CAUTION: God at Work

Yesterday went really well. During the worship service, we had the students and adults who went on the CIY and mission trips a couple weeks ago talk about our experience. It was awesome to see and hear again descriptions of what God did in everyone's lives. 2nd service we had a great time with the music and started off the service with Pam getting baptized... the look on Jeni and Joni's faces was priceless! Pam's on the left here with her new friend Emily... it was really an honor to be able to watch God working in her life and recreating her right in front of our eyes!

After services, LuAnn and I took the boys up to Omaha for lunch at Carlos O'Kelly's and really hot afternoon outside. We went to the groundbreaking ceremony for Nebraska Christian College. It was great to see old friends from the college family...and tons of people in the family that I don't know at all. I was really struck with the diversity within the group. People from so many places and generations, all pulling together because of this one educational body in God's Kingdom. I'll miss the visits to Norfolk, but I love NCC and can't wait to see things really get going in the new location.


  1. I didn't know what to think when I turned aroudn and saw my mom up there. I was so happy for her that made that decision. Thanks Mike.
    In Him,

  2. It's been a privilege to be here and see God working in your family... and to think, God started it with a cheerleader and an equipment manager!

    I look forward to what He'll continue to do in your life...


  3. I just got done writing you a letter and Andrew told me he was reading your blog! So I thought I would check it out! I came across this one and started to cry... I remember that day like it was yesterday! I was tearing up so bad in church that day when I was standing in the back and I saw my mother renewing herself for christ! It was amazing to me to see that my mom did the same thing that I had done the week before! But you made me tell her I was doing it! No fair! That trip had changed my mom in so many ways and now she helps out at the church so much! Thank you for being there in the good and hard times of my families' lives!

  4. I don't know if you'll check back and find this reply to your comment, but thanks Joni. You have no idea how much I needed to hear that today...

    I'll be watching for your letter! Tell Andrew and everyone hi for me - and tell your mom I was really sorry to see the 24 all smashed up last week, or not!
