I am pleased to share with you that I completed the Calvary School of Missions on August 17th. Later that week I took a trip up to Northern California to visit my family and get my vehicle. That next Sunday, I drove back down to Southern California where I started back up at work and serving at church. Initially, I had thought I would be living in Murrieta for a time and continuing to serve at Calvary Murrieta. All while seeking to pursue readiness to church plant and do missions. However, fairly quickly, it seemed clear the Lord had something different for me to do.
Closing Doors Leading to Open Ones
During my time visiting family in the Bay area, I began to feel the Lord stirring and tugging on my heart to come back to the North Bay area. Not until September did I begin to feel more convinced that this was the move I needed to make. Fairly recently, a missionary family had moved off the field due to Covid and the Lord opened the door for them to come and be a part of my family at Calvary Chapel the Rock. In that, the Lord has opened the door for me to come back to Sonoma County and begin preparing to be sent to do missions and church planting. Not only has that door opened for preparation for missions, but also to serve and be there for my family. God is good and I’m thankful for His gracious leading.
Time To Dig In
A few weeks ago, I made the move back up to Sonoma County. Seeing the Lord’s provision for my time down in Southern California and to return home has been amazing. To everyone down in Southern California, you’ve all become family to me and you will be dearly missed! Thank you for all of your prayers and support. I look forward to visiting you all soon! As for now, I’ve been working around building projects, being part of a small leadership group learning about Theology and Discipleship, and looking for work. It’s been good to be back and to be a part of what the Lord is doing. I know this is a time to be faithful in the little things so that I might be proved faithful in what’s to come (Luke 16:10). This season is one of preparation and there are times where it’s going to be difficult, but I look forward to what the Lord is going to do.
How To Get Involved
Would you please pray? As you’ve been praying and partnering with me in that way; I hope you know that the Lord has been answering. Would you please continue to pray for direction on where the Lord will be sending me. Also, pray that He would truly burden my heart for the place that He desires to send me. Please pray that I would be faithful in this season to study well and to truly prepare for what the Lord has to come. I am also asking the Lord for work during this season that could even be a skill that I would can use in missions.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” -Ephesians 3:20-21 (NKJV)
Please stay in touch! I’d love to hear from you guys and what God is doing! How can I pray for you?
I love you all.
