They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I’ve got two pictures for you today that are worth a thousand words and then some. For me they represent why I get out of bed every day.

The first is of our most recent Cross Point campus that was planted in India. The small group of believers that we’re working with there asked us a couple months ago if they could plant a new church called Cross Point that would follow our church values. It’s our smallest campus but maybe the one I’m most excited about right now.  They just moved to their second location to accommodate their growth. This is the first Christian church ever planted in this particular village. First one EVER!

The second picture is a moment I’ll never forget. 10 years ago when we moved to Nashville, Brandi and I bought a house in a neighborhood that would provide us some cool ministry opportunities. Over the past several years God allowed me the privilege to baptize 4 out of 5 of the guys who lived in our cul-de-sac.

Until Sunday.

Sunday I was blessed to baptize the 5th one.

10 years of prayers. 10 years of conversations. 10 years of up and downs, but God was faithful.

Never, ever, ever give up on someone. Anything is possible with God.
