Gone through many trials but still fighting the fight!

 Hi Everyone!

Well we have had a time of it the past two years, so much so we took time off from the ministry to re-group and do some major praying. We are still going through some trials but God is bringing us through and has brought us through each one. To start with My Mom almost died in July 2013from complications from a surgery she had to repair a hernia, and ended up going into cardiac arrest and having to have 9 blood transfusions over the next few days , unfortunately she did not recover as well as expected and suffered damage to her , motor skills, and thought process so she will be unable to live alone again for the rest of her life, at the same time my sister Tina , who was battling cancer, began having seizures, and took a turn for the worse passed away November 28th 2013 , my mom is now living with my sister in Florida. This spring we also found out that Joeys dad has lung cancer, he had to go through radiation and chemo treatments and in the process developed COPD and is now on Oxygen . and to top it all off My sister Dawns husband was just diagnosed with a rare disease the attacks the vital organs and makes them rigid, so they say he only has a few months to live. Both Joey and I have been battling colds and sinus infections, I developed an acute case of bronchitis and ended up with a terrible  case of asthma and am still recovering from that. So you can see why we needed some time off, hopefully we will be back on our feet by spring next year and able to travel and do some shows again.

Until I write again

God Bless, Vicky Powell

So much has happened
Wow , so much has happened since the last time I posted. I am going to stop promising to do better with the updates because I never do LOL. Any way the first big thing that has happened is that Rebbecca, one of our assistants got married ! ( check out her wedding picture in the photo section) The next thing we found out was that Faith is not a Female! Hes a Male ! Here is the LONG story how we found out. As you know We had Feather and Faith for a long time , when they were little we had blood tests done and got certificates saying Feather was a Male and Faith was a Female. After Feather passed away we got our new baby Spirit. We have had her for about two years, and last month she laid two eggs! The lady we got her from said to just let her sit on the eggs until she abandons them because they would not hatch without a male to fertilize them. Well last Monday to our surprise Both Eggs Hatched. For five years I have said Faith acted like a Male but I had the certificate saying Faith was a female! Wow ! What a surprise! We are happy to report both parents and babies are doing wonderfully well and we will post photos as the babies grow. We are going to name one miracle and the other one Blessing. ( Check out the photos of our little ones in the Photo Section) Other good news is the Polly Cystic Kidney Disease Joey was diagnosed with a couple years ago is not progressing as fast as they thought it would ( due to all the prayers , praise God ) and they have pushed back his need for a kidney transplant from 10-15 years to now 15-30 years. Our prayer is that God will heal him so he will be able to live out his life without having to have a transplant all.Please continue to pray with us for his healing. Well I guess I better stop writing before I write a novel LOL. God Blessings to all of you ! Vicky Powell

Trip To Airondacks
In July we made a trip to the Airondack Mountains of NY to do a show and visit my family. This time was extra special because my two nieces Casie and Nina were added to the show as assistants . We had a really great time. Be sure to check out all the pictures from the trip in our photo album.

Our New Baby has arrived !
I all , Well as you know , we lost our little Feather in March. Although our hearts were broken by his passing , the show must go on as they say, so another dove was ordered from the breeder, and we are happy to say we now have a 10 week old baby named " Spirit ". We do not know yet whether Spirit is a male or female yet, but we have had a blood test done to tell. We will be sure to let you know what the results are once we find out :) We have been working on training him/her for the "four days late illusion" and he/she is picking up on it quickly. Spirit will make his/her first show debut in July when we go up north to do a show at my moms church. be sure to check out the photos of Spirit in our photo section. God Bless ! Vicky Powell

Feather has flown to heaven :(
Today our hearts are broken and tears flow as I write . Our Loving little Feather passed away in his sleep on March 7,1012. Feather was more to us then just a bird we used in our ministry, he was our loving precious pet . Please keep us in prayer at this time of grief. We are in the process working with a breeder to get another dove , since "the show must go on" as they say, but Feather will be truly missed. REST IN PEACE SWEET LITTLE FEATHER !
