Last Weekend. . . . Work, This Weekend. . . Celebrate

Last weekend, Power Supply worked for a Sheaves for Christ carwash. This weekend, we celebrated!

Five graduates from our church have made it! Amanda Collette, Ashton Foster, Daniel Elmore, Melissa Mills, and Caleb Stark are our graduating class of 2008. Our hats are off to them as they now enter the “real” world.

This year Amanda’s graduation will be etched down in history. At her graduation from Enterprise High School, First Lady Laura Bush gave the commencement address. It was pretty interesting watching it all unfold especially with the Secret Service involvement. She gave an inspiring speech and all the grads got to shake her hand after they had received their diplomas. Mrs. Bush came because President George Bush came to Enterprise in March, 2007, when a wicked tornado came and destroyed the school. The aftermath of the storm left eight students dead. Four of them were posthumously awarded diplomas on Thursday night.

Friday night, we went to see Daniel Elmore, Ashton Foster, Melissa Mills, and Caleb Stark graduate. This is my old alma mater. I sang with great gusto the first two lines of the alma mater along with the Rehobeth High School graduating class of 2008. You can see the graduation pictures here of EHS and RHS.

On Saturday, we had our annual graduation party for all the grads. You can see the pictures here.

These Kids Are Incredible!

Memorial Day Weekend kicked off today and the vast majority of Power Supply, our youth group here in Dothan, was in fine form. Our youth group was not at the lake or the beach starting summer vacations but they had their sleeves rolled up and worked at a car wash. It was all-out work. . . . they had a tremendous day and raised $$$ (of which we are keeping a secret so the “enemy” does not find out how much we have).

Sheaves For Christ is a program that helps the United Pentecostal Church, International lend support to home missions, foreign missions, our Bible colleges and Urshan Graduate School of Theology, just to name a few of the things SFC supports.

Our General Youth President Shay Mann had the following words at the General Youth Division Website: “We cannot just arbitrarily choose an ending at the conclusion of this campaign, we must write the story now.”

Today, President Mann, Secretary Williams, Promotions Director Francis, we wrote a small part of the story that we have joined. . . . We are pushing from our end. . . . thanks for the challenge. . . .

Power Supply. . . . My hat is off to you!

Preaching and The Conscience

I am preaching a series of messages through the life of Peter at the moment and it has been a blessing to me to dig into the early stage...
