ministry...

few things bring me more joy than watching ministry collide with the lives of the students i get to serve. it's like you can visibly see the lightbulb explode when something clicks in the middle of a spiritual conversation.

the lessons God teaches me through the conversations i have with students astound me, and i'm so thankful for the opportunity to do what i do.

we're rapidly approaching august... which means the fall semester is less than a month away. i've been planning, praying, preparing... all in attempt to align our ministry with what God wants to do on our campus.

may God find me faithful as we prepare to serve and share His Gospel.

in the words of martin luther...

i came across a quote by martin luther that explains a lesson i'm learning right now, "Pray, and let God worry."

usually the end of the semester and summer provide an opportunity to slow down and recover from the craziness of the school year and BSM ministry. that has not been the case this year. the past few months have proven to be difficult and draining for myself and my family. i'd attempt to fill you in but i'm pretty sure i'd develop carpal tunnel b/c of the shear volume of the update, and that does not sound fun.

i've spent a lot of time attempting to process the happenings of the past 4 months, trying to understand what God's doing in my life and the lives of the ones i love. sanctification is hard and painful, but thank God we don't walk through the fire alone.

God's grace continues to be sufficient, and for that, i am so thankful.
