Today is the first day of summer for my household. I did not have to wake my daughter for school this morning. School is out and summer vacation has begun. The chance to do those things that only summer break will allow. I asked my daughter what is the one thing she wanted to do this summer. Her answer, “Eat Ice Cream!” Not the answer I was expecting. I thought she would say, going to camp, sleeping in, going to stay with grandparents, or vacation. Nope! She just wants to eat ice cream. I often wonder if I sound the same way to my Heavenly Father. The window of opportunity opens and the chance to serve Him or share about Him arises. I wonder if my response is a faithful response or do I blow the opportunity. This summer youth all over will have the opportunity to serve through mission trips and local service projects or attend youth retreats and camps. Opportunities that only come once a year are on the horizon – This is your chance – Go!
It is so amazing to me how God has worked in my life and ministry since that day surrendered to his call at Resurrection in 1994. It did not take long for me to come to understand that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is for the whole world. It always does my heart good when I hear about a brother or sister in Christ that has answered the call to take the Gospel to other parts of the world.

On Wednesday, April 8th I will be leaving to preach Holy Week services in London England. It is going to be a great opportunity to represent my Lord and preach his Good News. Please be praying for an out pouring of God’s Spirit on the people as they come to remember the Crucifixion and celebrate the RESURRECTION of our Lord.
