Anticipation for this Summer

Thought I would take a few minutes to update those of you who: 1) Follow this feed and are addicted to my life and family or 2) Have been praying for me and my family to find a new position. Well, if you are part of the latter group, there is no new news. I have sent out what seems like hundreds of resumes and cover letters with only a few churches placing an interest in us. This is partly due to the fact that most of the churches take a look at my resume and are a bit squeamish. Unfortunately a single piece of paper does not give a good picture of who I am, what I stand for, or what I could be for a church. I see myself as a “diamond in the rough” and with the right person could be a great asset and great treasure. But unfortunately a resume, cold and standard, can not articulate that.

On the lighter side of things, I was recently asked to be the camp speaker this summer at my childhood camp, Good ‘ol Chambers Camp. This will take part the week of July 14-19th, Central NY Jr. High Camp. The family is quite excited about the returning to our old stomping ground. They are focusing on 1 John 3:18, “Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” I am excited about it because this is the one thing I talk to teens more than anything…being real and allowing the truth to flow though our lives. I am excited about what God is going to do. Please pray:

1. God gives me the message that HE desires to be spoken to the kids

2. God opens up a door for MaryEllen and I before that date and that the church that hires us will be excepting and willing to allow me to take part in this great ministry experience.

3. God beings to soften the hearts of those (adults and teens) who attend Camp to hear HIS message and speak to their lives.

Thank you all for your love and prayers. I will continue to keep you in the “know”. We love you all!!
