Metro East Ministries,

I pray this finds you close to God & doing well. I just returned from a Leadership/ Momentum Conference hosted in Livermore, CA by Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. It was exhausting driving up & back, but I am really fired up I got the chance to attend. I was ministered to & discipled on a variety of levels. It was really encouraging being there with 5 brothers from Orange County Region (Marshall, Dan, John, Mauricio & Mike) as well as a brother from Turning Point (Dave Etterbeeck). We had incredible fellowship, deep discussions, great discipling of our hearts & eye opening discussions with the Leadership Group that hosted the Conference. I am buzzing with ideas, thoughts, visions & ways to improve our ministry in the area of Stewardship – I'm not just talking in area of giving financially.

I mean in area of serving, being a great steward of what God has entrusted us with, leadership/ structure in our church as well as involvement in our communities. Tonight at midweek I will take time to share what I learned/ am learning. The future looks bright for Metro East Ministries & I am so grateful we are on this journey together. Mae & I need your support & help while we go on this journey together. I can't believe that it's already been 6 years since our family first moved here to Los Angeles from Las Vegas, NV. There is always a "Better way" to do anything.

Please take time to go over the lesson I preached this past Sunday – Awareness is Health (notes are posted on our web site as well as the recording). I believe it's important for us to take inventory of our lives & continue to allow God's Holy Spirit to work through us. Wherever you are at in your physical health or mental health…… let us continue to use God's Word in our lives to guide us on our journey. Take time to look at your whole self so you can live life to the full that God desires for each of us. Part of living life to the full is being aware of our physical & mental health. Let us begin to be aware by setting up time with your physician and take advantage of our health options with our insurance.

This Sunday I look to preach out of 2 Corinthians 1:3-11; The God of all comfort
