Update on life – June 27, 2011

I dressed up for Mario at camp. It was a beautiful moment.

Hi, Jon here. I wanted to give you all an update about where my life is at right now. Things have been crazy leading up to the wedding and I’ve been absent at best in my posting.

I just got back from camp in Arkansas on Saturday night, hence my lack of posting for the past 9-10 days. It was an amazing time of ministry and spending time with about 200 middle school and high school students from all over the area. I’m very grateful that I was able to be a part of their lives again for the third summer in a row and I would love to be there next year as well.

Now I’m back in Denver and it’s crunch time before the wedding. Music to sort through, a sound system to figure out, and a whole variety of other details and loose ends to tie up. Kara and I could use your prayers as we get closer to our beautiful day so if we cross your minds at any points, feel free to put in a good word for us.

Another upcoming change in life is feeling that God has closed the door on my time at Denver Seminary. It was a great year of new experiences and getting back into the classroom but I believe that God has led me to pursue another direction for my Master’s.

Kara and I have talked and prayed about this quite a bit and we’re excited to see how God will lead us in this new direction. I’m going to be taking the fall semester off to get stabilized in married life, focus on my new bride (Yay!), and get settled in a bit. The plan is to begin classes towards pursuing an MBA with a Leadership emphasis online starting in January.

I am excited about a series of posts next week on our wedding week plans as I hope you will all be able to experience each day through my perspective. It should be a lot of fun; I’m really excited to share.

Thanks again for being a faithful group of readers. Your time and attention means a lot to me, even if I don’t always have the time to mention it to each of you but thank you, thank you, thank you.
