Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears. Philippians 1:3-6 MSG
As I am writing this I am praying this verse over you. My heart is filled with gratitude and joy when I think about how faithful you have been in supporting us.
Thank you and we pray all is well with you. Just wanted to drop you a quick line and give you an update on what’s been going in our world.
God is definitely moving and I feel like I am just trying to catch up. As far as ministry, things are going wonderful. God is continuing to expand our ministry and reach here in Nashville.
God has been so good and faithful throughout our time here. I could tell you countless stories on the lives that you have helped changed and what we have been able to do together for His Kingdom.
But will save that for another time. I was sharing this with our youth about this past winter and going into the spring.
As faithful as God has been, if I am being completely honest this has probably been the toughest season in our ministry. God has put us in very uncomfortable situations and has been teaching, molding, exposing things in my heart.
He never makes us too comfortable. Let’s just say I am more confident, secure, of who I am in Christ than I have ever been in my life.
The verse that I have been holding on to is James 1:2-4 and it says: "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
We would love to hear from you and know how we can be praying for you. We love you and think about you often.

This ministry gets to reach the next generation, the lost, and those who are in need. It will not be possible without your financial partnership and prayer. Thank you so much for being a part of the work that God has called us to do. Be blessed always.
