March 28, 1994 – Monday – 7:45 p.m.

It rained all day, but it was a great day nonetheless.

I’m listening to Petra right now!

There are 44 days of school left.  That’s not a lot at all.  April is almost here.  The Lord is preparing me for college.  I’ve been here too long.  I’ve grown too comfortable.  

Church is changing.  I’m not sure if I told you that or not.  It all starts April 10th.  Church will start at 10:30 a.m. on Sundays and there will be no more Sunday School.  Children’s Church is now called Faith Street and it starts at 10:30 a.m. as well.  I think I’ll help with Faith Street every other Sunday, doing puppets and skits and stuff.

Youth Group will start at 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and it will be more of a fellowship gathering and less preaching.  All of this is supposed to help the church grow.  I like it.

It’s funny how the church is growing and changing right when I’m getting ready to leave.  I told my mom that last night.  Her reply shocked me.  She said, “Well Jacob, you had to be there to keep certain things together during the bad times.”

It made me think.

What would this church be like if I hadn’t been going there for the past six years?  Did I affect it that much?

I’ll probably never know.  And I don’t need to know.  The Lord will take care of me.  I came to this church right after the church got a youth pastor after not having one for a year.  I’ve been here from the beginning.  So had Christi’s family, but they are gone now.

I’m going to bed early tonight.  I have two tests tomorrow, but I’ll study for them tomorrow.  Right now I’m going to sleep in the wonderful peace of Jesus.
