MIP Beginning Thoughts

29 Aug

George and I had our first MIP (Ministerial Internship Program) event… or orientation, this weekend. MIP for those that do not know, is the second step in the liscensing procedure with our denomination. It is a nine-month course with daily lessons and monthly seminars and tests that better equips you to be a pastor. It is a process that both George and I have to participate in, pass and graduate from in May.

I am going into this new step with lots of great hopes. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it will be rough at times. But I also know that George and I will be better leaders and people after this… equipped to do what God has called us to do. George is an amazing man before going into this so I only know that it will strengthen him and prepare him for the journey that lies ahead.

I am blessed to have such an unbelievable husband and for him to want to take the steps forward in what God has in store for us makes me adore him even more. I know that we will grow stronger because of what the next nine months holds in store for us and that what we go through each day will develop our ministry and make us a better couple to go and reach the lost.

I am both excited and optimistic for what God has in our future and I know that as long as we stay in His word and in prayer we can do anything and everything that He requires of us!!  

He never said it would be easy… but he also never puts more on us than we can bear….

    Thanks Chanelle, I want to begin a journal and you have given me encouragement to maybe open my thoughts for others instead of hiding them away for only my eyes.
    We look forward to going through this journey as well, and remember we’re here for you guys as we’re a team.
    Love you guys!
