Ministry is always good for a surprise. Some of them are ones that make you weep, some make you laugh.

May our great God always be pleased as we lean heavily into Him - our frailty is what funnels all honor to Him. My limitations are humbling, yet tell the story of His great grace: He works in spite of my limits.
