Great First Ministry Day

Today was a great day!

We started the day with worship at our "host" church in Xalapa. It was incredible. I wish all of you could have been with me this morning to experience worship like this! Our very own NEXT President, Warren Samuels preached today and it was awesome. Clint Lyons also taught

After worship, we ate an unbelievable lunch of the best fajitas I have ever had...also wish you were here for that!

After lunch we had our first afternoon of field evangelism. We had MULTIPLE professions of faith and were able to invite many many people to the meeting of the new church that is beginning this week.....I also wish you were here for that.

I just wish you all were here to experience this with me! (Pictures to come!)

Continue to pray for us. We have 2 more full days of leadership training with the students in the morning and field evangelism in the afternoon. Warren shared a story tonight that Abraham Lincoln said that if he was given 4 hours to cut wood, he would spend the first 2 hours sharpening his ax. That is essentially what we are doing. In the morning we are "sharpening" these students and in the afternoon we are sending them out to use their "ax".

A few specifics to pray for:
1. ENERGY! We are all pretty tired from travel yesterday.
2. SLEEP! pray that we would all have restful sleep!
3. BOLDNESS! Pray that all of the first "jitters" would disappear and that the Lord would speak and use us.

THANK YOU! I wouldn't be here without you!


  1. Absolutely amazing. You are in our prayers!

  2. How exciting. We knew the Lord had you go for a reason.."for such a time as this". Can't wait to hear more, I know you will be ready for a return trip as soon as your feet land back in the US - that's just how your heart works.

    We miss you.
