Day 30 – God’s Love Is Beautiful

Posted by on Nov 16, 2010 | 0 comments

It’s been a month since the 40-day challenge began… wow! It’s amazing how quickly time passes. I’ve enjoyed it so far and am excited about the things that are happening. Over the last 4 days, I have had 5 students who were involved in BCM when I worked there (2 couples and a single guy) who’ve said they want to give – and at least one of them will give monthly. One person handed me $40. I have two possible business donations coming (I talked with the business owners at church on Sunday). A Sunday school class collected $50 and is praying about a monthly partnership. And, two other...

Day 29 – 13.1 Miles

Rising before the sunrise wasn’t any problem because I was on a mission to run the Pensacola Half Marathon. It was so worth the early morning to see that spectacular sunrise, which was one of the prettiest I’ve seen in Pensacola. On the way to the race, I picked up my friend Scott, who ran the full marathon. As we were talking about our goals, we decided to try to run together.

I’m still right about 30% on my support and waiting to hear back from quite a few people and churches. I’m continuing to pray for BIG things and trusting God in the journey. I’ll admit, I’m experiencing a little antsiness as I get closer to the end of the 40 days, wondering what will happen. I’m sure part of that, though, is my pre-race jitters before my half marathon in...

Day 27 – Encourage, Inspire, Challenge

Posted by on Nov 13, 2010 | 1 comment

Day 27 brought sweet memories of Baptist Collegiate Ministries. I attended the wedding of two students who were involved in Pensacola BCM when I served as the associate director, which also means that I saw quite a few other BCMers. Weddings like this are a great reunion time for me! At the reception, I caught up on life with a few folks and spent quite a while talking with two other BCMers who are now married. All 3 of us laughed a lot as we reminisced about leadership team meetings, retreats, and our favorite memories of each other in BCM. Nikki spent 5 years (of the 6 years I...
