My Preacher Man

The reason for our move to Dallas is so that Justin can follow the calling of God on his life.  He will be starting ministry school in August.  The school is focused on missions and evangelism, which is a perfect fit for Justin and for myself.

Justin knows that he is called to spread the Word and the Love of Jesus to the nations.  He has accepted that calling.  But getting there is the hard part.  Justin, like myself, is sort of shy at first.  We definitely don't like speaking in front of large groups of people.  Especially strangers!  So ministry is going to require a lot of growth in both of us.

I'm very proud to say that my sweet husband made a HUGE step towards his ultimate goal recently.

We have attended a small group called Road to Recovery for years now.  It is lead by my Uncle Mark and Aunt Donna.  Well, Justin gave his testimony on the Tuesday night before we moved.

He stood in front of a room full of people and spoke for around an hour about all of the miracles God has done in his life.  Justin's story really is amazing and awe inspiring.  Maybe I will share some of it one day.  To make it short, he was heavily addicted to several things and should have died several times during his teenage years.

However, God has a plan for his life and He spared him.  Praise the Lord!

Now here are some pictures of my hubby doing what he was created to do...Imported Photos 00002Imported Photos 00004Imported Photos 00006
