Review for Cache' Connections Live! Springfield
Cache' Connections Live! came to Springfield on Saturday, January 30th. Held at the beautiful iWorship Center in partnership with WIBI and West Side Christian Church, the event was enjoyed by approximately 120 Christian singles. Ashton Lee, WIBI air personality and fellow Christian single, started off with her cheery welcome and fresh humor. The Meghan Nicole Band then led us into an awesome time of worship - what an amazing young talent! Then, former WCIC air personality and long-time single Debi Parks spoke to the crowd about "Actively Waiting." Having married for the first time at the age of 51, Debi could really relate to the guests' roller coaster ride of singleness, from being content to being miserable and everything in between. Debi shared some very encouraging words and instructions on how to wait with expectancy and to be proactive in your search for Mr. or Ms. Right. Cache' Connections then entered the stage with the overview of the ministry and its foundation. Kim and Linda, the founders, were then privileged to introduce one of their most recent success couples, Phillis and Craig, who met as a result of participating in last fall's "Cache' Connections Dating Game" in Peoria. Craig and Phillis fell quickly in love and have committed their relationship to the Lord. They spoke candidly of how they followed Phillis' 3 rules: a) no sex outside of marriage b) praying before every date and c) that Craig must have an accountability partner. Craig and Phillis will be married on Valentine's Day 2010! Read their full, amazing love story by clicking here
Guests enjoyed an icebreaker to get the conversations started, followed by refreshments. Many took advantage of the expert photography skills of Kimberly Ann and had their headshots and bodyshots taken for use at www.cacheconnections.com or for other personal uses. Kim and Linda were pleased with the entire production, including the great work of the volunteers. Cache' Connections looks forward to coming to the area when God opens another door of opportunity.
