In this light, the guys aren't football players...they're priests that God has placed on a football team to show God to the players.
It's been an awesome time away to focus on God....but we are ready to come home and pour out the truth and our lives on Malakoff.

These kids are the most door opening, loudest, proudest, worshipful, dress code abiding, people and property respecting bunch here.
Did I mention that they're totally being dealt with by God in a might way and that we've already had one student come to believe in Christ and some more committ to supporting international mission work.
All in all...todays been a very memorable day. A day where nearly everyone in our group was broken and contrite before a Holy God that was continually and relentlessly showing us how He is who He says He is, and how He's working in our lives, right here, and right now.

Busses full of clowns...
Everything went pretty smooth on the way to Birmingham, AL. Plenty of truckers got asked to honk their horn...one lucky prospect wasn't wearing a shirt and looked like a very healthy grizzly bear...this fine fellow got to see all our middle school girls duck for cover and say "eeeewww!!!" as they drove by. CiCi's is always a hit and I must say we did have a young lady comment on how well behaved and dressed and mannered all of our students were. I can't thank my adult volunteer family group leaders/drivers enough. They have been a huge help and the kids love them (especially when they get to be good cop, while I'm being...me). Please pray for attitudes, for focus on purpose, and for Christ to be evident in us to all.

In other news: Our home we've enjoyed here in Athens is for sale now and we're looking toward the lake ourselves for our next stop. It's starting to look like my first ministerial position could be at my home church here in Malakoff and I couldn't be more excited and scared at one time except maybe when Grace was born. All this stuff is fun, but none of it happens by accident, and I cringe to think how much life I've missed because I didn't get out and live on purpose.
