Our Firstborn's Birthday

Today marks the 23rd anniversary of the birth of our firstborn son, Mike. Since Mike doesn't like attention regarding these kind of things, he probably won't like me posting this, so I'll keep it brief. We are very proud of our son, and the young man of God that he's growing into. Mike has sensed the Lord's call on his life to pursue pastoral ministry, and is currently entering his senior year as a Bible Exposition major at The Master's College. He's back at home with us in Columbus for the summer as he interns at Highland Park EFC. This fall will see Mike spending a semester at IBEX in Israel before returning to finish his last semester at TMC and graduation. And he's looking at pursuing an MDiv at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School after that.

I've been so blessed to see the way that God's been shaping Mike these past few years, and the zeal that Mike has for the Word and sound doctrine and communicating it to God's people. I can only imagine how He will use Mike in the future, regardless of what path he goes down. Happy birthday Mike!
