A Quick Update from Costa Rica

Hey Guys, the past few months have been crazy!  Here is a super quick up date of my crazy life these past few months! I came to Costa Rica to dive into the Supernatural and Jesus has really been teaching me His heart about these matters. I've been studying the prophetic, healing ministry, words of knowledge, and more. I've seen and been apart of some incredible miracles. 

I had the opportunity to go back and help out Lisa on her maternity leave back at my home church in Michigan and my goodness if that is not the most perfect baby in the world then I don't know who is. It was a great time of learning leadership in different areas and I got a good feel for what it would be like to be a kids pastor. I got to see my kids which was great, I missed them a ton and I got to see a lot of friends including my best friend in the world, Preston, who happened to get engaged while I was in town and I’m so glad I got to be a part of that moment, congratulations man!

I've been back in Costa Rica the past couple of weeks and it has been amazing, I feel like I’m back in it with a clear mind and Jesus is moving me up from just learning His heart on these matters and really stepping into it.

These past couple of weeks I've been focused on catching up on reading I’ve gotten a little behind in, so I’ve been pretty busy with that and redesigning my dad's website and creating graphics for a retreat coming up we're hosting here in Costa Rica. In between all that mess, we’ve gone out to minister and to feed the homeless and some children.  We've gone out to do street ministry a couple of times, and I met a guy that I'm trying to create a relationship with right now.  I asked him to meet for coffee, which he agreed to, but... he didn't show up. I'm praying for him, and he lives in town so I'm sure I'll see him again. I'm pretty excited about this relationship because the language barrier has been pretty brutal which has made ministry a little harder because I’m a talker. In Michigan, I would invite people out for coffee all the time and it was a huge part of my ministry and a great way to love on people, so I’m really thankful I’m being able to start doing this here in Costa Rica.

We're stepping into prayer and fasting this week.  The last couple of weeks we've really been diving deep into these topics, which has been amazing. We've studied contemplative prayer, enjoyable prayer, and fasting. I'm currently reading prayer and fasting by Mahesh Chavda. A beautiful book, I definitely recommend it! I spent the first three chapters with non-stop tears coming out of my eyeholes. I'm really excited to step into this next week of prayer and fasting, I think it's going to cause a lot of breakthrough in my life and I’m excited for what Jesus is going to do.

So there you go, that was a quick up to date of life over the past few months and I will be posting more updates as time goes on with a little more detail!
