2010 has been the most memorable year of my life. In February, my youth group had a winter retreat. The worked greatly in that weekend. My friend Stephon had a great testimony of how the Lord worked in his life. In March my Church had the Galkin Evangelistic Team for revival meetings. Their awesome music, and great preaching spoke to me greatly. Will Galkin’s message on the Psalms of David where David exclaims that he has quickened him really spoke to me. The concert on Thursday night of that week was awesome. They have been blessed with great talents to worship and serve our Lord.
The Summer of 2010 was the best summer of my life. I started off by going to the Wilds Christian Camp for CIT. There, i met some great friends, and the Lord worked greatly. The main thing was leadership, and how I must take leadership in my school and Youth Group. I got home after 2 great weeks of camp, and then 4 days later i left for the Philippines to help out with evangelistic campaign led my SMCI director Mike Redick. Those 2 weeks were one of the most life-changing weeks of my entire life. I have never seen God work so much before. Thousands of kids were saved in just the two weeks I was there in Dumaguete, Negros Oriental. (See “My Personal Testimony from my Time in the Philippines” earlier in my blog)
Then in October Pastor Mike and Mrs. Redick came to our Church for our Mission Conference entitled “The Unwasted Life.” The Farmers also came, and it was a great time to see friends from the e-camp again. My favorite part of that was the round table discussion with Pastor Mike and Mrs. Redick. The told awesome stories of God’s work!
2010 was a great year of seeing the Lord at work; i will never forget the memories of this awesome year. I cannot, however, dwell on this year and stay “parked” in the year 2010, because the reality is its 2 days until 2011. Paul writes to the Church at Philippi, that he forgets those things which are behind and presses on to those things which are before. That is the mentality that I want heading into 2011!
