Please note that we will be closing our website – mikeandholli.net – effective Nov. 24th. We pray you’ve been blessed & encouraged by the content of the website over the years. We’ve enjoyed having it and appreciate so much everyone stopping by to visit, listen to music and/or sermons, browse around, etc. Life & ministry are keeping us very busy, and we just cannot find time to keep up with our own website! We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding!
We closed on our new house on August 31st! We praise the Lord for allowing us to build & buy a beautiful new home! We are enjoying getting settled in, though it is (and will continue to be) a long process!
We apologize for the lack of posts! It would take way to much room to try to update everything here, but needless to say, things have been crazy busy! We’re having a great time!
We anticipate our new house to be complete in early August. We can’t wait!
15 years ago tomorrow the people of the United States turned to God in unprecedented fashion as our nation came under brutal surprise attack from foreign terrorists. God, in His mercy, held our hands as we worked to put our lives and our country back together.
Most nations don’t survive attacks like Americans did on September 11th, 2001! The impact of terror on our national infrastructure, our security, our defense, our economy, and our basic way of living should have spelled the end of the United States of America. Historically and statistically, we shouldn’t even be here! But on Sunday, September 16th, 2001, Americans filled up the churches and God was moved. As He had done so many times throughout American history – GOD RESCUED US – – when He owed us nothing!! Today, we are not broken and impoverished slaves but instead you and I enjoy vacations, televisions, high-tech cars, iphones and androids, great restaurants, sports, and countless other joys! Today, your kids are free! Looks to me like we owe God some thanks.
It’s summertime in Arkansas and that means HEAT & HUMIDITY!!! You may think we melted away since it’s been so long since we’ve posted anything! We’re fine…just busy with life & ministry!
Back in June, we enjoyed some time in Colorado Springs with Holli’s parents. We also took an excursion to Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota! What an incredible sight! We even camped out in Rapid City overnight. Granted, we had electricity and WiFi, but it was still camping…we did sleep in a tent (ok, on an air mattress!)! Here are a few pics from the trip.
We also spent a day driving to and from Durango, CO, where we had lunch with some of Mike’s family. The drive was incredibly scenic! We drove over Wolf Creek Pass (10,856 ft.) which was scary but beautiful!!
Sierra even found a new friend, Tasha. Okay, so they didn’t really get along. This is as close as they ever got to each other…at least without hissing and chasing each other away!
Thanks for stopping by to check on us!! :)
