Praise: We had a great student leadership training/recruitment/dealio this past weekend. About 16-17 students came, which is a praise in itself (we've had a smaller leadership this past year). Lots of learning, vision angling (casting, pun), theology and some fun and games. We spend almost the entire morning on Saturday going over some important theological distinctives that we have a a ministry and as a church. We also talk about evangelism, discipleship It was great, and had some substantial discussion. So, praise God for that! Please pray for wisdom for students as to whether they should officially apply for leadership, and then for us to figure out if they ought to be approved. The majority of them present are also consistent attendees (as consistent as college students are, anyway) at church on Sunday mornings, and so that was greatly encouraging and makes the decision process a fair bit easier in some ways.
Prayer: I'm headed to "Byron Bible Camp" this weekend (late Saturday night) to do three teaching/preaching things. I'm talking about "Joy in Christ", and haven't really had much time to work on it given the rest of...life. SOO, please pray that God would grant great productivity in the next 24 hours, and that he would move in power, saving kids and greatly awakening their hearts and minds.
