This week we have been processing an appeal letter/ministry update (actually a series of five letters) and we’re getting more efficient in producing them. Since during the summer our office is closed on Monday and Friday, the same amount of work gets squeezed into three days, so the efficiency is borne out of necessity.
My family were invited to visit with a friend at their cabin “up north” last weekend. With recent (constant?) stresses, it was a blessing to “get away” for a while.
Anna was unable to join us as she had previous plans with friends that kept her home, plus she was scheduled to work on Monday and we planned to stay until then. I had to be back mid-day for an appointment, and we all wanted to be back for Anna’s concert with the Medalist Concert Band that evening.
Let the blogging begin. It took me a while but I finally got WordPress to work on our Web server. Now that I’m staring at a blank page, it seems I have nothing to say. Hmmm, that has never happened before. Well, I’m sure I’ll get in the groove.
This blog will chronicle the ministry I have here as Director of Communications and Publications for FaithSearch International. Since you received information on how to find it, you already know something about me. I’m in the early stages of developing a personal support team, so this vehicle will be important for letting you know the latest details. Your interest in my ministry–and your prayers and support–are important to me. I’m strongly convicted that having a team behind me makes anything I attempt to do for God’s glory more powerful and effective.
Now that the blog is up and running, I’ll focus on tweaking its look and feel to reflect who I am and what I do here. The patterns and habits of communicating with this tool will no doubt grow and change over time.
Don’t let this be a one-way street, however. One of the benefits of this communication channel/medium is that you can comment and react in real time. I look forward to hearing from you as well.
For now, and until then, I remain your servant and instrument for advancing God’s Kingdom.
