Rooted & Founded in Love

I am very hopeful regarding this ministry season but also deeply stretched.  The greatest challenge before me is how to continue to entrust the ministry to faithful men & women leaving them with reproducible concepts and the ever deepening reality of just how much God is "head over heals in love with them."  

Isaiah 43:1 But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, 

O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. 3 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in exchange for you. 4 Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, 

I counseled with three students yesterday, all of whom lead at some capacity at il rifugio and I was a little shocked just how rare it is for them to pass time with Jesus and just receive His love.  Could you please pray for our community as I prepare to speak on spiritual warfare this Sunday?  Pray that the students would be awakened to the battle for hearts and that they would embrace God's love for them and take it to their friends and family.
