August Rush

More than a movie, August Rush is a season that Whitney and I will enter over the next few weeks. After an incredible and productive summer that found us in India and Nicaragua, found us sending out teams and interns, found us participating in seminars and conferences, and found us rejoicing over the news that we're going to have a baby; we now look toward the fall and soon-to-be-made campus visits.

As the 2009-2010 school year rapidly approaches would you please join us in prayer for this upcoming year. We'll have the opportunity to interact with students, plan trips and internships, counsel with students making decisions, travel a lot...and so much more. Wisdom, discernment, strength, and a positive mindset are all things that will be needed and are huge prayer requests. Here are some events currently on our schedule between now and December...please pray with us for these unique opportunities:

Aug 29 - Ministry Fair at Baptist Bible College (Clarks Summit, PA)
Sept 3-4 - Paul speaking for School Retreat for Bible Baptist School (Halifax, PA)
Sept 7-9 - Visit to Cedarville University (Cedarville, OH)
Sept 18-23 - Debrief and Missions Conference at Liberty University (Lynchburg, VA)
Sept 30-Oct 4 - Next Steps at Tennessee Temple University (Chattanooga, TN)
Oct 13-16 - Missions Conference at Moody Bible Institute (Chicago, IL)
Oct 23-25 - Next Steps Weekend at Liberty University (Lynchburg, VA)
Nov 9-13 - BBC and Cedarville University (Clarks Summit, PA and Cedarville, OH)

Dec 7-10 - Visit to The Master's College (Santa Clarita, California)
