Can I Brag?

Ever have one of those days, weeks, months where you wonder if you are even making a difference? I do. And then a kid from our youth group where we did a mission trip to Guatemala, when we were only volunteers, pre seminary, finds us on facebook and writes something like this....

Not a day goes by that I don't have reminders of you and your AWESOME wife. I am a youth pastor... My passport is FULL of stamps to and from Guatemala. My precious baby girl...well 4 yr from Guatemala. You both are on my hero list for sure. Thanks for pouring yourself into my life. It mattered. I am so happy to...well sort of see you...through Facebook! :-))

To God Be The Glory Great Things He Has Done.

Aww! That's so awesome. Ya'll impacted our life so much too. Alan probably would not have ever been on YL staff if ya'll hadn't been faithful doing YL in Woodbridge since he'd never heard of YL when I introduced him to it. I also wouldn't have spent 6 years as a volunteer leader. There is a wonderfully long list of kids from Radford and Pulaski who met the Lord over those years. That legacy of lives changed by the Lord can be traced back to my awesome small group leader and my awesome YL leader. =) Love you.
