Last week had been a rough week for us.  The week before brought us some challenges, but in light of the news we received last Monday it was minor.  Cheryl’s aunt & uncle were in a car accident in northern Minnesota, they hit some ice, went off the road, rolled the car into a creek.  Cheryl’s uncle drowned.  Cheryl’s aunt was taken to Duluth and is currently recovering in an ICU.  So if you would please pray for Cheryl’s aunt Carol for healing and for comfort.  Pray for their children, grandchildren, and families.

We can rejoice that Cheryl’s uncle is now in the presence of Jesus after living a full 71-years.

This week started off well, I had the Sunday off from preaching (so no podcast this week).  I had the privilege of baptizing my youngest daughter, Lily at Valley Church.  She placed her faith and trust in Jesus when she was five, but chose to be baptized in obedience to the Lord’s command to be baptized.

Cheryl and I chose this verse to share at her baptism.

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised, (Proverbs 31:30, ESV).

Our prayer is that both of our daughters would grow in their walk with Christ and that their inner beauty because of their devotion to Christ would be far more attractive than their outer beauty.  Below is the video of Lily’s baptism.

Last Sunday I was invited to speak in between a couple of bands for RockFest, a Christian music event in Pella, IA.  I was there to represent my ministry, Serve Our Youth Network.  I thought I’d share the video with you since I had a friend there who recorded it for me.

I have to say, this has to be one of the most distracting venues for speaking with people moving around behind you and people getting up and walking around, but there were a few who stayed put to listen.

It has been awhile since I’ve done a vlog post.  I’d thought I would share some thoughts I had today about a car accident my family was in this morning.  Cheryl and the kids were headed to the girls’ doctor appointment when she lost control of the van on ice, did a 180 and took out a couple of mailboxes which took our our driver’s side windows and rear tires.  Everybody is fine, Lillian had a couple of minor cuts from the glass and Cheryl is sore, but other than that it is ok.  We even have our van back.

The police officer shared with me it could have been a lot worse if our kids, especially Lillian, hadn’t been wearing their seat belts.

Thank you God for keeping my family safe!
