presentation tomorrow…prayer needed

Photo on 5-31-13 at 1.29 PMOver the past couple of years of blogging, I have shared on a couple of occasions how I have to occasionally speak to churches and various other groups.  Whenever I am speaking about the ministry I serve with here in Southeastern Kentucky or about my family, or things of that nature I do great and could talk forever.  However, when it comes to putting together a devotion or sermon, I am a nervous wreck.  I think part of it has to do with just the great responsibility that comes with handling the Word of God properly and well.  Whenever, I am teaching or preaching from the Bible I want to communicate clear easy to understand truth about the love of Christ to whomever I am talking to.   And so as I prepare to do that I get really nervous about it and wanting to do well.  I know that God’s in complete control and I am just a vessel that He has chosen to use for the moment.  It’s His words and truth coming through me.

So, here I sit, preparing for another speaking engagement at a church retreat tomorrow.  I am sharing about our ministry with KMM and then talking about service and being a servant.  Please pray for me throughout the day and night today and about 8:30 Saturday morning if you think of it.  I know God can use me and pray that I will be calm and clear communicator of His truth…

up all night…

2013_End_of_School_Lock-INTonight we are having our End of School Teen Lock-In at the Rec Center and are expecting around a hundred 7th-12th grade students to join us.  Throughout the night we will have bowling, cosmic bowling, games, prizes, karaoke, and much more for the students to enjoy.  As always though, our main focus is on sharing Christ with these students.  KMM Missionary Scott Brandenburg will be sharing a devotional with the students about 1 am where he will share the Gospel.  Please pray that students will be open to the message and that Scott will be used by God to reach the students.  We are still in need of chaperones for this event and would love to have you join us!  If you can’t join us, please join us in prayer for needed staff, for lots of energy, and most importantly that students will give their lives to Christ!
