Now or Later

Volume 6 Issue 4
Now or Later

Posing for our maternity shoot before baby arrives
We are mere days away from Leslie being induced for the birth of our first child (Wednesday June 29).  Right now, it is a waiting game not knowing if our little boy will arrive on his own or be assisted through induction.  But it is nice to at least have an ending timeframe.

Mike recently posted to his friends on Facebook “Have you ever been in the place where you know something is going to happen and you are just waiting for it to happen -- not sure if you want it to happen right away or wait for it to happen? It is that way with waiting for the arrival of our baby...”

Mike and Leslie celebrating 6 years May 8th, since their first date!
There are many times in our lives when we must wait.  Sometimes our waiting comes with the desire for it to come quicker.  Sometimes our waiting comes with the desire for it to happen later.

Our church has a “SERVE” day which Keynote, benefited from volunteers who did various projects for us.
The mixed emotions of Mike’s question is in some ways the same mixed emotions of what we as believers might feel about Christ’s return.  We would love for the opportunity to meet our Savior and yet, there are so many more that need to know Him.  We would love to be rid of our earthly bodies and yet we would love the opportunity to raise our yet unborn boy to place his faith and trust in Christ.

Thankfully, there is one who is in control of all of these things and we need not worry about them.  We just keep moving forward doing the things He has called us to.
What’s been happening
in the ministry ?
  • Summer Project—our bands are on the road doing concerts and our film team is just about done with their short film to head out to do showings.
  • We just finished training 2 new interns as well as a refresher for a 2nd year intern.  All 3 are raising their support to join us in the fall.
  • These past few months Leslie has evaluated a number of intern applicants.
  • Leslie continues to serve as an online missionary through Global Media Outreach.  She responds to messages submitted with questions about God and maintains a dialogue with many as they seek Him.
  • Mike continues to coach 9 staff as they are raising their initial support after having just had 3 raise their support and report to Keynote.

Prayer Requests;
  • Pray for the delivery of our baby boy. He was due June 21, induction scheduled for June 29.
