Our God is Greater

This has been one incredible month. The past 30 days have shown us the power of God and the power God uses through prayer. Several weeks ago I was informed that we were without $2500 of funding monthly and we were still facing raising over $28,000 in seed money. I was at depressions door as I spent my last day on staff at Urbancrest at work somewhere else and we were without a core team. Even through all that God has shown Himself to be strong. In the next few weeks, I will have some exciting news to share with all of you. I can't wait to tell you what God has shown us in the last week. He is providing and showing Himself as faithful. I am simply blown away and can't wait to tell you what He has shown me. I know, you want to know what I am talking about, but I cannot speak about it yet because of allowing .... well that would let the cat out of the bag. Oh, I wish I could tell you, but just wait and you will shout with me.

So we stand at $2,500 short of our monthly support and $28,000 of our seed money. We have purchased our plane tickets and our moving truck come Feb. 16th. We haven't sold our house yet, but after what I learned today, that is a done deal with God. When He is ready to sell it, He will. My God has been incredibly faithful and I cannot wait to get to Hawaii and see Him at work. In the next month, we will be releasing a website and moving. Wow, how great our God is.

On another note, it has been an absolute pleasure to be on staff at Urbancrest. I have learned so much the past 6 years. Have there been hard times and people, yes! But it has all worked together to teach me and grown me. I am going to miss all of our fellow workers in Christ and our church family. You all have been a great blessing to my family and especially myself. Most of all, I am going to miss my Pastor. Pastor Tom has been a great friend and even better mentor. If you ever get a chance to learn from him, you better. He has great wisdom and has been very loving toward us as we grew. Thank you Pastor Tom for your leadership and love. I will truly miss being around you each week but will use what you have taught me to lead others to Jesus.

Finally, if you are interested in what is going on with our family from my wife's view, check out her blog:
