Christmas break is coming up soon and my time left here in Sebring, Florida is short. Even though I'm ready to leave, I'm still plugging away at my studies and ministries that I'm involved in. Lately, I've been helping out with youth group at the Way Church with Chris Ogden. Most of the kids in attendance there are unsaved, and God has laid a burden on my heart for them. There's a group of 5 that I've been investing a decent deal of time in. I've been trying to build strong relationships with them so that they can see what it means to be a Christian. They're obviously spiritually lost, but I know that I serve a God who works miracles. I'm a walking testimony of how He can change a heart of stone into one that is full of love for Him. I'm trusting and praying that God will move in their hearts and draw them to Him. Whether He decides to use me or someone else is no matter, I just want to see them experience the fullness of knowing Christ.
So if you're reading this blog please shout out a prayer to our Heavenly Father who is in control of all things. Pray that Roberto, Jesse, Joel, Josh, and Adrian will come to truly know the Lord. Yet, remember that it's His will and not our own. Thanks!

It's been quite a while since I've sat down and wrote something on this page. I'm kind of tired of blogging. There's been a lot that has happened in between now and the last post. One of the biggest events was the Men's Retreat in Daytona Beach, Florida. We stayed at an ocean-side resort for two days and had discussions about male maturity. As far as class goes I've been learning a lot of cool stuff. The past couple weeks we have been going through the books of Acts, Romans, and Ephesians. I wish it was possible for me to post some of things I've learned but I don't have enough time in the day to type it. Today we have class at 1:30-4:30 and we are starting 1 Corinthians.
