I really don’t have much to post about but for one reason or another I felt like I should blog about something. I guess I’ll talk a bit about “my life”. Things are going really well for me right now. Honestly, I did not picture my life like this at 22 when I envisioned it a few years ago. I really could not be further from my desires of yesteryear but at the same time things are wonderful. Its interesting how much you change in just a few short years or even months. Recently (July-ish) I became a Jr. High and High School leader. I’ve always wanted to work with High School kids but I never really had any desire to work with Jr. Highers. I always felt like I would not be able to relate to them. Oh how I was wrong. Our Jr. High-High School student ratio is probably at 10:1. I love these kids. Its really exciting to see some excited to grow in their faith. At the same time its a challenge for myself and the other leaders to get most of the kids to care at all. I have to admit that I was worried that the students would not like me… I know, selfish selfish Tim! But thats the truth. Man I was wrong. They like me just fine and think I’m pretty cool too! Lord knows that is far from the truth πŸ˜‰ But honestly, even if they didn’t think I was cool, I just want to see them grow and mature into men and women of God. My short experience helping out has probably challenged me more than I have in the whole past year. I’ve been reading my Bible a lot more, praying daily. It’s really cool. This is the first time I’ve been excited about something church related in a long time. And guess what… its not even worship related! (though I still love being a part of worship).

Last month we had a scavenger hunt to kick off the new school year. Here a picture of the winning team! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I told the kids to make angry/intimidating faces… Unfortunately I was the only one who listened to my request. Maybe I don’t have as much of an influence on them as I thought! πŸ˜‰
