Lessons & Faithfulness in 2014

Wow its been a long time since we updated here! But the blog is making a come back in 2015! I want to start it off with a little recap of 2014 and share our hearts for whats ahead.
We are full of thankfulness for the past year in Mt. Pleasant. God blessed us with wonderful housing where we have been for over a year now! This is the longest we have been settled in our marriage, and the longest I've gone without moving in 10 years! We are so grateful for Tim & Jennifer and their family in opening their home to us. It has been a bigger blessing than we could have imagined! Its a beautiful, quiet neighborhood where we welcomed our sweet Judah at the end of April. He was a gift to us as we returned from Israel. And by God's grace my desire was fulfilled to birth him all naturally in the water. Judah is so cute and sweet; always smiling, laughing, and on the move! He has a strong personality and carries the joy of the Lord! We are so thankful for his life. Evan and I are so thankful for the Lord's faithfulness and continued provision.
The beginning of 2014 we were motivated to step forward and dream with God again. We pursued several ideas in prayer, but Tbilisi, Georgia is the one that continued coming up since before Judah was born. Evan has enjoyed his work in a wood shop and lots of time leading worship and growing in that gift. 2014 was a year of seeing an increase in God bringing physical healing to MANY people through Evan's ministry. It has been such a delight to see God grow that area of faith and reveal His kindness and love through healing. He is just really good and really loves people and that is why He desires wholeness and life. Its why Jesus came! Wow its good and so exciting!
In December Evan and three other guys went on a faith journey for 7 days. They walked by faith, meaning they had no plans, not even knowing where they were going or where they would stay at times. Just listening to God lead them and showing God's love to as many as they could. There are countless incredible testimonies from that week of salvation, healing, and God encountering people with His perfect love! They came back fired up and continue to walk out God's command to shine His love and to bring healing to the sick. God is on the move! The stories kept me encouraged as Judah and I spent that week in Indiana with my mom as she recovered from surgery. It was a great time with family! I also started a business from home that can continue wherever we go! Its all about inspiring healthy living and I would love to share more with you!
We spent Christmas with Evan's parents and rushed back to Charleston the next day so I could stand with our dear friends Chris & Jordan Tate as she labored with their daughter Elsie. Elsie had been given a fatal diagnosis as her sister Ellie had last year, but we had stood in faith asking for life and healing. It was such a blessing and honor to be a part of their special day as we witnessed sweet Elsie's moments of life before going to live with Jesus in eternity. There are no words to express the grief and sorrow of the situation, but we are thankful for the hope and comfort we have in Jesus. You can read more about their story here. Jordan is full of wisdom and their faith is sure to be a blessing and inspiration. You can even be a part of their story by contributing to their adoption fund linked on their blog!
Now we look forward to this new year of TRUST. The doors seem to be wide open for ministry in the Republic of Georgia. Our hearts are really to encourage and equip believers around the world, and start fires wherever we go. Evan's annointed worship carries healing for the nations. We hope to impart what we have been given with believers locally and around the region through teachings, seminars, discipleship, etc. We are preparing to go in April and are in the process of planning and raising support. You may think we are crazy again and wonder why we are going back to Georgia. Well, God began putting it on our hearts clearly last April. It is not just our wild idea, but a vision and desire He placed in us. We tried to pursue several other directions/ministry areas in the States but never getting far or having much peace. As we finally decided to obey and take a step toward Georgia we were full of peace and believe God said April 2015. Now that time is quickly approaching and we walk by faith trusting in the one who has called us to fulfill it.
We invite you to join us in the vision God has given us for His kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven! You, me, us, we are the body of Christ. Will you consider joining us in taking His love, salvation, freedom, and healing to every nation? Please let us know if you would like to be a part of our prayer team, or if you would like to partner financially, or if you want to visit us there we would really love that too! We need the Body. We need your prayers, encouragement, and relationship. We are ever grateful and value you highly in our lives.

We hope to see each of you soon and we wish you and your family a very blessed and exciting 2015! Love, The Adams Family
