off to NCYM

We are headed today to Colorado, actually we are supposed to fly into Denver today. Please keep us in prayer. Our flight leaves around 8am today from Tulsa, we have a layover in KC and then on to the snowy city.

This will be our 4th trek to the National Conference on Youth Ministries. It is a church of Christ youth minister conference. I went to the Youth Specialites youth workers convention this year in Austin, TX. There is no comparison between what YS does and can do and NCYM. However, NCYM has more of a family feel. It is nice to get away nonetheless, and get recharged. 2006 has taken its toll on us emtionally, physically and spiritually. Headed to the mountains for a week will be great to get refreshed and recharged for another year in minstry.

“Father, I thank you for your greatness. You are holy and have called us to follow in your footsteps. Help me to walk in your footsteps. I stumble and trip alot. I can’t always see where your leading me. I worry about what I don’t often have control of. Teach me to surrender moment by moment to your reign over me. Help me to rest in you and your care. Father, as we make our way today to Denver, please allow us to have a safe trip. You have parted seas, and delivered your servants from lions, from firey furnaces, from giants and from the sword, please make a path through the snow for all of the guys and gals who will be traveling these next few days to Colorado. Some of them are on the verge of throwing in the towel. Some are so beat up that they come because they don’t know what else to do. Father, make a way for all who are weary and bruised to come and find you in the mountains. In the name of Jesus I pray.”
