I was in town more this past month than in previous months and it was a great opportunity to attend baseball games and soccer games as I have several grandchildren competing. I also was able to attend several honors day programs in which my grandchildren were involved.
While I had a lot of opportunities for preaching and teaching, this past month afforded several opportunities for pastoral ministry functions. Some of these were very challenging, but I feel it helped me stay grounded in the real world of ministry.
Thank you for your prayers and your financial support.
For the Cause of causes,
John Ed Mathison
