Worthington, MN

Last week, Carey and the guys were in Worthington, MN. They had an awesome week and saw over 600 salvations! Can you imagine how much the Holy Spirit was moving in that town? The devil was sooo not happy last week! WHOO HOO!!!!!

Check out the website below to see the article of Carey and The Power Team. He was on the front page of the Worthington Paper!!! There were three great pics in the paper (which he brought home!) but only one on the internet.

Sermon

When Carey was in Jasper, TX, he preached at an awesome church called Harvest Church. They actually taped his first service sermon and put it on their website. If you would like to hear it, click on the link below

and then click on Resources, Media and Message Archive.

You will see August 9th, The Power Team, Carey Leighow.

Click on it and it takes quite a few minutes to download. If you have the time, sit back, relax and let the Holy Spirit fill your heart and home with His words!!!

God Bless You!

Football

Boomer Sooner!!! We had a nice win today! Granted it was against a not so good team but it was still a W!!!! I sure do hope they get these silly penalties over and done with before we play with the big dawgs or that will surely end up biting us in the rear!!!! Keep it us Sooners!!!!

God Bless You!

North Pointe, FL

Carey has been in North Pointe, FL all week doing a huge crusade. They have had an awesome week with over 300 salvations so far! Please continue to keep him and the rest of the guys in your prayers as they finish the crusade tomorrow. Hopefully, tomorrow night will be standing room only in the sanctuary!!! Our Father can sure do some awesome things!

God Bless You!

Volleyball

Well, I have been doing lots of coaching volleyball lately. We have had games around 4 - 5 times a week. Carey has been the biggest fan we have by traveling around to all the games and tournaments and sticking it out whether it is a a three game day or an all day tourney. He does so much by getting out on the floor during warm ups, helps by shagging balls, is the biggest and loudest cheerleader in the stands and even kept clock for us last night!

Our volleyball girls have improved so much with not only their volleyball skills but their internal strength and faith as well. Coach Kemp and I are trying to instill good values and also faith in our Father within each girl. We pray with the girls before and after the games, we teach them to be humble with their wins and to praise God when we win and when we lose. When we first started out, the only ones praying were Coach and I and now we ask the girls who wants to pray, we have several that will pray one after another. The other night on the way to a game, the girls were singing worship songs in the bus!!!!

My heart was filled with so much emotion during that bus ride! I am so proud to have been a part of each and every one of their lives.

We are going to have a party at our house for the 15 Varsity girls before regionals and watch Facing the Giants. (If you have not seen the movie, it is a MUST!) It's a great inspirational movie that a church made with the actors being people in the church, for example, the leading lady is the secretary!!!! Please pray for these girls before then and pray for us to have the right words to share with them. Carey and I have been praying for an awakening in Lawton for the youth and I am hoping that this is the start. We are praying that God will use us and this house for Him and His desires.

God Bless You!

Imagine...


Do you ever have those days when you feel like you have been treading water for so long and you just get more and more tired? Well those have been the last few weeks for me. When I am overworked, exhausted and sick, I like to imagine myself crawling in my Savior's lap and Him just caressing me and telling me to relax and that everything is going to be okay. Can you imagine that day? Can you even fathom the thought of going to Him and just being in His arms? The thought is so overwhelming to me. The song by Mercy Me "I Can Only Imagine" is my all time favorite song and literally brings tears to my eyes and gives me huge goosebumps when I let myself get lost in the moment imagining. The words are just so powerful...

"I can only imagine what it will be like, when I walk by Your side...
I can only imagine, what my eyes will see, when Your Face is before me!
I can only imagine. I can only imagine.
Surrounded by Your Glory, what will my heart feel?
Will I dance for you, Jesus? Or in awe of You, be still?
Will I stand in Your presence, or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing 'Hallelujah!'? Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine! I can only imagine!

I can only imagine, when that day comes, when I find myself standing in the Son!
I can only imagine, when all I will do, is forever, forever worship You!
I can only imagine! I can only imagine!

Surrounded by Your Glory, what will my heart feel?

Will I dance for you, Jesus? Or in awe of You, be still?
Will I stand in Your presence, or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing 'Hallelujah!'? Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine! Yeah! I can only imagine!

Surrounded by Your Glory, what will my heart feel?

Will I dance for you, Jesus? Or in awe of You, be still?
Will I stand in Your presence, or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing 'Hallelujah!'? Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine! Yeah! I can only imagine!

I can only imagine! Yeah! I can only imagine!! Only imagine!!!
I can only imagine.

I can only imagine, when all I do is forever, forever worship You!
I can only imagine."

If I didn't have one of the most thoughtful and supportive husbands in the entire world, I don't know how I would have made it through the last few weeks either. Carey is truly a gift that God gave me that I cherish more and more. I would come home tired from a long day at work and then three volleyball games after and think of all the things I needed to do when I got home but no! Even though he has been sick, I get home and the laundry is done, the yard is watered, the flowers are watered, dinner is ready, the house is cleaned, etc. I thank God for my husband so many times a day. I have been blessed above and beyond my means! Thank you for all that you do sugar! I love you!

God Bless You!!!

Update

First of all...

BOOMER SOONER!!!!! Nice game on Saturday. I just got to see the beginning and end of it but what I saw seemed pretty promising. I know it was only North Texas but still...GO SOONERS!!!

We got back from Jasper Monday night and had an incredibile time. There were over 300 salvations for the week! Praise God! Carey preached two services Sunday morning and the Holy Spirit was sure moving in that church! One guy who gave his heart to the Lord in the first service got baptised in the second service! How awesome is that! Not being able to see all the amazing things the Lord does through the Power Team each week and then going for a week with Carey helps me to realize how powerful He is! Here are a few pics from Sunday morning...


Yesterday, we saw the most beautiful rainbow!!! Just an example of God's beauty and a gentle reminder of the many blessing He has given us...




We also got a new grill today and had our first cookout. We invited mom over for dinner. Carey cooked chicken and steak on it and it was yum yum good!!!!! Here is Chef Leighow at his best...



God Bless You!

I know, I know...

I know it has been awhile since my last post. I am now officially blogging so all the nasty emails and comments and death threats can stop!!!!!

Here is what has been going on in our lives....school started for me along with volleyball games 4-5 times a week so I have been crazy busy! Carey has been the best supporter ever by going to ALL of my games and sitting at the tournaments all day long!!!! Thanks baby! I love you!

We also had a fun pool party last Sunday with Shane, the kids, Alisha and her kids. I took some fun pics and will try to post them later.

Right now, we are in Jasper, TX. Carey came down Wednesday for a crusade and mom, dad and I droved down Thursday and got here around midnight. Friday, the guys had 6 schools so we traveled around with them. Carey did a fabulous job talking to the students and really getting on their level! Here is a slide show of the schools....


I will update with night time program pics later! Please pray for the Power Team and all the salvations!

God Bless You!
