You may have noticed that I’ve been sprinting for most of the last 15 months.  God has been carrying me, but I don’t intend to live and work at that pace forever!  So this summer, although I’ll continue to work when I'm in town and to make some short ministry trips within the US, I’ll also be slowing down.  Renee and I plan to get away in the mountains to spend time with God and with friends, and in August we’ll be celebrating Hudson’s wedding!   Please pray that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord as in Acts 3:19, and that we may find “refreshing rest in the company” of our family and friends as in Romans 15:32. 
Prayer update:   The Lord blessed our team meetings.  Thank you for praying!  I feel encouraged with the outcomes of our LGBT+ discussions.  We have so much to learn about being the presence of Jesus in the lives of these people.  If this is an area in which you would like to grow, I recommend visiting this website: https://www.leadthemhome.org
