1st Full day in Chico

Today has been pretty busy, but I guess Sundays always are. I went to Second Service at Calvary Chapel Chico and Pastor Will taught because Pastor Sam was out of town. He taught on Ephesians 4 about how we are all one. It was a good message. I spent third service with Pastor Don narrowing a computer problem to iDVD and watching a video that he made of the High School Summer retreat. It looked like a lot of fun.

After church, they have the YES team which stands for Youth Excited to Serve. I think this is the best idea ever. Once a month, the youth of the church (6-11) get together to serve. There is a children's choir that practices and a drama team and junior ushers who pick up trash and clean the church and an art team that makes birthday cards for all the kids who have birthdays in the next month. I got briefed on VBS. They have assigned me to teach the 4-5 year olds the Bible Story. I am so blessed to be able to serve at VBS in such a huge way. I expected to be put on dishes or something, which is just as important, but I love teaching and I love kids so this is amazing. I came up with a list of things I needed this week and found most of them at church. I was sent to WalMart for the rest (and a couple other things) and then I worked a little and typed up my Resume. After VBS, I'll go get a PO Box and then I'll have an address to put on it. I can then print it up and start looking for jobs. I talked to someone about possible house sitting next week while they are on vacation and feeding their animals. I have a house sitting lined up for the week after that already. I'm looking at a room for rent tomorrow for $400 a month and have a couple other possibilities. Please pray for me. Job and place to live are the big things. I want to work to pay for my living, but I want the majority of my time to go to ministry, not work.

Then I went to the College Ministry called Worship Generation and we studied Acts 12, where Peter was busted out of Jail by the Angel. The speaker related it to God's plans for us and we don't even know. Peter thought it was a vision and not really happening. I can't wait to see what God wants to do in me. I've given up on trying to sneak wireless from another apartment and plugged into their hardline. I was offered another place to sleep and I might try that, since I'm not the only one sleeping on couches here. you have to sleep early to get the big one. I am not getting the big one tonight.

you have to let me know when you'll let the public read the stories you wrote in 30 days-- i really want to see what you came up with!

ps..that part about going to sleep early to get the big couch is so college. its funny how cut-throat we live sometimes
