Rachel Begnaud teaching new songs!
The team getting it down "tight"!
Jay Sterling had a basketball game tonight at the LCA Gym at 5:30PM. They played the only unbeaten team in the league tonight - afterwards, they are still the only unbeaten team in the league. Anyway, I walked over to the Main Auditorium after the game - I saw people, cars, lights - wanted to see what was going on. People all over doing different things - Rachel and the Music team were practicing for Sunday - Bruce, Jasin, and Andre' were installing some new lights and a new control board, others setting up the stage for the BIG event that begins this Sunday. The moment we have all been waiting for - Jan. 21st. I was overlooking the new UL Small Group Magazine that will be released this weekend.

Charles Lambert talking about the harvest!
Last night was fantastic! We concluded the weekend with Charles Lambert, a missionary to the world for over 25 years now. We had a great service on Sunday and we invited all those who felt God was calling them to Missions work, whether full time, part time, or just one week at a time to come back on monday night. We had over 100 (missionaries) show up. We spent some time around the alter, prayed, cried for the nations, - a real special moment with God. I pray that 2007 will be a year of "going out" to the world. We are currently organizing 4 missions trips for the families of TFC to participate in this year. I pray that all of TFC will be a part of World Missions this year like never before. I look forward to seeing what God will do. I don't know about you - but I am getting ready for Something BIG!!

Missionaries and Pastors having Lunch
On Wednesday of this week, I was part of a group of Pastors and Missionaries doing a little planning for the upcoming year. It was great to be a part of so many great men of God who have a heart to reach this world with the love of Jesus Christ. Missionaries from Brazil and various countries in Africa were present along with Pastors from Louisiana. I am so excited about what God is up to in 2007. TFC get ready for BIG things this year. All of you who have a heart to travel and see what God is doing in other parts of the world - GET READY!

Also, on Monday Night 7pm, a special one hour seminar on "Preparing for Missions" will be held in the Main Auditorium. See all of you Missionaries there.

I had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl. LSU vs. Notre Dame in the Superdome this week. I looked around at all the people, the fans, the food, the hype, the money spent, the crowds, the entertainment - It was BIG! I firmly believe it is small in comparison to what I believe that God wants to do in our lives this year and at TFC. I want you to dream BIG, Give BIG, have BIG Faith, and See the BIG Picture of 2007. Remember, Something Big is Coming - Jan. 21st at The Family Church. Don't Forget Small group leaders - this weekend is our Training Weekend. Hope to see all of you!

The Miller Boyz with friends!
Last night, new years day, we wanted to have a few people over for supper to play games and watch football, do some fireworks, and sit by the outside fire. What was gonna be just one other family turned into around 30 or 40 people. At one point, Tessy came out and asked me who all I invited (as more kept showing up). She wanted to make sure we had enough food! As I was watching kids pop fireworks outside, others sit by the fire, others playing games inside and watching football, the thought came to me, "What a great way to start a New Year!". Surrounded by family and friends - building relationships. That is what life is really about. That is why God has put is here on this earth - to build relationships and assist one another in life. Everything is the Garden of Eden was good - except - Adam being alone. I pray for many healthy relationships in this new year. Join a UL Small Group at TFC this coming Semester. May your 2007 be filled with building relationships and spending time with one another.
Micah Jay loving this firework stuff!
