Days Away

Ginger and I are days away from leaving all that is familiar and heading into the great unknown.  What we do know is this, God is with us every step of the way.
We have been so busy with goodbyes and packing and oh man!
We will be on the road Sat morning bright and early.  Friends hugged, relatives kissed, Car packed...We are out of here!!!
We are so excited to start this adventure together!
God has made His hand and power known in such great ways in all of this.
We have had to get over ourselves, get out of the way and rely on Him...what a great growing experience!!
Hey God....Thank You!!!

Sorry for the delay

It has been a few days since I posted my last entry...sorry about that.

Have been swamped on this end.  

Did a show, got a speeding ticket, wife was in the hospital over night with a kidney stone attack and then a reaction to the drugs they gave her, and very little sleep.  All that with trying to pack and get stuff ready for the move...what a week!!!

Ginger is home and still not back to 100%.  We ask for you to continue praying for her for a full recovery.  She is my best friend and beautiful bride.  I am truly lost with out her!!

The POD comes on Monday.  Going to be a busy weekend and busy week next week.

Still excited about moving and getting to start working with the kids in Georgia.  

We are starting to count down this will be our last weekend for small group at our church.  It really will be emotional leaving such a great group of friends and wonderful believers.  We have grown so much with Rick and Jan as our leaders.  We have shared fellowship and laughter at every meeting.  Everyone will be missed!!

Busy day before the last garage sale

Extremely busy day today...

Ready for the garage sale and more packing done!

The house is really starting to look empty.

These are the moments I don't feel sad, I feel like this world is not my home.

I am looking forward to the next chapter that the Lord has for us.

I pray I am never to near sighted, when it comes to God, to miss the big picture of what He has for us!

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th Everyone,

Packing and sorting and getting ready for our garage sale...when will it

What a pleasure to do all this stuff, knowing that the goal is to be working for the King and being used by Him in His service in Georgia!!!

I did not expect it, nor was I looking for it when God said, "Hey guess what.."

God, I thank you every day for what you are doing and I pray you will use me to bless everyone I come in contact with.

Amazing thoughts

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Starting the day with that on my mind is just fuel for my fire.

I know that God has planned this move and this opportunity for us.  

I feel like everything I have done to this point in my life, my successes and my failures, have prepared me to be what I am about to do for some young christian friends in Georgia.

For those that know this feeling, you know I can not explain it! For those that don't, no explanation would do.  

I am so excited. I have folks down in GA that are anxious for our arrival and helping already...A huge shout out to my awesome staffer Lynzee Patrick.  She is really reaching out to help how ever I have needed...her hard work already is welcomed and appreciated. 

Prepping and thinking about LEGOs and MAC Cafe'.  What to do first and what to do second, I am stoked.

prayer requests:
Ginger and I to be super prepared for our adventure.
Ginger and I have success at our Garage Sale this fri and sat.  (BG Peeps, come over and bring your money!!!)
Ginger and I to continue to pack and get ready for the move.
Ginger's work and her finishing up there.
Ginger and I so that God will supply all we need for the move and we trust Him to do it.....

Less then a month to go!!

It is so hard to believe that we are under one month from starting this huge adventure that God is doing in our lives.

We have been brain storming on the youth and what we are trying to use to help us reach them.
We are planning on having two separate groups,  a Middle School group and a High School Group.

Our Middle school group is going to be called LEGOs Land.
LEGOs standing for Life, Eternity, God and Other stuff.  that is what we are going to be studying!!!

MAC Cafe is the name for the High School group.  Me And Christ!!
Computer and tech driven out reach.

Our youth meetings are going to be high energy and fun.  I want the kids to want to come.
We will also be Christ Centered.  Our goals are to teach and reach.

We will be evaluating the needs of our youth as we get on site, but we know that you can not go wrong with teaching the basics of Christian living.

Please pray for:
Ginger and I as we are preparing to move at the end of the month.
The youth we we will have and their friends.
God will use us like never before
