Wow! The end of the school year has arrived for the Meritt family. It has gone so quickly. We are all looking forward to the slower pace of summer. Everyone has various responsibilities that they have to fulfill – ministry projects, learning to drive, summer school, etc. We are also adding another teenager to our house this weekend when Julie turns thirteen. When school starts in the fall we will have a senior, a sophomore, an eighth grader, and a fourth grader. We are treasuring the time we have left with everyone at home. Remember our address has changed – our new mailing address is P.O. Box 783848, Winter Garden, FL 34778.
Ministry Update ￼
A couple months ago we mentioned a new bible study series that Dave’s department is producing based on a pledge that Cru is rolling out. The studies focus on the life of Abraham. It is good for all of us to consider whether we are living a surrendered life. Here is the pledge for you to consider and meditate on.
TAKE THE PLEDGE.
Lord Jesus, I surrender to you and in the power of your Spirit, I will…
Go where you want me to go
Do what you want me to do
Say what you want me to say
Give what you want me to give
We trust that many lives will be changed as students study what the Word of God has to say about surrender.
Now that the move is done, Lynn has more time to devote to ministry. One of her responsibilities this summer will involve helping plan the Cru High School ministry days that will take place during Cru’s National Conference in Colorado later this summer. Lynn is also going to be active in fine-tuning the training that we offer to Cru High School staff, interns, and volunteers. Please pray that she maintains good balance as she is involved in these responsibilities.
Thanks for making a difference in the lives of students. ￼
