God is too good to me

Bros, I am on top of a mountain in West Virginia at Snowshoe Ski Resort, looking out as the clouds roll over the endless landscape. God is so big and so good. I deserve none of these opportunities that He has given me. I have to be brief. I am using the wireless internet in the lobby of the ski lodge while my kids are in the rooms "sleeping". So I need to get back soon.

But, I have one thing to share. (Context: Jonah is angry that God gave mercy to Nineveh after they repented. He is also angry that the vine that was providing him with shade had just died)

Jonah 4:10-11
10 But the LORD said, "You have been concerned about this vine, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. 11 But Nineveh has more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left, and many cattle as well. Should I not be concerned about that great city?"

Just a glimpse at God's heart for the masses of the cities. Listen to God's passion for redeeming the cities and the masses that call those cities 'home'.

Bittersweet Change in my summer

Well, I am in a hotel in Archdale, NC right now and I will be traveling with the ministry team to two churches tomorrow. My internship ended on May 31 and I drove back to SWU on June 1. That was sad. I didn't want to leave AT ALL. I loved the church. I loved getting to know the people and working with the staff. I love the vision and mission they have for Indianapolis. Emily had just arrived up there on that previous Monday for her two-month internship and I was leaving. What a bummer. To all in Indy, if you ever stumble upon this, I loved my time up there. I wish I could have stayed long enough to actually get to know a lot of you. I hope and pray that God will lead me there again. Crux staff, you guys are awesome. Only being there for three weeks allowed me the great opportunity to pick your brains and learn a lot. You have an awesome vision, passion, and mission for the city and beyond. Keep showing that to the people. Don't ever waver in that.
Even though I REALLY did not want to leave Indy, I am now with my team and I am loving it. I know the summer will have its stress points, but I am LOVING the chance to play with these guys again. They are so talented. I love it. Check one of my earlier posts for a traveling schedule. I don't get much cell phone signal at camps, but leave voice mail messages and I'll call you back! Stay classy, San Diego!
