Veterans to Christ is Back into the Fray…Kinda

I have to start this article by making an impassioned request for forgiveness from all of you who were following us on a regular basis. The fact that we had so many of you reach out to us with concerns over our sudden disappearance reflects just how wonderful you guys are. The reality of the matter is that life slammed me in the face in a wonderful way, but the season came on quick and it made it impossible to really devote the time and resources to be able to continue to do this work. We made a conscious decision not to take donations, and we do not have any future plans to do so in the future, which by the very essence of this reality made VTC subordinate to other life issues. The good news is that we see the light at the end of the tunnel. The crazy season in which I personally have found myself in has started to ebb and the opportunity (and the blessing) in which to write has started to happen more often. Here is a list of things that has happened over the last year that might give you guys a slight understanding of what I have been facing.

  1. My wife and I found out that we were pregnant with twins. Shortly before VTC went on break we found out that we had lost one of the babies and that the other child had complications. The entirety of the pregnancy was incredibly difficult involving partial bed rest and some really bad news. My wife was a trooper throughout the whole ordeal and never gave up hope that the Lord would see her through. In God’s amazing goodness, he blessed us with our third child, Graham. Even the issues that they said he would have were either not really true or they weren’t really as bad as they made them out to be. In short, Graham is a perfect little boy with an incomplete cleft lip that will be repaired this month. Unlike what the doctors told us, there is nothing else wrong with him.  Thank you Lord!
  2. I am currently finishing up my last semester at seminary and will be getting my Masters this December! That said, I was not prepared for the increased workload and time commitment that last fall’s semester demanded. I am so grateful for the support of my family, but they are sacrificing as much as I have been during the last couple years. As you could imagine, the last thing that I wanted to do was to take more time away from them.
  3. A new and incredibly demanding new job at an unbelievable ministry (more to follow) leading two incredible teams.

Those are the three big deal events, but this isn’t even a complete list. The rest of the staff has been dealing with similar or more dramatic situations, yet our heart for this ministry has never wavered.  We will try to slowly come back over the next few months. We might not publish as often as we would like, but we will be publishing.

We love you and we are so grateful for you!

Blessings in the name of Jesus Christ, the name above all other names!
