Woodstock

Hey Everybody,

Whats crackin' baby!!!

I am going to have to start setting my alarm for the middle of the night, so that I can start making some posts on this blog. Cymbre just wont let me make any postings on here!!!
Just Kidding !!! I just never think about it. Anyways, I had a couple of interviews at First Baptist Church of Woodstock ( a suburb in North Atlanta), we didnt want to tell anyone in case it didnt work out! So, I got a call back after my second interview a couple of days ago and found out I GOT THE JOB!!! This is a great oppertunity that God has given us. The church runs about 10,000 members. No that is not a type-o, it is just nuts. I really dont even know why they even gave me an interview, much less given me the job! So basically, my title is Minister in Residence; which is like a step above an intern. I will be a campus minister at Woodstock High School and Woodstock Junior High. The church will certify me to substitute teach, so that is one way that I will be able to be on campus and they are also going to try and get me on as either an assistant basketball coach or more likely a chaplain for the basketball team. I am sooo excited about this!!! Cymbre and I feel that this is why God brought us to Georgia! We also feel that everything that has happened in the past 2 - 3 months has just brought us to this place. It is just so amazing to see God work and how the 8:28 principle applys (Romans 8:28). That verse talks about how God works everything for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose! When we moved originally to New Orleans, we took a step out in faith. When the hurricane hit alot of people said that well i guess you made a mistake, but I would have to disagree. This is an amazing oppertunity, and will go a long way for our future! It is just awesome to see what God can do when you completely put your trust in him and let him guide you and tell you where to go!!!

Hey guys...I am so very proud of you guys. Cymbre, I miss you girl and pray for you and your hubby often. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God doesn't do things by chance and that He works together everything for our good! You're so right, Mike. I don't know you well at all Mike, but I can tell why my friend married you. :-) I know that God constructs and builds things for his kingdom, even out of tragedy. His timing is always perfect and his will made known to those who love Him. :-) I'm glad to say I'm friends with you guys. We are tied in the Spirit and that is awesome! I love you guys. The Lord bless you in your new ministry!
