Living It To Riding Them

Roller coasters! Sarah and I got to experience Busch Gardens in Tampa today and we both really enjoyed it. It was her biggest birthday wish and we both need to do something fun. We kept talking about how much we wanted our family to be there with us to enjoy it. We know they could really use some stress relief in their own life (on both sides of the family).

I haven't posted in roughly two weeks. I'm guessing without actually looking at when I last posted but I know it has been a while. I've been having a real hard time slowing my thoughts and processing everything that's been going on over the past few weeks. Also, many of the things that have been on my mind lately aren't the kind of things you blog about, or at least that I would want to blog about. It's time that the blog returns to its form state and I get back to talking about ministry, which includes sharing what going on my life as well.

I haven't made a video tour yet because we seem to have lost the battery charger for the device I would make the video with. A new one has been ordered and should be here this week. Expect a tour soon.

Sarah and I are really happy here. We're missing people back home, but we love the people here at Forest Park Baptist. As we learn more about the church and discover more about the people the more we're falling in love; not to mention the love we've been showered with. Sarah's was given a cake, had "happy birthday" sung to her, and quite a few birthday cards with very sweet and encouraging messages in them.

I'm tired and my hot, godly wife is in bed waiting for me (actually I bet she's already fallen asleep; I think she is more tired than I am), so I'm off to join her!

I'll write more soon!

Good to hear! I still say you need to go to Islands of Adventure! The best ever!

We went there for our honeymoon, as a part of going to Universal Studios. It's rocked! Spiderman is the best ride ever!

Hey! That's my niece you are talking about ;)

Have you come up with a strategy yet for the youth ministry there?
Interested in hearing your plan of attack.

Bits and pieces.

I really have no youth, no parents (of youth), or anything to work with. But I do have a good number of older people who want to help, so I've got more volunteers than youth.

If you have any event/strategy ideas for get kids to come please share.

So far I've had 3 youth to come but not return. When I saw them at a later time they told me they like me a lot but they didn't like being the only person there. I have a feeling most will feel this way and so I need to probably get 8+ showing up at a time, which mean I need something to attract them.
