Brief Encounter Update (with photos and videos!)

Our church hosted the Spring Encounter this past weekend. I have mentioned the Encounters before. They are two day retreats that are an opportunity to encounter God and deepen your relationship with him.

Last fall, Christy Jones was able to come and lead worship for us and she did a phenomenal job, as always! Her only desired upgrade was to have a live band (its coming Christy!) Christy is a very talented singer and led worship at our church In Alabama. She reminds me a lot of Kari Jobe!

This time my brother Johnnie Denson, his wife Debbie, Harry and Candace Sanchez, Mike Johnson and Michael Grant from New Harvest Church in Clewiston, FL, and Ryan (I forgot his last name - I'm so sorry!) from Crossroads Chapel in Palm Harbor came and led worship. They were tremendous! I was so proud of them all! Although Johnnie (Uncle Bubbo to my girls) and Debbie have been on the worship team at New Harvest for gosh, over ten years I think, they have never led. You would have NEVER known it!

They were so humble, all of them and they flowed prophetically. Just broken vessels allowing God to minister through them! I could say so much.... but I'll share some video and pictures instead! (the footage is rough.. I was using my digital camera... not really for videoing but it will give you an idea...)



We also had some great teachers... below you'll see Virginia Sonneschein, Emilio Quezada and my hubby, Craig. I spoke too but I was behind the camera so no photo...
We were also blessed to have the Ignited Dance Team (UIC Student Ministries) dance...





I am making a post with photos only to follow this one...

To wrap it all up, I am so thrilled with what God did this weekend. Right now I am still lacking words to really recap the weekend... until then, enjoy the photos and videos...

Join the Journey,
