>Lock-In Aftermath

>Just got home from yet another lock-in; this one Midland Ministries annual December bowling all-nighter. Some students received counsel regarding the gospel; and we trust the Spirit of God drew some to the Savior.
Great to see some college students home; as well as about 170 or so teens and youth pastors/workers.

But, as Janelle and I drove home I thought of the truth of something I heard long ago:

Mary had a little lamb,
Grew up to be a sheep;
Went into youth ministry,
And died from lack of sleep.

But whatta way to go!

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."
