The latest ramblings…

Every once in a while I like to give an update on what’s going on both in the ministry and with the family.

Well, here it is, in no particular order…

  • Yesterday marked one year since our arrival in Tampa (wow! that was a crazy year)
  • We have seen a church built up from an apartment living room of a dozen people to a huge room on campus with about 7 dozen people.
  • We have seen close to 70 people accept Christ since our arrival last March.
  • It was the coldest winter in Tampa in decades (seriously, I thought we had left the cold weather for good)
  • My third son Asher is 38 days old today. He has officially outlived his big brother today.
  • Drew, my oldest son, who is inching closer to his third birthday (June 16th) is not potty trained yet… and if he takes after me he still won’t be potty trained for another 10 months or so…I know, you’re laughing right now…I loved saggy diapers, it was my thing 🙂
  • Ashlee, my wonderful wife, amazes people as well as brings confusion to people when they find out she just had a baby 5 weeks ago. Seriously, she looks like she did the day I met her in 2004.
  • My parents moved to Tampa a month ago and they are officially moving into their home today. I had my dad teach for me this past Sunday at Aletheia Tampa and he killed it. He hasn’t lost a step even as he approaches 60.
  • My brother-in-law and sister are the only remaining Tampa team members who have yet to make it to Tampa. You’ll get here some day guys. Maybe we’ll be old and gray but you’ll get here 🙂
  • This weekend will mark the first Easter service for Aletheia Tampa. We are excited. I’m teaching the classic resurrection passage 1 Peter 3:18-22 (insert now “that isn’t a resurrection passage…that’s the passage where Jesus preaches to demons in the abyss.”) Yeah, I know, but it also is a resurrection passage. Read it again and I promise you’ll see.
  • I think that’s it for now.
  • One last thing…Check out this pic of my three sons. It’s one for the ages. Thanks Shay Cochrane even though my blog kind of squeezed the pic for some reason.
