OAC Bay Area – July 24th Update

Hi all!  It’s been a LONG time since I posted an update, so it’s time.  I haven’t disappeared, and I haven’t stopped hitting the streets to share the Gospel.  I’ve just been very busy.

  • I’ve had the opportunity to work a lot of side jobs, which has really helped provide for household repairs and replacing a few things.  This happened when I was off school for a couple months, so I was able to work with minimal impact to my ministry time.  God is good!
  • I’ve been studying Biblical Counseling in my spare time, which has been a huge blessing.  I’ve already seen the impact not only in ministry, but it my home life.  I spend a week in early July in Idaho going through a Biblical Counseling basics course, and it was fantastic.  I’d encourage any believer to check out the Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship and the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. They have excellent materials.  Also, please pray for Dave, who I’ve been counseling recently.  God knows the details.
  • I’m still working on starting local kids clubs.  Yes, I know how many times I’ve said that.  It’s a desire of my heart but it’s been a struggle.  I’m now talking to, and hoping to work with, a local ministry that specializes in getting kids ministry into public schools.  I’ve talked with one of their representatives, and am going through their curriculum, and it looks like it might be a fit.  Please pray for discernment, and that if it’s His will that we work together, that He will bless our partnership and open doors to get something started this fall.
  • I’ll be spending a couple days this week in San Francisco partnering with SOS Ministries, and I’m looking forward to it.  Tomorrow they have a spot reserved between Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, and I’m very excited!  Please pray for a great time of ministry.

There is a lot more I could say, but time is tight.  I have homework tonight, and them will be working an armed security detail tomorrow night after my trip to San Francisco.  Please pray for strength and for safe travels.

My schedule for the next couple weeks is below.  I’ll schedule the next month or two and post it soon.  I’ve also included a few pictures.  I hope they are an encouragement.  God bless!
