That was what the lady said Sunday morning before service as she ran up to me at Changepoint Church in Poughkeepsie, New York where we had conducted a seminar.

She and her husband had attended our Marriage Toolbox Seminar Friday night and Saturday.  We had been teaching on Communication tools and ways to Resolve Conflict.  She shared that when they got home on Saturday they had a huge argument and were slinging the "well I can see you got a lot out of the seminar" statements when all of a sudden they stopped and thought we need to try the techniques and see if they work.  Surprise - it really worked. She said they were able to resolve an issue that they had not talked about for the past 25 years because it was such a sore spot.   Praise God is all we have to say. He is so faithful.

All in all the seminar was a huge success. The comments afterward were encouraging and we could tell that people had taken to heart the truths taught and that it was going to make a change for them.

Sadly we had to leave and rush home because Sherry's 91 yr old mothers youngest sister who lived in California, had died and poor mom was heartbroken and quite distraught as you can imagine. We were just thankful that we were so close to home and not in Europe.  Our daughter stayed with her until we arrived home around 11:30 p.m.  So please keep Sherry's mom, Dorothy,  in prayer as she grieves.

This is the kind of thing that everyone who travels for ministry dreads.  But isn't that like life?  We never know what a day will hold. In James  3:13-15  it says "Come now, you who say, Today or tomorrow, we shall go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit. Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, If the Lord wills, we shall live and also do this or that.

So dear brothers and sisters, live today like it is your last, make a difference by being faithful to God and preach the gospel to everyone who will listen.

Here are some pictures of our seminar.  Much love, PW and Sherry
