So I’ve been wanting to start an organization that plans short term mission trips for adults. After some thought and prayer, I got the name, Thirsty Missions. My friend Kim wondered if I wasn’t going to let the participants have any water. But really, it’s from Matthew where Jesus says, “when I was thristy, you gave me something to drink.” And basically, I guess I’m nervous about the whole thing. I mean, what if it’s not the right name? I also thought of Phish Missions today. (PHISH stands for Proclaim, Honor, Involve, Strengthen, and Help- but I am stealing that from a youth ministry I was involved with several years ago.- BUT I helped create that purpose statement then, too- so it’s already partially mine. Maybe.)
In the mean time, we are planning to go back to Biloxi this fall. How cool is that? The United Methodist camping director for MN offered to let us promo it in the fall camp brochure- but River Bend requested that we keep it to just us for now. – I have mixed feelings about this.
I have interest meetings coming up on Sunday the 9th, and Tuesday the 11th, and Thursday the 13th- Isn’t it funny I have to work those nights? I wonder how I’m going to do that.
I feel funny about recruiting for this next mission trip in the summer. NOBODY is in church. But the ones that were there sang “Here I Am, Lord”, so maybe I can take that as a sign.
This is my first Blog entry. I think it doesn’t really say anything.
