Encouraging week - Operation Hope and New Hope Christian Academy

I've always said that I wasn't exactly cut out for youth ministry but this week has made me rethink that. I still am not looking to become a youth pastor but The Lord granted me two opportunities this week to minister to urban youth of Memphis. On Wednesday I delivered a message to the students at Operation Hope entitled All Kings Fall (based off of my latest blog post). This morning I was able to join the students of New Hope Christian Academy for their all student chapel. Students from 3 - 11 years old talked with me about Jesus and Christmas... and how much better he is than a hoverboard and a new iPad. 

These opportunities have opened my eyes to a lot and I pray that I am able to continue to minister to the inner-city and urban youth of Memphis... and youth all over the nation.
