Saturday was a blur. It is early Sunday morning – real early – and it is quiet and peaceful where I am sitting drinking a good cup of hot coffee. I am ready to leave at 8:00a to begin another full (and long) day. Service in Butler, Ohio at The River of Life, church picnic, and then travel to Mt. Vernon for a service at Overcomers’ Christian Church. Your prayers are appreciated.
Yesterday I was up very early and had breakfast with the youth worker here in Butler. As a result of my conversation and the moving of the Holy Spirit he decided to accept the ministry being offered to him to come on half time as a staff member. He had been offered the position some time ago and was undecided and indecisive. God moved while we chatted at a coffee place on Main Street Butler and the young man moved forward quickly. By 11:00a he had handed in his notice where he worked as a mechanic and phoned the pastor to let him know he would be starting in the position at the church September 1st. It will be announced today at the morning service. God is good.
Then over to the city of Mansfield where we met with a young man living in the city of Columbus who will be starting a weekly Christian Cafe out of the second floor of the building where The River meets. This will be for those seeking to know more of The Lord and aimed at 18 to 28 year olds. He presented his ministry plan over a Starbucks’ coffee and we are good to go with much work to be accomplished before the start date in the fall.
Then a visit with some people from Celina (2.5 hour drive from Butler) who had come over to be with us this weekend and will be at the service Sunday. George and Linda are great people. This was followed by an appointment with the church secretary to work some things through and to minister prophetically with her. Then a drive to one of the elders over in Mt. Vernon and a BBQ and meeting. One back where I am staying a time with the pastor’s wife to sort some things through.
A normal day… I have no trouble sleeping.
