Hi friends and family,
First of all, thank you! Thank you for praying and partnering with me this summer. This is just the beginning! I think I speak for the whole school when I say this has been an amazing time of learning and growing in my walk with God. I’m excited to take all the things I have learned and the skills I’ve gained into the future mission field God has for me.
A constant impression on my heart this summer has been to be faithful in the small things. God has put me in certain places for a reason (the school I go to, my church Calvary North Shore, my family and my friends). I want to seek Him in those places, and ask Him why I am there and what to do with my time. Luke 16:10 says ‘“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much’.
This week we had the amazing opportunity to attend the Calvary Chapel Church Planters Conference here in Rosarito. As I glanced all around the room I thought: WOW! Here is a room full of people faithfully obeying God and making disciples! The coolest thing for me was that just about everyone was taking notes. Nobody was ‘too good’ because their church was doing better than the church of the guy who spoke, everybody just wanted to be filled up and fellowship. The church planters were there to share their life and their love for God with each other.
If you ever have a chance to go to one of these conferences, I must warn you: you will be convicted to go plant a church! GO!! We are commanded to ‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations’ (Matthew 28:19).
I you feel led to partner with my financially or in prayer for this trip and many more in the future, here is my online giving link: https://www.egsnetwork.com/gift2?giftid=A6B7F336D73F44C
