Summer Juggling Tour

I write to you from Fort Wayne, Indiana. I am currently at First Missionary Church near the campus of Taylor University Fort Wayne (go Trojans!). I don’t have time to share all my fun experiences at camps and churches this past summer. But I will chronicle the locations in case you care where I was all summer. I’ll give one fun memory from each trip:

June:
Central Florida Nazarene Camp (Lake Placid, FL) – winning the beach limbo contest

Latonia Christian Church (Latonia, KY) – stealing an apple from Roger’s dinner snack

Vineyard Community Church (Lexington, KY) – juggling for my own church and local community

The RISE Program (Bergin, KY) – getting the coolest set of thank-you letters ever

Alive Christian Music Festival (Canal Fulton, OH) – juggling with singer Vicky Beeching

New Life Baptist Church (New Wilmington, PA) – the human table that miserably failed

Camp Hickory (Ingleside, IL) – showing off my toe-touch dive to the kids

July:
Wall Highway Baptist Church Camp (Trenton, GA) – playing Loot with the leaders late at night

Fellowship Community Church (Norwalk, IA) – taking a 40 mile bike ride

The International Juggling Festival (Winston-Salem, NC) – meeting my new friend Daniel and throwing the 5-foot yellow ball at each other at 1am in the gym

Prince Avenue Baptist Church Camp (Helen, GA) – taking my wife, Sarah, to a camp

Vineyard Community Church (Cincinnati, OH) – messing around with Thataway the Clown

August:
First Missionary Church (Fort Wayne, IN) – having a dropless program on the first night

I know all these reflections are simply fun things, but I want it to be known that I got to see God do some amazing things in the lives of children this summer, including many first-time commitments to be followers of Jesus and also prayers against fears and prayers for healing. It is so exciting to be a part of the ever-increasing work of the Kingdom of God. All praise to God on high. Grace and Peace, Jesse.

  1. But the fun things are part of the point. The relationships are where the love of and from Christ shows. It’s been fun having you in Fort Wayne.
