Two words: Ocean Kayaking.

This is pretty much the most amazing thing I've ever done at a beach.

Quick Update

Hey everyone,

We arrived at Bethany Beach, DE last night and headed to bed. In a few hours the Klicka family will arrive and we'll be staying with us for a night.

I'll post pictures and news as soon as there is some. Love you all :)

Praise God!

We were so blessed to end the 2010 Rebelution conference tour on an incredible note here in Washington DC. During the altar call following my brother Brett's gospel message, between 150 and 200 people stood to receive salvation.

We do altar calls a little differently. Generally the speaker will ask everyone to bow their heads and close their eyes. But we ask people to do the hard thing. So with every head up, and every eye open, we ask them to stand and proclaim to those around them that "Jesus Christ is Lord!"

Why do we do it this way? Because we don't believe that you should be able to "sneak" into the Kingdom of God. If one isn't willing to stand and acknowledge Jesus in a room full of believers that will be supportive, how are they to stand out in the world where people will mock and laugh at them? And the second reason we do this is because the Bible tells us that it pleases Him when we acknowledge Him before men (Matt 10:32).

Thank you God for using this conference to bring more precious children into your family.

Emails, Emails, Everywhere :)

The last two days I've been running around texting and emailing a dozen people, trying to get letters of recommendation as I apply to staff.... Oh come on, y'all can guess what it is ;)

Pray for me as I finish that up in the midst of gearing up for the conference this Saturday, spend time with my nieces and nephew, and continue to stay up to date on my debate club, from the other side of the country.

What a crazy, wonderful, stressful, and sometimes unexpected life I live. :)

More and more pictures!

I just started an album on FB with pictures from the second stage of my trip (At the Harris home in Maryland) and I figured that instead of uploading all of them here, I'd just include the link.

So here they are.

The current pictures are all of some fun I had with my nieces and nephew. Having an iPhone has been such a blessing in such situations :)

There are no words to describe the awesomeness of this picture

Great friends :)


Pictures (Part 2)

I'm telling you, Ben and I were homies with Abe.

The question is, which one of us is the President, and which one is Vice-President?

...Obviously a difference in a opinion.

I don't think there's anything to say about this one...

Back to Blogging..... Again.

Hey all,

Right now I'm resting and recovering from a week at Back to DC. I had an incredible time, met some really neat friends and enjoyed touring all over the city.... er, district.

I've also become rather proficient on the Metro system, to the point where I was helping direct other people as to where to go. I am very proud of that fact ;)

I have another two weeks left of my trip, and I thank God for everything; He gives me just enough strength to make it through each day.
