Happy Thanksgiving from the Hills!

For all of you fellow Wheatland Mission folk and all of you who are friends and encouragers of our little community, I want to wish a heartfelt thank you for the prayers and support these last two years. It is not often enough that we thank one another, much less God, for the blessing of each other.

May your Thanksgiving Day be filled with deep and rich blessing from God. Here’s to the future and many more Thanksgivings with Wheatland.

God Bless You…

the Hills

A Story of Faith

Many of you have been praying for the Kirk Rogg family. Kirk, who is suffering with ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is at home with his family spending as much time as possible with those closest to him.

Two weeks ago Kirk spoke at Olathe Bible Church where he and his family attend. His words are an inspiring and heartbreaking reminder of how we must deal with life’s difficulties and tragedies this side of heaven. It is also a message of hope that reminds those of us not having to deal with such immediate and immense difficulty that God is at work in our lives in the difficulties as much as the triumphs.

Click here (the Kirk Rogg story) to read about Kirk and his family and view Kirk’s message. There is both a video from Kirk and and a video from John Ortberg, the author of It All Goes Back In The Box, a book that has been especially meaningful to Kirk at this time.

Of course, please pray for Kirk and Angie and their entire family. Also, pray for Kyle and Rachel along with their children during this difficult time.

To Those Who Serve…

Let it it not go without saying that the American serviceman or woman, displays a special quality that has to be described as Christlike. Let’s take time to say thanks to those who have given so much.

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. – John 5:13

No matter what branch, what war or what time we say thanks. I especially want to say thanks to those from our community who have given themselves to this important task. Thanks Ace, Brad, Drew, Robert and Rodger.

Happy Birthday…Ty!!!

He made it another year! Now we can call him an “old married man”.

Don’t forget to let Ty know how much you appreciate him on his special day. Thanks, Ty for all you do and all you are. God bless you!

“Father, bless the servant that I am and the servant that I will be.” AMEN.

A Fall Fest Success!

Thank you all for bringing food, helping with set-up and tear down, and contributing to the overall good time that we had during our Fall Fest last night. There are always too many people to thank but here it goes…

First of all, thank you Kris for the planning and prep for the night. It was another job well done. Thanks Kelly for all your work with the kids both before and during the Fall Fest. A big thank you to the chili cookers. Good work! it is nice having Skyline-esque chili this far away from Cincinnatti.

Finallly, thank you to little E for not breaking my nose during the pie throwing contest. You were well trained indeed!
