Pursuing Christ

This weekend was exhausting yet rewarding.  We led worship for Grace Community Baptist Church's student ministry retreat in Altavista, VA.  It was a great weekend.  Wes McMurray did a phenomenal job bringing the Word every session, reminding us that the pursuit of our lives must be Jesus Christ.  (If you have a minute, read Matthew 13:44-46 to remind yourself of what the greatest treasure is.) The students were awesome.  They came ready to hear from the Lord and engage with Him. (By the way, whoever shot me in the neck playing paintball...I want a rematch!)

The volunteers were amazing too.  Ed Martin is the most organized student pastor I've ever met.  He had things planned to the T, which made for a stress-free weekend for us.  Thanks, Ed, for having us down and taking good care of us. We love you guys. 

Late Saturday night, Tasha and I packed up and headed to Chester, VA where we partnered with my Dad on Sunday morning at Enon Baptist Church.  He brought the Word--strong--from Revelation 1.  It was an awesome day there as well.  We always love when get to partner with him. Thanks for praying for us.  God was good.
