Kevin’s Feet

If you know us personally, me and Kevin that is, you know I did NOT marry Kevin for his feet. They are always dry and cracking, and the toenail… if you can call it that. Ew!  But, to me, his feet are most beautiful.

His beautiful feet voraciously pound the pavement in Hancock County for Jesus – to share the gospel and to BE to gospel to this community.  His beautiful feet march boldly at the campus of Bowling Green State University giving life and hope to the next generation.  His beautiful feet canvas Ohio partnering with other church planters working together to grow God’s kingdom.  His feet have galloped with the youth and taken him overseas to reach any in his path.

Yeah.  I love Kevin’s feet.  His feet are a reflection of his heart, passion and obedience.  He has always been one to put ‘feet’ to his prayers.

And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:15

NAMB Pix & UPDATE


WOW!! We don’t dress like that every day… or any day ;p, but all dressed up, may as well take some pix!!

Let’s DO THIS THING! SERIOUSLY FOLKS!!


WE ARE ALL ABOUT THAT!

Better late than never….

Below are some pix from out time at the North American Mission Board (NAMB) where we had our interviews as Missionary Candidates for church planting and collegiate evangelism. I know I said it before, but the peeps @ NAMB are fabulous – they were so warm and welcoming, kind and gracious. We are already looking forward to the commissioning service in October (in Denver I believe).


Did I mention they made us feel welcome?

The grounds were fabulous – a great way to ‘get away’ right there at NAMB!


As Kevin shared what God is doing around us, he made his suit available for “rent or purchase” after these meetings… LOL.

Pix from our NAMB Peeps

We are finished… hanging out in ATL airport. We just accepted a deal to take the 8pm flight (ours was scheduled at 6:45) and just for being flexible to leave 1 hour and 15 minutes later, we got TWO FREE DELTA tickets (:-)) and some meal vouchers. YEA!

Wanted to share some pix from today. I haven’t uploaded my pix to my computer yet (didn’t bring connector cord) but you can visit Tim Cumming’s blog. Tim was our last speaker today and HE WAS PHENOMENAL. He is an energetic, motivational, hands-on, on mission, practical and effective missionary. Here’s someone to follow as he follows Christ! Anyhoo, there are some pix of our candidate class on his blog… and I have a feeling you may want to follow his blog as well.

Well, we have been approved and will now be sent on to the Board of Trustees for final approval – GOD IS GOOD! If all goes well, we’ll be approved June 22nd and official on July 1st!

Super-excited to get home and see the kiddos and get back to the work that God has called us to!

Where? What? How?

Where?? We are in Alpharetta, GA. Left home at 4am this morning for a 6:30 flight out of DEtroit (accent on the DE).

What?? What are we doing here?? We’re finally becoming official. We are here for our interviews to become official NAMB missionaries to do collegiate evangelism and church planting. (A little background… Early on in planning for LifePoint, God led us to become associated with the NWOBA. We are an autonomous ministry, but this partnership has been strategic in our church planting vision as well as an immense framework of support. The resources available to us and the ministry team/support are invaluable. Also, because of that partnership, Kevin has taken on the collegiate ministry at BGSU, Crosswalk. God is doing some amazing things on the campus of BGSU and it’s an honor to be a part of it! Through this ministry, as well as many other things God is doing, God is paving the way to a church plant in Bowling Green, OH in 2010 – the 1st plant out of LifePoint. We are flabergasted at how quickly this is all coming together, but with God leading, we’re on board!! He is working, so we’re gonna join Him.)

Today was the first day – an information filled day along with some training and encouragement. Everyone here is so compassionate, gracious and passionate about *Sharing Christ *Starting Churches and *Sending Missionaries. We have met some amazing couples and individuals who are willing to do whatever it takes to follow God’s call on their lives. It’s amazing! I am twittering, so if you’re following me, you can keep up with what’s happening down here with us in Alpharetta.

Some thoughts that stick out after this amazing day…

In regards to Acts 1:8, “God in His providence has brought the ends of the earth to us” here in North America. Wow! That’s a thought – and so true! Just come to Atlanta… I think Atlanta alone has just about every people group. North America is a mission field.

If God’s called you to salvation, He’s called you to service.”


How??? How can you pray for us?

  • *Pray our interviews go well 🙂
  • *Pray for God to increase and intensify our vision and commitment to His calling
  • *Pray for us (me and Kevin) as we continue to evaluate what we need to be doing and what we don’t need to be doing (priorities) in order to keep God 1st, each other 2nd, our kiddos 3rd and ministry focus next. Still trying to work out the kinks of balance/boundaries, priorities and drive… and we need divine guidance!!
  • *Pray for even an iota of rest… we are staying in a beautiful suite, and the folks at NAMB are blessing us with time scheduled in to REST :-).

Thanks ya’ll – Don’t know if I’ll get to post tomorrow, but should be able to tweet :-).

PS – Enjoyed a sweet visit with Emily who lives down here in the Atlanta area. Emily was an intern with us at SCORE and God is doing some amazing things in her life!! She took us to an amazing Rwandan coffee shop!! GOOD Times!!
