And so it ends...

Well, this past Friday was my last day with CEF. I have a lot of mixed feelings about it...I'm glad I can get back into a real job, with a steady paycheck, but I'm really gonna miss hanging out with the kids everyday. But I have officially decided that this was the best job in the world, and I'm going to try to do it again next summer. I was able to pray through the salvation prayer with 5 little girls who knew exactly what they were doing, and had incredible questions that I didn't even think about at that age. I definitely got more out of this summer than any of the kids I taught, and I've never felt more in tune with what God has planned for my life. I still have a long way to go, but I think I'm getting more and more on the path God set for me.

Now I just need a job. A real job. A full-time job. If anyone knows of ANYTHING, please let me know. I can't live off CVS, so when I return to Wake Forest I will be job hunting. I'm not taking any classes this semester, so I'll be able to fully devote my time to any job. Please keep me in your prayers for this, I have a lot of financial issues that need to be settled, and CEF and CVS just can't quite cut it.

But more importantly, pray that I can keep on the path that I'm on right now. I'm starting to begin to almost start to maybe almost understand exactly what it means to have God at the center of my life, and I'm hopefully beginning to change for the better. I've already made several hard changes in my life, I'm hoping I can continue that. And, now that CEF is over, I can go back to my studies in being a man of God instead of figuring out how to childrenize the NT stories. So hopefully, more posts for Matthew. That's all I got for today, God bless and thanks!

I'm glad you had a great summer hanging out with the kids at camp. By the way, I know some kids you can hang out with all year long.

Mandie knows of two position at the day care center ... heehee.

On a more serious note. Good to hear that God used this summer to grow you. The secret to your being closer to God is simple: you spent time in the Word and you spent time ministering. Keep on doing that when you get back here!

love you brother.

I can wait to get back up there and hang out with all you kids...I'm assuming of course you're speaking of you and Mael.


You're right, I've never been in the Word like this before, and it's definitely working on me. If you would, stay on me when I get back about ministering to everyone I can in Wafo...Lord knows I'm too lazy to.

And they'd have to give me a good bit of money to work at that daycare center :P
