Our missions trip to Antigua, Guatemala was literally amazing. I really hope you'll pray about coming with us next summer. We'll have the info posted on the Web site in August.
Right now I'm in Michigan for two weeks. I'm speaking at two different family camps, and it's exciting to see God moving . . . especially in the lives of teens who are so on fire and sold out to Christ!
But today, July 17, is Obie's birthday. So I'm really missing my furry little four-footed friend. He's at home in Colorado Springs. Darin and Brenna Gregg move into my home when I'm gone (so Obie can stay in his own surroundings) and take care of him and love on him and even let him sleep with them!
Even though I know he's having a great time with Darin and Brenna, I can't help but miss the little guy on his FIRST birthday. Yep. Today little Obie turns one year old!
This may sound a little emotional . . . but as much as I'd love to hold and cuddle Obie right now, God wants to hold and cuddle me even more! I've been away from home forever (it seems like . . . I mean Guatemala and now two weeks in another state) and I'm missing it. (That's the whole month of July.)
But God wants to comfort me and strengthen me and just hold me. What a Father!
Thank You, Jesus, for loving me more than I deserve.
More than I can articulate.
More than I can even comprehend.
I love You, too, Jesus!
