my first year in guam is coming to a close, or at least the college year. now is the time i start evaluating everything we've done. i have to look at all the notes from our events, rehash all the bible studies, and wrestle with every event or idea that didn't get a followup. this is a stressful time for me. i've always been a tough critic of my own work or ministry, so at times i can focus on all the unfinished or the "unsucessful", or the "not so attended."
But this year, this semester, will be different. i'm going to first celebrate the blessings. i'm going to purposefully praise and give thanksgiving first. the good things we've seen are from Jesus anyway, so before i get frustrated at myself or guam, i'll celebrate Jesus.
i'll let you know how it goes and the specifics as we go along.
