Whitworth Memorial Baptist Church. God has given Pastor Pete Darnell an infectious love for the Word and his people. He and his wife were so kind to spend time with our family over lunch. [JUNE 3] After performing a wedding for one of my former teens, we were able to be with Trinity Baptist Church in Franklin, TN. Pastor Dave Schindel was on a missions trip, so we got some great time with our new friends, the Ashmores. They were so hospitable and fun! Karis loved getting to know their four kids. [JUNE 7] Jon was able to share what God has been doing in our family with Pastor Dave Cross at Faith Baptist Church in Jefferson City, TN for prayer and fellowship. God is using a difficult health situation in Pastor Cross to produce an incredible love and passion for ministry and missions. [JUNE 10] Some of our adoption community friends invited us to their church plant in East Tennessee. The service, location, setup, teardown, and excitement made us antsy to be in SLC this August! [JUNE 17] This last weekend we were able to be with brother's wife's family. The Woods have been pastoring Grace Baptist Church in Dacula, GA for 6 years.They were so kind to host us in their home, and Karis particularly loved playing with their dolls and swimming in their pool. I so enjoyed hearing Pastor Wood's heart to disciple both his generation and the next. This weekend we head up to North Carolina to be at Catawba Springs Christian Church. Be sure to check our itinerary below.
Dessert and SLCMonday and Tuesday of this week, we hosted dessert receptionsat Jon's parent's house. Because Beth and I both grew up in the same town, we have several friends and families that are still in the area. We were not able to present God's call and ministry at all of their churches, but many had still expressed interest in hearing about it. So, we all packed into my parent's living room, grabbed some desserts, and talked Salt Lake City. We showed our DVD and presentation and prayed for God's help. It was so encouraging to see our friends support and excitement for what God is doing to send us to SLC to plant churches.
Our kind Father knows our needs
The Kopps Travelogue
We've also been posting a rather exciting, detail-packed travelogue. Be warned, this is a raw on the street look at the Kopps Journeys. You never know when a picture of one of us jumping on the beds at a hotel or a conked out passenger might pop up in the feed. Click here to follow along.
