Nav-A-Jo and more

2 comments

It’s been a good week! Hard at times with certain events that took place, but I just look at those as a time to be stretched for His glory. Last night (7.26.06) here at Woodland we had an great time of worship. We learned why in the world do we go to church, then we had a time of prayer for this student ministry and some of the events that have taken place. Since being here 2 of the students here have had some major blows to their lives (mother with brain cancer, and son who lost his father to a heart attack).
We leave tomorrow for New Mexico. I am finding out more and more that this is not just a mission trip, but this is a forreal trip to a place where Jesus is not excepted and that is hard to really reach these people. It is littered with gangs, they are what run this place. People actually will burn down their houses so that gangs will not take over their homes. We are going to be going door to door to invite people to come to our sports camps, day camps, music camps. This is no joke because the houses all have guard dogs and gang members driving around. Not a trip for the weak.
It’s crazy how some stuff worked out, Jeremy Nixon has been visiting here for a little vacation well he was supposed to go back yesterday. NO! he is coming with us to New Mexico. It’s going to be amazing for us. Jessica is going to Austin, Tx for a wedding while I’m gone so that will be good for her she is the matron of HONOR in Alaina’s Wedding. We have had so much fun here Jessica and I love to go out on our Screened in Lani (Balcony) and just talk, its so great. She is working here at the Day Care and is loving it.
I am attaching the schedule of our week plus if you go to www.woodlandministries.com on the home page you can see the prayer calendar.
There is so much more going on, but man stay tuned. Also there are some pics of some of the group going to New Mexico.

We went and sang at a small church in the middle of the Florida it was so cool here are some pics of that the group pic is missing alot of us I don’t know where they were…. Yes I am even singing its crazy I know but so fun…..
