It was difficult to go through the rest of the day at work, well mostly because when you are around little kids, being happy is pretty necessary. I just try to include it as much as possible anyway. It was hard because I was so deeply in thought and hurting for the family.
Then I went to Young Life. I picked up Ray. I had been bringing Ray last year to Young Life, and he really loves it. It is such a sweet thing. Ray lives on the South side of town, and well I am just so happy I can reach out to him, and that he feels comfortable enough to call me and ask for a ride. This is when I picked him up from his house. Josh (YL area director) gave the talk tonight. It was a pretty good look into what sin is. It was based on the idea that sin is not something that is the physical outside materialization of the sin act, but is actually a much deeper all encompassing life style. He talked about how Jesus Christ did not come to make people stop doing the bad things in life, but he came to change their hearts which lead to the change in outsidey happenings. It was a really good talk, and in my brief talk with a few kids, it sounded like it went over really well.
P.S. I do have an update on Tom, I just have to let some time pass before I mention it. If you've been following the situation, please know there are positive things happening. Please pray that they continue and that God changes heart(s).
