The most fun yet!

I've been the lead pastor of a church for three whole months now and today was, by far, the most fun I've had yet. Let me go back to yesterday.

We received our year-end offering at church yesterday and it was a significant amount of money. Let me go back two weeks.

We were in full swing building up toward our year-end offering when God spoke to me and said that whatever comes in for the year-end, we ought to give it all away.

Back to today. It's 10:03pm and I just got home from the apartment of a couple I just met today. Because of the generosity and sacrifice of the people at Freedom Valley Church, this couple is able to pay their electric bill, car insurance, rent and give their kids the nicest Christmas they've ever had.

As I hugged this dude in the parking lot of Wal-Mart tonight, he said "I've never met anyone quite like you." I said back, "I think this is just something cool God did."

Truth is, God does cool stuff like this all the time. I'm floating tonight because He let me be part of it this time.

great stuff Jason. I really have always loved your heart to give. I still remember the story you told once about giving a family a washer and dryer with your families' Christmas money. I appreciate the example you have been to me J. thanks a lot for being a man of God.

Thanks Addison! Yeah, that dryer gift was fun too! I sure hope I man up and do more of that stuff in the future. I miss you dude. How are you lately?
