Today wrapped up a long and exciting week of Vacation Bible School at our church. It was a blast. I got the opportunity to preach the Wednesday night sermon (which was my first time preaching an actual church service), and that night the theme was the "mouth". I brought a cow tongue as a visual aid, which is what you see in the picture. I will hopefully have the entire message on video to post soon. The whole week was fantastic and there were a number of children that got saved, and even two mothers who accepted Christ. One of the things the devil always attacks me with during events like this is a bad attitude and a desire to not be involved, but by God's grace I was able to get past that this year and jump in, and God blessed me by allowing me to actually have fun! My wife played a HUGE part in our ability to serve as well since every night I would get home from work around 5:15 and she would have the kids ready to go and dinner on the table. We would eat and leave by 5:30 in order to make it by 6:00. We would not have accomplished this without her efforts. All you single guys out there need to be aware of how much the support of your future spouse can help or hinder your ability to serve the Lord. Praise God for a wonderful wife and mom!
