new series

This last Sunday evening we started a new series at our college group that meets after church.  It is on the story of God, which is essentially the Story of the Bible broken up into 24 little stories.  It great for people who know the Bible well and for someone who is seeking and knows nothing about God or the Bible.

The first night went well and I am stoked to see how the next month goes as we jump into His story and how it shapes our lives.

I hear about this from a training I went to at Soma Communities in Tacoma WA. If you want to know more check it out here.

Mom's away

Today, Sharon left for the JV women's conference in Austria.  She'll be gone for 3 nights 4 days and honestly I am so glad.  I love working for JV and this is just one of the reasons... they take care of the women!

Really, its easy to get burnt out when women are doing overseas missions.  They work really hard, whether they are single and trying to do so much life and ministry on their own or if they are married and do so much around the house, taking care of the kiddos, constantly hosting events, and do ministry in their abundant "free time."  So hats off to the ladies and hope you have a great conference and get built into and encouraged.

Sharon was also gone for last weekend too to help mentor some slovene ladies at a retreat.  SO the kids and I will be Sharonless for almost a week.  We will survive and we pray mom thrives during this time.
