Today was a productive day. Currently, we’re booked for a Sunday meeting in December, at Lifegate Baptist Church in Ellisville, MO, and a missions conference in Heritage Baptist Church in St. Louis, MO in February. I wasn’t really sure how the whole calling Pastors thing was going to work, but it turned out to not be so bad once I got started. Sure appreciate the graciousness of those guys. I’m finding it to be rather challenging to work the needed calling around my job schedule, which has been very busy of late. I’m looking forward to getting the requisite 10-15% support we need to live on, and/or a full meeting schedule, so I can quit my job and do this full time. Hate serving two masters. Just isn’t fair to my current employers, and puts a real drag on my real calling, which is deputation.
As of now, the prayer card design is done, all but the family picture, which should be back from development early next week. We’ll be getting it off to the printers after that, and should receive the output not too long thereafter. Our letterhead (for prayer letters) is done, and our slide presentation script is complete. We’re working on getting the pictures selected and organized, and are picking out the music. We’ve booked the third week in August to go back down to Chattanooga to work with Jerry Dwire and get the slide presentation done. That leaves the display, for which we have all the component parts. We just need to finalize the design, and we should be all good after that. In the meantime, I’m calling pastors as often as I can find time, which is tricky, because pastors keep business hours too. Pray that I’ll get adequate time, and a full schedule quickly, so we can enter the full time phase of deputation soon.
Interesting days ahead….
