You see an abandoned chair on the side of the street… and think this has potential to be something beautiful. You see a homeless youth on the street and you think “Don’t make eye contact.”

prayer needs

Emilio and I, along with some dear friends, like Camille, Matt Szabo and some others… have been heading out to the projects to reach the needs there. Thursday last week was the most craziest day. We went out and met two young men just porch sitting… in their teens. Talked with them for over and hour on spiritual things, the bible, God and His saving grace. We led them to the Lord. One, we did not think was listening, since he was just joking around the whole time, we found out today really meant his prayer. Emilio found him today with his head hanging low, looked to Emilio and said “if I really want to change, can I do it? will you help me”… the Holy Spirit is really getting a hold of him. His name is Jacob. His friend, also really serious about changing his street life way is Charles. Be praying for them, and their community. Also for Henry, who has a crazy street life past and present, and is seeking the Lord. We are doing a Bible study with them tomorrow at noon, something they are acceptive towards and hungry for. This is not us pushing religion on them, but them pushing us to show them Truth. God is good. Also pray for women I can reach out to to start Bible study just for them. Regina, and “Auntie”. We also met the older brother of the kid who shot a st pete police officer. Pray for him as the boys reach out. Pray also for wisdom and safety. Thursday night we also got into a car wreck. Tboned by a horrid dodge ram … see, if everyone just rode bicycles around this small town then this would not have happened … haha … but we are all okay, the car is not totalled (somehow) and we will get it back in a month…

the church planters wives

i met finally with a group of ladies, wives, of church planters tonight. we met up at panera for food, coffee, tea… whatever your fancy. these ladies, i know, will be my rock for the few years emilio and i are here to church plant. or however long the Lord keeps us here. these women are the wives of church planters. just like me. i’m the youngest married, and the youngest with even experiencing church planting. so many people have a stigma with the word church. with the word religion. but if we look in the Bible and see what the definition of church is. esp the definition of religion: to be with the widows and orphans in their affliction and to be unspotted from the world. i think we would be more willing to start churches and to actually be religious. so many ‘churches’ are going down in america. so many are ‘failing’ and not enough are being sprouted. i love these women, they heed to the call of probably one of the most challenging ministry calling. we are the driving force. its beautiful. and these churches that these woman are planting with their husbands… they are not a typical building with a steeple. even tho thats okay too. but they understand the real Biblical definition and heed to it. we meet in the most inconspicuous of places. schools that they’ve made beautiful relationships whom, would never rent out their facilities. boys and girls clubs. the park. the apartment. the ghetto. the projects. nursing homes. and, guess what. we are okay if it is just four people. it is up to God to grow. we are just His tools. Praise the Lord i have a group of women to come to. Church planting is beautiful.
