February! Being welcomed at the end of a long day driving by the same loving friends as last year was such a delight! Hugs, food, laughter and a little *after dinner frozen delight* blessed us tremendously! When I say frozen delight, I'm speaking of the chilly swimming pool fun! Since when did cold water ever stop kids from swimming?!

Today we are busy with setting up the booth and beginning orientation for this week's events! Grateful to be here! We'll be in touch!

May you find delight in your day!

 

From the land of sunshine and palm trees,

The Whisper Mountain crew

Friends, 

As the sun sets on our time away, we return to camp ready to jump into the work at hand! New perspective and excitement ignites our hearts as we think of the coming seasons of camp ministry!

Looking forward to sharing with you regularly in this space again starting tomorrow!

Sunny day to you!

Dear friends,

Our family has enjoyed some time together on the beach this week! Having grown up in Florida where the beach was part of life, it now feels a little strange being the “tourist”!  We are eating up all the green and blue zones I’ve talked about! And it’s doing our hearts and bodies good!

If you are currently freezing where you are, know that I send my sympathies as I sit with the sand between my toes, the sun shining warmly on my face, the water rushing on shore ever so peacefully! (Wasn’t that mean?!!!) I’ll be freezing again with you soon enough!

WARMest 🙂 regards,

The Werners

Dear friends,

The conference for missionaries down here in Florida has been a blessing in many ways. I can’t wait to share some of what God has done with you soon! Bringing people together who share the passion of having the world know Jesus is a spirit-lifting event! Our God really is on the move all around the world! May we continue to Proclaim Him while time remains to do so!

Going to relax a little!
