All praise to God for His wonderful love for us and blessings! Sunday was a great day. We had our new Student Pastor and wife in town and he taught the Sr. High class and did a fabulous job. You can seriously sense his love for the Lord and sincere desire to serve with our teenagers. He and Sarah are both so nice and fun. I know without a doubt the students are going to fall in love with them and I’m asking God to do bigger and better things than Berean has ever seen in the Student Ministry. I know God is bigger, and I know our students are ready to be commited in a great way to see Christ magnified and others drawn to HIM. I AM SO PROUD of our students and how well you all have done with everything! You guys continually amaze me!
The service as a whole on Sunday morning really ministered to my heart. The singing from beginning to end was absolutely great! AGAIN, I was SO PROUD of our students who ministered in song. I appreciate your hearts and willingness to serve in ministry! Our church is blessed to have you involved.
For those who don’t know, I am in Springfield, Missouri. I drove up yesterday after hangin’ out with Jay & Sarah and the teens for just a little bit after church. I’ll be here taking classes through Friday night at 10pm. That means I will not get to be at our softball games, and that stinks. Please go out for me and cheer for out teams. We need all the help we can get at the games. ALSO, keep our Missions Emphasis in your prayers. We will have the Keplers and O’Neals with us this week. See what you might be able to do to help show our love for our missionaires.
Make the best of your days and every single opportunity that God gives you during this week. AND, know this one thing: I send to you the warm, fuzzy feeling of EL GATO de BLANCO’s, the sweet ride of C.C.Mbeast!
VERSE of the DAY: Acts 17:10-11 “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” STAY IN THE WORD of GOD!!
ps. one of you students has been a very real and special blessing to me by ministering to my heart- thank you for allowing God to use you!
