Have you hugged a kid with autism today?

I have! Here's my son, Matthew. God gave us Matthew to make me a better Dad. This little guy sure makes life exciting! Psalm 127:3 says: "Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward". Challenges, yes. Rewards? WOW!!! FAQ re autism.

Heres my little baseball star chillin with little bro! Winter baseball is in full swing. This guy just loves baseball! I'm good with that. You know, raising kids is probably one of the hardest things I'll ever do, but at the end of the night, when it's all said and done, and I'm tucking these little guys into bed, the joy they give me and the love they give out makes it all worth it.

Prison Ministry Update

Long story short...God is really doing a work at CRC in Norco. He's doing a work in my life and with our team. It's been awesome and I'm truly blessed to be involved in this ministry. I've said before, if it were not for this ministry, I really don't know what kind of state I would be in spiritually. I was in a dry, dry, dry place for a long time when the Lord picked me out of a crowd of men who are way more qualified to lead this ministry than I am. It's been awesome.

We started out with about 15 guys showing up to our Bible study. In less than two months, we have over 60 guys showing up and it grows by 10-15 per week. Last week, 10 inmates joined the family of God! The worship has been phenominal! I mean, if we get up to 100 guys showing up, I'm pretty sure the roof is coming down! (It's decent and in order...we're just loving on God while we sing our hearts out).

Pray for these guys, pray for the team and pray that God's spirit would continue to draw more lost souls to Himself on Thursday nights at CRC Norco. Godspeed.
