Remembering Jacob Kosowsky

God recently reminded me that “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”  Deuteronomy 29:29

Friday morning, October 18 Shon received a phone call early in the morning from our dear friend Steve Kosowsky that would once again shake our family.  Steve and Sharilyn’s 21 year old son, Jacob, was tragically killed in a car accident during the night. As I sat on my couch trying to process the news, I felt God reminding me once again that He numbers our days and that His plans are definitely not mine. And yet, He is good even in suffering. God didn’t reveal to me why He decided it was time for Jacob’s life on earth to end but He has revealed to me the past two months what an impact this young man made not only on his own family, but also to our family, his friends, and even the world.

Jake was such a gift to all of us! His love and compassion for those around him made many think of him as their best friend. His hugs made everyone feel his love surrounding them. His smile warmed our hearts. His thoughtful words made us see the beauty of the world more clearly. His love for God’s creation inspired us to love and care for the world more. His wisdom made us think more deeply on important subjects of life. His kindness encouraged many hearts.  His love for adventure made memories that will never fade for his family and friends. His life gave us hope, joy, faith and love. Thanking God for the 21 years He chose to put Jacob in our lives.

Please pray for Steve, Sharilyn and Jake’s sister, Mia, as they continue to walk through this difficult journey. Your words of love, hope and encouragement may be sent to our FaceBook page or the Team Hally email.

Look at what God did in 2018!

Vacation Bible Schools

On June 1, 2018 we hadn’t heard from any of our usual Vacation Bible School (VBS) groups or any new ones. So as I write this article to share about the amazing things God did this past summer, it seems like a miracle to me!  We not only had the opportunity to partner with many of the churches we have given Bibles to the past three summers but added several new churches:

 

  • Heartland Camp 84 Bibles
  • Lenexa Baptist Church 96 Bibles
  • Fellowship Bible Church 36 Bibles
  • Westline Christian Church 36 Bibles
  • Louisburg Baptist Church 72 Bibles
  • LifeSprings 36 Bibles
  • Fontana 48 Bibles
  • Grace Community 36 Bibles
  • Michigan Valley 36 Bibles
  • Countryside 24 Bibles
  • Baldwin United Methodist 84 Bibles
  • Williamsburg 48 Bibles
  • Antioch 36 Bibles

That’s 672 Bibles given out just in our local communities!!!  Thanking God that His Word does go out mightily, allowing us to be used as His instruments to distribute His precious Word!

Other Bible Distribution Opportunities

We have so many exciting opportunities to continue partnerships that started in the past couple of years as well as answered prayers to finally get some Bibles into the hands of orphans in Tanzania.  So thankful that God protected Parker Yust and the Bibles to get them safely there! Also, we are super excited that God opened doors in Florida through our sweet friends the Kosowsky family to distribute both French and English Bibles to this precious church.

 

  • Brookside Church in Indiana 192 Bibles
  • TCRC in Tanzania 40 Bibles
  • Puerto Rico Mission Trip 40 Bibles
  • Haitian Church in Florida 108 Bibles
  • Mission Southside 60 English Bibles + 48 Spanish Bibles
  • TLC 36 Bibles
