In The Beginning

Well, I learned what a blog was only a short time ago. But it sure seems like a great way to keep everyone up to date about what's going on in the life of the Locketts. So welcome to my...BLOG! I will attempt to keep a current online journal of events and thoughts as Kim and I step out into the unknown. What unknown would that be? After 13 years of marriage, four children, a 12-year career in advertising, and 7+ years in Colorado we're shifting gears in a major way. We feel like God has called us to join in full-time Christian ministry with an organization called The Cause USA. We will be relocating our family to Washington D.C. and helping to lead an internship for young people. The Justice House of Prayer is a round-the-clock intercessory ministry on capital hill. Young people will receive intensive training in three main areas: intimacy, justice and governmental intercession. 1 Timothy 2 is at the core of this assignment- to do the "first thing" of praying for those in authority. I believe we are living in a NOW moment in our country's history. Now is the time for the Church to arise in all her beauty and splendor. Our desire is to see nothing less than massive revival sweep over our land. Could God be preparing America for another Great Awakening? Kim and I want to be obedient to God and lay hold of the calling He has for us. We believe He has a part for us to play in the unfolding drama.

We have been taking steady steps in this direction for some time now. We are due to move to DC in about a week and a half, and our house goes up for sale tomorrow. We've spent many sleepless nights recently getting it ready to go to market. Tonight will be no different. Hopefully all will be complete by tomorrow morning. I can't help but think about how we're nearing the point of no return.
