today i am going to start reading ‘the imitation of Christ’ by thomas a kempis. i’m excited because i’ll bet it’s a good book!
the other day Christina and i went out and had a productive day of wedding junk. we booked our reception hall, caterer, looked at a potential church and even met with a mortgage dude (we want to buy a house!). needless to say, i’m pretty pumped about being with Chris for life.
life as a pastor/missionary isn’t easy. right now i’m part-time at the church and working up to part-time at the shop. i say, ‘working up to part-time’ because i have to raise my own support (hence the ‘missionary’ status). so, if the Lord speaks to you to give me some cash, please listen. i wouldn’t mind it if the church asked me to come on full-time right about now, because it would be nice to have a steady income leading up to the wedding. sometimes ministry is freaky, thank God (literally) that i’m not in it for the $$$.
