The Kurtz - First Trimester 2020

Hello Friends,

With what is going around the world, I (Marielos) thought I shouldn't update our travels, but since several people have been asking about them, I decided to do it. Right now, we are in Adrian, Georgia serving in a Christian camp and conference center. We will be telling you more about it in a future post.

As most of you know, we spent the first two months of the year at The Cove/Billy Graham Training Center in Asheville, NC.

At the beginning, I (Marielos) had my reservations because it was winter, but the Lord knew we needed to be there during this time when help was needed the most. On December 23rd the Cove had a fire that forced them to close the place and consequently cancelled all their events. However, what the devil meant for for evil, The Lord used it for good.

During this time, only employees and volunteers were allowed around. Work that had been put on hold for lots of years was taken care: structural upgrades, update equipment, etc. 
We also loved that we were able to get to know much closer most of the Cove staff and employees. 

Though it was winter, the weather was great. Cold, rainy and practically no snow.  Actually the day we got snow, I loved it.

By mid February, The Cove was reopened and as volunteers, we were blessed with a great dinner, enjoy a concert with Brandon Health and watch the I Can Believe movie. We had a tremendous experience in this godly & peaceful place! We can't wait to go back next year.

One of our brothers in Christ who works at The Cove blessed  us with tickets for a tour in the Biltmore House. We got to enjoy it with our beloved friends Gary & Sandy.
Wow! That place is impressive! 

We were also blessed to help one of our brother's in Christ & ministry supporters with the painting of his new house interior.

Our prayer in this unique time of all our lives is first, for each and every one of us to draw nearer to God, for all our Lord Jesus wants is a relationship with us. And second, to make time to enjoy with friends and family. Please do not let satan steal these precious moments.

God bless y'all!  
Romans 8: 38-39
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from  God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
