That was the beginning of a friendship that has grown tremendously over the last 8 1/2 years. Jonathon is now the Kid's Pastor at that church in South Carolina doing a phenomenal job. He called today to let me know that they were over 500 kids. It is awesome for me to hear this for a few reasons: 1. When I left SC a little over two years ago, it was my prayer that the ministry would continue to have an impact on the boys and girls of the community, obviously it is; 2. The team of people that we left behind still has a vision for greater things to happen in the lives of kids; 3. And the final most important reason is that a Young, Talented Kid's Pastor is "hitting it out of the park" for the kingdom of God.
I am really proud of Jonathon and Kimberly and all they have been able to accomplish. I know that Greater Things are yet to come and I can't wait to hear all about them.
