“As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God.” – Psalm 42:1
James embodies these verses. He actually makes verbal sighs in the study when he is touched by the truth in Gods word. These are his words regarding our Wednesday morning bible study which he faithfully attends every week.
James is a graduate who lives at the mission and was recently hired on as staff in our volunteer department.
"What a joy it is every Wednesday from 7:45 – 9:00 am to read and study God’s Words in a group setting with a great leader in Pastor Dan.
I start getting excited Tuesday night, just knowing the next morning I’ll be having a feeling of wonder. Most days I leave smiling and shaking my head. It always amazes me how much knowledge can be in just two sentences of the Word.
I am so eager to study and learn what God’s will is for me. I’m sure every member of the group feels the same. Thank you LORD! Thank you URM. Thank you Pastor Dan."
