It is officially only one year until Heather and I get married. The church has been reserved. Oh my goodness. Only 366 days to finish my internship, finish my schooling, and find a job.... near Heather. Oh my. Oh well. That which needs to get done gets done. So all that will too. Rawr!
My internship is going well. Most of my time I spend in the basement of Arza's house. Today I started planning a new program. A simple teen worship service. No bells. No whistles. As much of a public place as we can manage, as much of a band as we can round up. Worshiping God figureing out who this Jesus Christ is and what is this Christianity He started.
Hello to all the good people at NGCC who just found out about my blog. I miss you all. I pray that the youth of NGCC will grow spiritually and in numbers. It is my hope that you can find the leadership for the youth you need. It may be closer than you think. It may be you.
I've started playing my bass again. It seems everytime I go back to playing it I learn something new. I've finally gotten the pat of worship songs yay! Gotten.... is that a word? Anyway I hope that we will have a sound system for the teen worship program. Then I can put it to good use. Heather comforts me: "Time will tell"
I was able to hang out with the kids some more this past week. Its been 2 weeks since I've been here. I went to camp and saw 3 of the kids. Went to a baseball game to see a couple more. I went and saw 2 of the boys and we did a slideshow together. Finally, I went to the diner where one girl works and ate some onion rings there. I'm alot happier that I just got to see them. I threw out one of my lessons at the last moment on sunday. I didn't like the one in the book, so I went off of that theme. I did the same lesson on wednessday. There was a skit a girl and I did and she wore my grey hoodie. So as I was welcoming everyone I pretended I smelled something nasty. So I sniffed around till I got to her. So I told her to take off that hoodie and put on this nice red jacket. I left the room and she took off the red jacket and put back on the hoodie. I came back and was shocked at what she did. Why would you put back on that nasty thing? Why when we are clothed with Christ do we sometimes put back on the disgusting clothes of sin?
May God hear our prayers and smell a sweat fregrance.
