I also was able to raise some support as I shared the ministry that God is calling me to in the next chapter of our lives as a family. And I even got to speak at the University of Maryland Campus Crusade for Christ meeting. "Cru" as it is now called was exciting and sobering at the same time. I realized that I was the only one in the room who was alive the year I took my last class at the University of Maryland. Wow.
But now it is back to the effort of raising the dollars needed to accomplish the ministry. Today I will make some phone calls to people who I have challenged to pray about joining with us and try to tie up some loose ends in my schedule and take a few days off for Thanksgiving.
Today a POD is supposed to arrive in my driveway so that we can begin the process of packing up for an eventual move to Mundelein/ Vernon Hills.
- Prayer request: Have been invited to teach a group of 50 church planters in Dallas in January(19-22). Need to discern God's will about taking the time from support raising to go there.
- Prayer request: Effective prep time for the class I will teach at TEDS on Church planting beginning in January (23).
- Prayer request: Good thinking as I write the final paper for the doctoral class I took in early November.
