I should be studying and writing a speech but I just want to write about how much I love Four Oaks Church. I thought it was about as good as it gets last semester when I went to church with John, Stephie, Erin and Steph. I may have lost John from that one day when he came to church and I fervently pray for God to touch his heart but that is not my decision. I didn’t realize how easily satisfied I was at first in my very small church family. Today I was at church for about 6 hours and was able to talk to my huge, amazing, loving family. I gained David, my other best friend, Danny, a new best friend, and so many more. I find myself every week going home wishing I could have talked with my family longer. I wish church was everyday, luckily I get to see a few of them on Tuesday nights and even more on Thursday nights and my close family, my fellowship group, on Sunday nights. I am so excited to go on Men’s retreat this Friday! Not only to learn but because the men of our church are all so amazing, also Danny is going which is really cool. Today I got to work with the 2 year olds which was so much fun, I think I would be better with a little bit older group of kids but if this is where I am needed I will continue to play with those little guys.
I know this is a church of love, when I talk to students about what they want to do after school many say they want to stay in Tallahassee because of Four Oaks. I am in the same boat, unless God calls me somewhere else I will probably stay in Tally because there is something different about this church. I am thankful God reminded me how important church is. It is Christ’s beloved bride, that definitely means something.
Since David is one of my only 2 followers I want to tell you how happy I am to have you there with me buddy.
