God Changes History!
Our God is amazing. He is carrying out a plan to change history and create a people who reflect his own glory. Tomorrow I have the privilege of preaching on Titus 2:11-14 and proclaiming the wonderful strategies of the Lord. Paul shows us that God breaks into history, removes rebellion, and claims a people as his treasure. Pray that I can present these truths in a Christ-honoring way tomorrow. Wherever you find yourself tomorrow, I hope you also have the joy of seeing God’s character and actions through his Word.
Thank you for your prayers for our two recent conferences. The conference on biblical counseling was very practical. Many were impacted by the practical truths in God’s Word and the way they can be used as tools for problems we face in our lives. The pastors’ conference was a great opportunity to dig into theological truths and think about them on a deeper level. We spent the most time considering several facets of the gospel and how they impact our position as Christ’s followers. My hope is that these leaders will be better prepared to present truth in their various ministry opportunities.
First Baptist Church in Newton, Kansas is in the planning stages of sending a team to do ministry in Ecuador. Early next month three team leaders will be here for a few days to work on those details. Pray that we can use the time well and develop plans that will prove to be very useful for the upcoming ministry experience.
Our school year continues until the end of June. Kristi is entering the busiest time of year in her sixth grade classroom. Pray for details related to the sixth grade play, graduation, and end of year activities. Praise the Lord for the growth she has seen in her students this year.
We will be back in the US again this summer—from July 2 until August 23. We hope to connect with many of you—especially those we didn’t see last year. Pray for wisdom in planning our schedule, and pray that the time would be helpful for increasing our financial support.
