I traveled to Southern this last weekend to interview staff for the mission trips. Joe Reeves helped me connect with several friends and students.

I am pleased to announce that Katie Hickman and Amir Davis will be joining the program as deans/outreach leaders. Had great interviews with them, and the mission trips are a great fit for them, as they are good fits as staff. I’m looking forward to finding out who our last two deans will be!

God also set up a divine appointment for me. I pulled up to Red Robin with Joe and Doug Houghton. The Mount Vernon Academy bus was in the parking lot outside the mall. Doug encouraged me to go see if I could talk to anyone. I was able to introduce myself, make some small talk, and then meet the principle, who is interested in hearing more about the mission trips! I’ve wanted to recruit there, and I hope this opens the door. I’ll let you know how it goes.
