I praise the Lord for all His kindness and goodness since my last update.
These have been busy months. Over the course of this summer, we have taken a mission trip (Pine Ridge, SD), had our annual VBS, as well as celebrated our girls’ birthdays (7/11 & 7/14).
These have been blessed months. In spite of the busyness, we have sensed the Lord’s blessings. God has blessed every endeavor, and there has been a sweet sense of His favor in our church.
These have been beneficial months. God’s blessing has brought God’s benefits. We have seen lives touched and changed this summer, both inside our church and out. I truly believe we will never be the same.
As for the preaching, I finished my Sunday morning series through the book of John. I feel as if there was so much I missed, but I’m grateful for every nugget we were able to grab along the way. Presently, I am working on a series I have entitled, “God Our Father.” Enjoying these messages.
I am once again in between series on Wednesday nights. I finished a series this summer entitled, “A Portrait of a Godly Man” tracing the uses of the word “godly” through the Bible. Help me pray for direction in the service to come.
On Sunday nights, I am still working through the book of Ruth. These are fertile grounds for “gleaning.” I have enjoyed this study as much as anything I have done in recent years.
I’m certainly grateful for all that God has done, and my heart is filled with anticipation with what He will do! May we always be faithful to labor in the fields ‘till He come! May His precious name be exalted!
