Simply Blessed

Yesterday as our church family gathered for worship and edification, we were greatly blessed by the Hitch family of Martell, Nebraska. The Hitches are an extremely talented family of musicians who travel the country proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in song.

Jim and Kathy Hitch's family ministry is named Simple Grace. This is an appropriate moniker for this godly family of two parents and eight children. Five of their kids (Avery, Lucas, Sterling, Havilah, and Bristol) still travel with the family.

The aspect of the Hitch ministry that impresses me the most is not the talent (although that is impressive), but is instead this family's humility. Even as they showed us just how good they are musically, their focus was steadfastly on Jesus Christ. They also put their money where their mouth is by trusting in the Lord to provide for their needs.

We thank God for the Hitch family's visit to our church, and look forward to it again next year.
