Good Times

I spoke at Warren Park Wesleyan Church yesterday. They were having their annual Homecoming service. There were a lot of things going on that day, so I only spoke for a few minutes. I gave an extremely brief overview of The Cause USA and the JHOP in DC. There were a lot of people that seemed very interested in what’s going on. Taylor set up a table to distribute Life bands and raise money for the JHOP. Between this church and last week’s church she raised about $120 to help fund the justice movement. Go Taylor! I also got to catch up with a friend that’s doing missionary work in Liberia (that’s in Africa). God has given him amazing favor and many open doors with the struggling Church there. He was extremely excited about what’s going on in DC, and was curious if we could bring something similar to Liberia. He’s organizing a converence there at the end of February for about 300-400 pastors. Apparently, they want to learn how to take back their country. I’m filing this one gently. Who know? Maybe something will come of it.

It was great to see some old friends. Emphasis on “old”. The picture is me, John Castle, Ellen Fisher and Jeff Eckart. We were all in youth group together back in the day. Me, Jeff and John were tight in high school and did everything together. Jeff’s a youth pastor at Kentwood Community Church in Grand Rapids, MI. John’s a kickboxer and is married to Ellen now. Kinda funny how you can blink and 20 years go by. I would just like to take this opportunity to point out three lush, full heads of hair on mine, Jeff's and John's heads.
