Hey Everyone, Erin and I are excited to share with you a new journey we are on with FCA. As you know I (Andy) have been an FCA Area Representative for the past two years with the Central Kentucky Fellowship of Christian Athletes. During that time we have been serving at EKU and covered Madison County, Estill, Powell, Clark, Montgomery, Garrard, and my home county Lee County. We have also been to several other counties to help get FCA huddles launched. Now, I am beginning the process of becoming an Area Director for this area which is exciting because it means things like getting together an area advisory board to help support the ministry here prayerfully, financially, and hands on. Also, we hope to begin recruiting new staff to come help us to not only reach more school, coaches, and athletes for Christ, but also to be able to go deeper with those we are already serving.
It’s a very exciting time for the ministry with FCA here in our area and we want to share more about it with you. On October 17th we are holding our First Ever FCA Power Lunch at First Southern National Bank here in Richmond, KY. Not only will we have some great food from Chick-Fil-A but we are going to be sharing about what God is doing in the FCA ministry here in Madison and surrounding counties. If you are interested in finding out more about how you can partner with FCA and our family please contact us today about attending our first ever Power Lunch! We would love to have you join us! As always, thank you so much for your continued prayers and support!
Last week we asked you to be praying for Maeven and Judah as they went back to school this week. Well, yesterday was their first day of classes and both survived! Judah was quiet and nervous as he went to his first day, but did great. Of course his two favorite things were lunch and recess. Maeven started her homeschool classes and did excellent. It’s big adjustment for her as a social butterfly to be home just with Mom, but so far so good. She is really excited for next week when she goes to her homeschool co-op and is able to hang out with other kids. Thank you so much for your prayers and please keep praying with us that our kids have an excellent school year, do great with their studies, make lots of friends, and also that they will grow in their relationships with and be bold for Christ!

This weekend as you are praying for the week ahead, please remember to be praying for our kids as they will be starting another school year. Judah is off to Kindergarten and will be experiencing all those firsts of heading to school. We are so thankful that he was able to be put into an inclusive classroom that has less students and teachers and aids that are trained to work with autism.
Also, please be praying for Maeven as she will be heading into her first year of homeschooling. (Pray for Erin too!) This is going to be a big difference for her as 2nd grade will be at home and also in a local homeschool co-op. We really feel God has led us to do this for at least this year and that hopefully she will do even better academically, her body will continue to heal from Celiac disease and cross contamination in public school, and most importantly that it will strengthen her walk with Christ.
Thank you so much for the way you love and pray for our family!
We had a great 2018 FCA Leadership Camp at Campbellsville University. Thank you so much for praying for us and the over 700 campers, staff, and volunteers. We are so thankful to see all the lives that were changed for Christ this past week. Please watch the video below to get a small glimpse of how awesome Leadership Camp was!
Its getting warm here in Kentucky and I am on the road a lot on the these sunny late spring/summer days. Currently I am traveling to 8 counties visiting high and middle schools recruiting students to join us at FCA Leadership Camp this summer. Beginning in June I will be driving all over Kentucky helping with Basketball camps, a wrestling camp, Leadership Camp, FCA trainings and much more. This is where our need/prayer request comes in. Last fall the A/C in my little car died. With the Winter months coming on I knew I wouldn’t need air and so I put off getting it fixed. Now things are getting quite toasty and I definitely need some cool air or I turn into a sweaty puddle. I found out today that I have to have a hose replaced on my car and to get the a/c hose replaced, labor, and any coolant replaced it will take almost $300. I have scheduled an appointment for this Friday at 1pm to get the work done and am praying and trusting that financially I will be able to do so. Please pray with me that I can get this issue fixed on Friday with just one trip to the mechanic and no more problems. Pray for God’s provision of the finances to take care of the issue. And lastly, please just pray that my little car will keep running for a long time and be a great tool for me to use to share the love of Christ on campuses all over KY!
