Wow, has it really been over 10 days since my last blog entry? Dang! I’m so, so sorry. I have been delinquent, will you forgive me? If I have any readers remaining out there, after a sparse few months of blogging. I’ll see what I can do about that in the midst of things here. One of the reasons I had a 10+ day blog silence is because the Czech Project has started. That has pulled me away from my blog. But no fear Rach is figuring out this blog thing pretty quick and you can head over to her blog for some reading in the void of me not getting on the blog train in this season.
You might be wondering what’s up with the project this summer. Well, we were planning on having a minimum 6 students this summer to make the project go, well a month out that didn’t happen. So as we prayed about it we decided to go forward with the project. We had hoped for about 4 projectees (or maybe projectors, or students), but we got two. So we are pushing forward with the project in the midst of this, I’ve jokingly said it is more of Proj-ship – a mix of a project and an internship. I’m excited we decided to move forward, because this project serves our ministry here for three reasons:
- To help us, as a staff team, grow in leadership, and also building into student-leaders, with the hope that they may join us in the future, and if they don’t that the would be lifetime laborers for the Gospel.
- To bring cohesiveness and synergy within our team here.
- To help infuse a fresh breath of fresh air, as having new people always brings in a new level of energy.
Thus far, four days in it would appear that this is happening. It also means that I am prepping talks and doing a fair amount in that area, which I love, but I’ve found it tough in the midst of still being in season, trying to set up my trip to the States this summer, doing relationship well, as well as doing community well, coming off a long, hard year and more. God is showing up and bringing balance and rest in it all. I know by the time I get used to it, June 22nd will be here and it will have been behind us, so I’m trusting, praying and working hard to get after it all now. I (we) would love your prayers for us this summer, as we push forward!
