Sickly Report

Sorry about the lack of posts. I have been nursing a cold for about 3 days now and I haven’t felt much like being on the computer. I am still feeling a little stuffy headed. I hate it when my ears are stopped up, everything just seems to come at you through a pillow. It is amazing how much something that simple makes everything else feel a little off and how that makes everything take some effort.

Wednesday night we played a couple of goofy games and I was reminded again about how powerful play can be. As our group grew it became increasingly difficult to play games in our space, but now that we have fallen back to around 25 people we can do some pretty cool stuff. And games, even games that don’t have anything to do with the lesson, go a long way to helping students to focus. Games break down walls and those walls stay down for a while and let you tell them about Jesus. It is very cool.

Anyway, since I was sick on Wednesday I skipped my usual trip to the school so I went today to make up for it. I am really going to miss my school lunch times when I school ends. There are a whole bunch of students who I only see during school and they have become a big part of my personal ministry even if they don’t come to church. When school gets out for the summer I always know that I won’t see these guys for another year. Oh well, there’s nothing I can do about it.

    Hey man, I doubt you’ll remember me, but I was interning over at Parkview Baptist Church under Andy way back when. This was like 1999-2000 I think. Anyways, I was just gunna let you know that I discovered your blog, as well as the nailscars site and have been enjoying it a lot. I blogged your blog a couple times over at Dead Yet Living (, as well as added you to our blogroll. I especially got a kick out of you Mario Party illustration. My wife and I love that game.

    I look forward to reading your blog regularly!
