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!
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!
Just wanted to give a quick update on where we are on our support raising for our ministry with FCA. Currently Erin and I are at almost 83% of our needed monthly support commitment. This means we need to raise about $1,400 more a month in committed support. Over this summer we have had many meetings with individuals, churches and organizations. Please keep praying with us that the seeds planted and the passion presented in these meetings will lead to partnerships. Reaching full support really would take a lot of worry off of us and allow us to fully focus on reaching coaches and athletes for Christ. Please pray with us that our support would come in. Pray about if there is anyone or any church that you might be able to tell about partnering with us and FCA. And lastly, if you are not already doing so please pray about if God would have you join our “Home Team” as a committed monthly financial partner. Feel free to contact Erin or I if you have any questions and also there is a link on the right side of this page that will take you to where you can set up online giving. Thank you so much for praying with us!
