The men gather around Travis Snode to pray for him and his ministry. The ladies also gather around Teri and pray for her. It is a beautiful evening of their home church just telling them how much we love them and how much we thank God for their surrender and service to Him.
The church presented Teri with a box of letters for their family. We hope it will be a box of memories to remember how much we love them and how much we care about them. The people are asked to write a letter to each of them. They are placed in the box then on a down day they can pull a letter and remember that someone loves them.
In this picture the men and women that will share a word of blessing with each of them are lining up. We then share kind words with Travis and Teri publicly. It is a wonderfully sweet time.
My beautiful wife, Betty, here shares some kind words with the couple.
The church presents Travis with a sword that is engraved with the words, “Has your sword tasted blood?” Those words come from a message I used to preach on the road in mission’s conferences. The sword is a symbol of the Word of God which is sharper than any two edged sword and should be used to draw spiritual blood, get souls saved, lives changed, people maturing in the faith.
God gave us 128 people in attendance for this great service!
