The month of July is over?

All I have to say is "WOW!" and that God is awesome! This past month has been an exciting experience. I have been able to lead worship and teach kids, youth and adults about the love of Christ for the past month in a camp/bible club format and it has truly been a blessing and an honor. One other thing, it's not over... I have a little break this week but I leave this weekend to lead a week long worship workshop for a youth group in central Fl. Really looking forward to that opportunity... I don't have any pics as of right now from all the camps but I will give a report...

July

1st week, Lake Yale family camp. 1 child accepted Christ and around six baptized that had accepted Christ but never been baptized

2nd week, Youth camp at Panama City Beach. 4-5 students accepted Christ. Same amount for recommitments.

3rd week, Centrifuge trip with FBC Chipley. 8 students accepted Christ and 2-3 students for recommitments. (Revival has broken out within the youth group here. Be in prayer that it continues throughout the school year)

4th week, Kids Bible club in Dumfries, VA. 3 kids and 1 adult accepted Christ. Around 50 kids and 20 adults were there each night for the kids club.

Prayer request concerning each week -
1st pray for the child who was saved at the Lake Yale camp, parents do not know Christ
2nd pray for the youth who were saved and those who recommitted, that they would remember the commitment they have made and stay in the Word as the school year begins.
3rd pray for FBC Chipley Youth group, that the fire would not die and that they would continue to stay strong through out the school year
4th pray for Pillar Church and the work they are doing in Dumfries, VA.

Well, that’s it for now... I'll be posting pictures as soon as they come in...

Do you remember???

First, sorry it’s been so long since I've posted anything... Sometimes a dry spell hits and a couple of months go by without an update... Hate when that happens but its over for the moment...

Second, it’s been a while, but do you remember a short little spill that I posted at the beginning of the year about "Change". Well, it’s happened, as of June 30th 2006, I will no longer be employed by the Baptist College of Florida... It’s been a good experience but its time to move on... I've met/worked with some really cool people... I've learned a lot - spiritually, socially, and musically... But it's time for that word that all good ol' Southern Baptist fear the most "Change".

So what’s next...? I'm not sure... Just know that it's time to go... short term, I have the month of July booked with camps... Three of them consist of leading worship and the forth is a trip to Centrifuge as a counselor for our youth group... Speaking of the youth group, check our website www.bcof1.com

Well, that’s all for now... Post more stuff later...

Sorry...

Just to let you know I haven't been on spring break all this time… Hardly… Got back and been working for the last two weeks. Here’s the report on spring break: Nothing... Went home and then came back. That was it. Visited some friends and family but that was all... However, next year will be different... I think I will go to Montana or Colorado and snowboard the whole week. Well, at least snowboard the first half then spend the second half recovering from the soreness of it all... Anyway, back here at the grind... Not really anything to report... Well, the Gator's won the NCAA Basket Ball championship that was pretty cool... But as for anything new happening around here. Nothing... Well, that’s all for now... Just ready for 4:30 to roll around... Feeling kind of melancholy at the moment...

SPRING BREAK

Spring Break is once upon us again... Ahhh, that wonderful week in the spring when those that are in school and most of those that work in the educational field, get a week long break in the middle of the semester... Its a great time... No big plans, just going home to the land of the Chief's and spending some time with the family... If anything eventful happens I'll be sure to let you know...

Disappointed

Well, I would have to say I was really disappointed this past weekend... We took our middle school students to a conference that was held in Pensacola. This was a conference we went to last year up in Birmingham. Last year it was great! Good music worship and the word was brought on more than one occasion. This time, Music worship was alright, not a lot of variety. Most of our students felt as though the worship leader was performing or trying to push his songs that were on his current album... The speaker did not do a great job at all... The first time he spoke, he didn't open the Word, instead chose to use personal illustrations and stories. The second time he spoke, he did open the Word... and did a bit of exegetical work, but nothing really deep or anything in proclaiming the Gospel... Matter of fact there was NO opportunity given for a response for students to accept Christ... Around 3,000 students attended this event and there was no clear Gospel presentation given whatsoever... I would have to say someone really dropped the ball...

Disciple NOW's

It’s finally over; the weekends of D-NOW’s have passed... Whew! Nah... It wasn't as bad as it sounds. Well, the first one was pretty rough but that was only because I got sick the Thursday before the first one started and by Saturday it was pretty bad. But praise the Lord we have a Doctor in our church and he was able to give me some really strong meds, and by Sunday I was feeling a little better... The first one I helped teach, the last two I was asked to lead worship. I was able to take some of our kids that make up our youth praise band at the church. They really did a wonderful job, I was really proud of them. We don't have a name yet... We've thrown a couple of names around. The one that usually sticks, being that we always play on Wednesday night, is "The Wednesday Night Band" or "Wednesday Night Band". I'm trying to get the kids to come up with a name and some scripture that will relate to the purpose of the band that also ties into the purpose of the Youth Group... But nothing has sparked their creativity as of yet... Anyhow, that's the update for now... This coming weekend we have the Student Life Conf. in Pensacola. (that's the middle school trip) and the next weekend is the Men's Conference at FBC Chipley with Dr. Johnny Hunt... The weekends just keep getting better and better! If only the weekdays could be that exciting... Maybe one day...
