Is it just me or is 2011 going by way too fast? It is already August and some schools are back in session. Wow.
As most of you know, it has been a pretty eventful summer for me between working, church responsibilities, the 2011 Heart of God-East Africa trip to Uganda, and trying to make some final plans on how this year will end in with my transition to full-time ministry.
You can also read more updates about the HGIM-EA trip and plans for the future through the blog of EA Director Denise Matthews: here.
Very shortly after returning home, I was invited to speak to the local Rotary Club about Heart of God and my role as Minister of Evangelism. I presented everything that happened on the Uganda trip and also spoke about my upcoming time in Haiti. The response was overwhelmingly positive, with comments like, “Heart of God seems very organized in pulling off everything they do,” and “Your talk was one of the most professional we’ve had. I was very impressed.”
Now, without trying to sound too biased, I do agree that the Heart of God team does an incredible job of following God’s lead to accomplish as much as they do.
Now, as far as my personal focus moving forward in 2011 goes, I will be spending a lot of my free time studying the Haitian Kreyol language and trying to get some funds raised for that trip. As I said in my June post, I need to raise about $400-500 a month for my time in Haiti and I am looking for any churches or individuals who would be interested in learning more about the ministry of HGIM and would consider taking me on as a monthly supporter.
Here is a list of “church days” from now through the end of the year that I know I can be available, and if you have another date in mind, I can probably work something out.
