This is a long time coming. As I've jumped into ministry the last few months I've spent a lot less time at my desk. Praise God. That said, there are many of you who are supporting me that I don't get to see very often (or at all) and I have been working to setup emails and this page to help keep you updated.
It's the 3rd week of May and we have roughly 5 weeks of the regular school year left. We have new huddles started at a couple schools (since February 1st) and I am excited to see how these have grown so quickly. Knollwood Middle School in Fair Haven takes the prize with 14 new students last week alone! Plenty of credit for this goes out to Shay Mevorach - who, as a 5th grader, led the huddle last week and invited her entire class.
We are getting into camp season quickly - and I am really excited about a new camp that is starting. Long Branch Covenant Church is partnering with FCA Monmouth County to establish a soccer camp at their location on Joline Ave. and with some divinely orchestrated relationships, we are expecting to reach athletes between 10-14 years old with a low-cost, high-quality camp experience that will help raise the visibility of both organizations in the community.
I have been so blessed these last few months seeing how God is preparing so much work for our area. Doors that I didn't expect to open easily are opening themselves and God has brought some amazing people along side this ministry. It is a humbling privilege to do the work I do and I thank God for your support every day.
