Last Thursday was my last day working 3rd shift at Rockwell Automation. Hooray! I can't express how thankful I am to be to be home with Amy and the girls every night. Yet, it was still difficult to leave my co-workers at Rockwell. (So, if any of you guys happen to read this blog, please know that I miss you all. Be sure to come and visit me at Redeemer Church one Sunday!)
Beginning this week, I am working as a missionary in conjunction with Redeemer Church. (What that means is that I am working within the church and community to evangelize and disciple youth, children and their parents.) Also, in order to financially support our family, I am working for Frodo's Pizza and Anderson School District Five as a substitute teacher.
If you'd like, you can pray for our family in the following ways:
*Praise our Father for the missionary support that I will begin receiving in February. Pray that the Lord will continue to provide for our family as we seek to serve Him.
*Praise our Lord for the youth, children and families that are already present at Redeemer. Pray that our relationships will continue to grow and thrive as I seek to love, teach and relate to them.
*Praise God for the people we have already been able to meet and form relationships with thus far. Pray for our growing relationship with the Matthews family. Pray that God will contiue to open doors for Amy and I to meet new youth and families.
*Pray for the two new small groups that we will be involved with...one for youth and another for young couples.
