This is love for all my peeps at New Staff Training this summer. I am sitting here, by myself, in Port Orange, Florida wondering where all my loved ones have gone. The crazy classes, the boring sessions on finances and MPD, and of course those wild nights at CB & Potts. I loved getting to know so many of you guys and I thoroughly enjoyed all the relationship conversations we had pre-Dr. Henry Cloud. It was crazy to see how God created so many couples this summer and I hope to be invited to many weddings in the coming years.
I will never forget the awesome trips and memorable nights, especially 4th of July in Estes and the night we were officially commissioned as staff with Campus Crusade for Christ. There was so much love shared this summer I felt like the type of Christians living as described in Acts 4:32--"and the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and soul." Man it was so beautiful and something I shall cherish forever!
There was the C&C Sundays crew. I loved those mornings when we new we would get a good message at church only to look forward to some awesome queso and questioning going on. MK and EAnn...riding in the car with you guys rocked this past summer, even with all the spiritual warfare we may have experienced with the dropping of flags on the Interstate or traveling to that strange, foreign place called Boulder. There is also the good ole Starbucks crew that allowed me to at least think I could stay awake through all those MPD sessions!
And then there is 508. Man...the summer would not have been the same without my boys in 508 and their honorary crew members. I give mad love to Jared, Mikey, Aaron, and Drew for making this summer amazing. The mornings in prayer were great and the times on the court were possibly some of the best in my life. I thank you for your brotherhood and I look forward to the love in Christ we shall share throughout the years!
I have got mad love for all you all and I thank God for what He has done this summer and I look forward to seeing what He is going to do through all of us in the years to come.
I will end on the verse that had been impressed on my heart throughout this summer. I hope you find it all as an encouragement as you raise support and report to where you will serve our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ:
"These things I say to you so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." John 16:33
