 A Word of Thanks God, you are unwaveringly good. I pray that as you continue to bless me I will in turn be able to bless those around me. God, no one can outgive you. I thank you (though admittedly not enough as I should) for the good gifts you pour into my own life and for the gifts I see you giving others each and every day. And if you never give me another good thing for the rest of my life, God you have already given me too much. I love you and I know you love me. Amen. As for my supporters, I know I say this often but truth is truth is truth and it's worth repeating: you are just one example of the physical blessings God sees fit to give me every day. Any learning I've been doing, any student I study the Bible with, and any purchase I make I do so with the humility and the thankfulness and the confession that, in this season of life, I can only do those things because of you all. I thank God every time I think of you, and I think of you every time I thank God. A Word of A
A Word of Thanks As always, thank you never goes without saying. So I'd like to begin this blog with a prayer of thankfulness: God, you are so incredibly good. Thank you for being a God worthy of praise, for being a God that sees and knows us intimately, for pursuing us. Thank you for pursuing me, my heart and my mind. Thank you for pursuing all of us. Thank you for the opportunities you've placed in front of me this year and that you will put in front of me this next semester. Thank you for all of the people in my life who have decided to partner with me this year and support me in my ministry, either financially or with their prayers and advice. You have truly blessed me so that I, in turn, may try and bless others around me. You are so good and so faithful and I am thankful every day for you. Amen. Now, for all my supporters, I feel like a broken record but I mean truth is truth is truth and it's worth repeating: this year, and all I've experienced and learned, would

 A Word of Thanks Per usual, I would like to begin this months blog with another prayer of thanks to God as well as a brief letter of thanks to all of you. God, I am consistently left in awe of you. Words truly escape me when it comes to how good you are. Thank you for being a God who is worthy of our praise and adoration. Thank you for being a relational God and for making us relational beings. Thank you for sending your son so that we may find life and have it to the full. Thank you Christ for being our Lord and savior. Thank you Spirit for your consistent presence and activity in and through my life and the life of my brothers and sisters in the faith. Continue to guide and teach my, o God, and continue to bless me so that I may in turn bless others. Amen. Another month in the books! Another month of learning and serving made possible by you all. Thank you never goes without saying and I want to once again say just that; THANK YOU!! I know I've said it before, but what I am doin

A Word of Thanks... I truly believe that thank you never goes without saying, so I would like to begin this months blog with a prayer of thankfulness to God and by showing my sincere gratefulness and appreciation to all members of my prayer and financial support teams: God, you are far too good to us. Thank you so much for being a God worthy of our praise. Thank you Jesus for being a savior and king worthy of emulation. Thank you Spirit for being a constant source of encouragement and guidance, for challenging when necessary and affirming when needed most. Thank you for equipping me to meet and serve the young men and women in my immediate ministry. Thank you for giving me an entire team of fellow students and apprentices so that I have people to learn and to grow with. Thank you for any and everybody who has decided to join me in my ministry by financially supporting me, and thank you for all who have asked me questions and prayed prayers on my behalf and on behalf of the teens who ha

  WOW WOW WOW! Where to begin... It has been such an incredible first month of the apprenticeship and I have so much to update you all on but first, some thank you's are in order. First and foremost, thank you and all praise be to God! We serve an incredibly good God, one worthy of adoration and full of mercy and grace. Amen! He is already moving in some pretty big ways in the hearts of these teens as well as in the minds of my fellow apprentices.  Thank you to all members of my financial and my prayer support teams. None of what I will be updating you on in the coming months would be happening if it weren't for your faithful support and your earnest response to the invitation to join me in my ministry this year. Through your support you have purchased everything from lunch to football game tickets that have allowed me to try and point teenagers to our Lord Jesus Christ! You are doing just as much as I am, and God is doing all of it. I am truly thankful to God every time I thin
