christina and i have some cool things happening this summer.
1st of all, we’re taking a group of 10 students out to glace bay, nova scotia for 10 days from june 27-july 7. we’ll be working with dave and shirley sawler who are planting churches in cape breton. we’re really excited about this and it’s so cool to see the students getting excited as well. pray that God would continue to guide our steps.
2nd, we have this amazing opportunity. for 3 weeks in august we’re heading to europe with greater europe mission to get our feet wet in the area of church planting, or as david fitch puts it, “seeding missional communities.” this is an area that christina and i have felt like the Lord might be leading us towards. we’ll spend the first week in hungary at a gathering of GEM’s church planters from all over europe. awesome. then the second two weeks will be spent walking the streets of paris getting a feel for the people there and getting involved in different things that God is doing there. here’s the kicker, all of our expenses are paid for. flights, trains, food, shelter. it’s paid. cool. so needless to say we’re pretty excited about this. i’ll be talking to the staff at church about this next week so be praying that they are supportive of this incredible chance we have.
it’s a lovely friday. get off the internet and go play.
