Whew! You didn’t revolt. Thanks for that!
We’re very happy to be back from our vacation, and we are thankful to those of you who prayed for us. All went well with the travels and we had a relaxing and restful time with family and friends. We bragged on you everywhere we went!
I hope you all get jobs some day that you love as much as I do! I hope you obey God now and let Him lead you in His will all along. As long as you’re obedient to the Bible, you can’t miss His plan for your life. (Read that last sentence again… it’s a good one.)
Being a youth pastor is not what’s great… doing what God has for me is what’s great! If you’re obedient to God’s Word and are in His will, ANY job you work can often be a joy… for me, it’s a job I even look forward to getting home from vacation to work! I love that!
Bro. Ken told me that I would have been proud to see you last week with our “Be Our Guest” stuff. I wish I could have seen it, but it sure sounds like you’re acting on what you know to do… that’s a great step.
Finally, thank you so much for our picture on Wednesday! We happened to be at a restaurant with 2 other youth pastors and their wives, and we were SO happy to show them all your pretty little faces. We love you, teens.
