2007 Year End Review

I was sent an “end of the year questionnaire” from my pastor. When I saw it in my inbox I thought ..”I don’t look forward to this..” However, when I finished I was really glad I took the time to fill it out. I would challenge you all to take the time to fill it out.

Based upon what I filled out I decided to focus on somethings this year. I spent some part of my day, the first day of the year, with everyone of the highschool guys I think want to do something for God. I also called all the high school guys I have influence upon and spoke with them on the phone. It was a small step, but it was completely in the right direction.
