>Personal Aside

>We’ve been in our new home for just-under three months.

Jane has done a marvelous job decorating, situating (a bit of re-situating!), painting and more to put her distinct touches on it. It is those that transform a “house” into a “home.”

We have yet to find a home church. Have visited several, no “red flags,” but neither any ringing bells to signify “this is it”!

Connecting with new people has not happened as quickly as we’d like…and we recognize that takes that difficult, four-letter word – “time.” And, yeah, it also takes “work.”

There is a mixture of missing dear-friends in New York; and the anticipation of what the Lord has in store here, as well as gratitude for the people with whom we get to work, and the folks we’ve met.

“He opens doors that no man can shut…” applies to ministry and relationships.

So we pray, trust, wait. The latter is the most difficult thing.

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."

One thought on “>Personal Aside”

  1. >I feel the same way about being in Houghton– and I feel as though at times I don’t want to put the “work” into it… it’s easier to be alone, but boy does it suck.
