It’s been a great week at home! I spent a lot of time in the city doing “Minneapolis things,” like going to the zoo, exploring coffee shops, and just spending time with friends and family here.
I had a lot of adventures, but it’s time to pack up my bags (again) and head back out to the tiny little town that has captured my heart.
I’ve told a lot of people in person, but for those of you who haven’t heard, I will be working with Dordt’s traveling praise team, The New City, by playing keys and singing. We are going to all different kinds of summer camps and service projects both at Dordt and other places in the midwest.
I’m so excited for all of the adventures I’m going to have this summer! I’ve been waiting for many, many months for this job and it’s FINALLY here! I can’t wait to meet so many new people this summer. I also can’t wait to get to know the people on my team even better!
I’ve loaded my last box into my Buick and it’s time to head out! Don’t worry, Minnesota. I’ll be back before you know it!
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
