cookies and the CLUB
Okay, so as soon as Snider got out of school, I picked up my buddy Austin. We went back to my parents house and started making COOKIES! Yes, we made massive amounts of chocolate chip cookies.We had a lot of fun. I mean, seriously I didn't even plan on having that much fun, but it just happened naturally. Once we had almost completed the cookie dough mix, Skyler (Austin's friend) showed up. He sort of got lost on his way over. But, he arrived and all was well. Yes, many many cookies. Our plan was to take them to the football game, and pass them out. And that is exactly what we did. The kids loved them. AND, I got to meet another hand full of new kids. It is good to familiarize my face with something consistent at Snider. It is really good stuff.
The night ended with me feeling again, that I was supposed to go to the biggest CLUB in Fort Wayne, and read the word of God. So, I went there. And I got really scared. I sat in my car and prayed and tried to figure out what I was doing. Finally, I said, "I know you want me here God, help me." I started walking around the club, praying and asking what I was to do. Finally, my friend Matt showed up, and sort of took me under his wing. It was amazing, and I realized then that I was not supposed to stand there and read the word to people. Rather, I was to be there for them and talk with them. I would start out the conversation for example saying, "excuse me, can I ask you a question?" "If you died tonight, do you know where your salvation lies?" It was amazing what it lead to. Really amazing. People need something. And darn it, they will find it.
