Give Thanks:

  • I am thankful that the Lord has led several couples who do not regularly attend Trinitas to This month has been hard. In the wake of leading a college student to Christ, and having another person join Christ Central, we had 3 people withdrawal from Christ Central (one being the worship leader, letting me know an hour before evensong). But this has also in a weird way validated the “growing pains” of planting. In light of this happening, and having a “come to Jesus” talk with the launch community, Dolly and I have been meet with overwhelming and appreciative support from the launch community. They probably understand (better than I) the slow nature of the work and they are committed to this and are encouraged after every bible study, evensong, etc. This is incredible.

Trust God:

  • It is hard when it *literally* feels like two steps forward and three steps back. I am very tired in light of leading the weekly bible study, weekly campus ministry (which is going surprisingly well), teaching at Cornerstone (the Calvary school of ministry), preparing for Evensong, and trying to connect with folks in the community. It is good busy and I believe what the Lord has called us to, but it is tiring when there isn’t much return right now.

Prayer Requests:

  • Lord, I thank you that you meet us in our struggles, our pain, and rejection. But these aren’t signs that you have rejected us, or abandoned us, but that you seek intimacy with us in these things. Please let us understand the way of the cross, that we can lead others there as well.
