Wow…it has been a while…August 4…What in the world have I been up to? Where has the time gone? Am I O.K. (as one person has asked)? Well…to answer the last question…Yes, I am fine. Now on to the first two.
The last couple weeks have been pretty busy…much busier than I anticipated. Aug. 3 – 9 was the Okoboji Lakes Bible and Missionary Conference. I mentioned this before and said I would write more about this. Well…with running down to Spirit Lake twice a day (50 miles round trip each time), it took a toll on me. I found that I had very little free time. The conference was great though…probably the best one I have been too, but I am sorry that I did not write more about it.
August 10 through today has been one of reading and fall planning. One of my big accomplishments was that I totally revamped my confirmation program (this WILL be something I will share with you once I polish off some details). I am really excited about this and looking forward to classes starting on Sept. 23.
I also read another book. This one is called “God and Cancer” by Tim Chaffey. GREAT BOOK. Tim is a college friend of my wife and a cancer survivor. The first part of his book he talks about his struggle with leukemia…how it hit so fast and so hard. In the second part of the book Tim talks about the problem of evil. He talks about how various other religions deal with evil and that Christianity is the only religion that has an answer for evil. I highly recommend this book. We have invited Tim to come to Jackson to speak about his book in November. I can hardly wait.
And tonight I am doing something that will be incredibly fun. I won’t say much now but what I will say is that it involves me and a race car (mom…I know you probably remember what I am talking about so don’t worry). Be watching my blog on Monday for highlights about tonight.
So that is where my last two weeks have gone. Thank you for being patient. Thank you for stopping by. Thank you for your individual ministries…all in the name of God our Father through Jesus Christ who is ALWAYS faithful. Thank you and God bless.
