A Busy Weekend!
This picture was supposed to be taken at my graduation last Friday. . . .

But my family's schedule had to change. Everyone needed for my wife's scheduled c-section was only available on Friday morning. With the seminary's graduation at 10 am, there was simply no way for me to participate. I officially received my degree "in absentia" (in absence).

Nevertheless, on May 18th 2007 my newest daughter was born. I know that I am biased, but she is a beautiful baby girl! The Lord has blessed my wife and daughter with quick recoveries, and they were both released from the hospital yesterday. Our family thanks God for his abundant blessings and looks forward to what he has in store for us in the coming months and years! Stay tuned to read more about our future!

Congratulations on both accounts! And, Please answer Tony, he's getting impatient.

Congrats John! What was your degree in? Is there a chance of us getting to see some pictures of your daughter?

Big congratulations on both fronts. We're anticipating our first (a daughter) in the first week of August.

Congratulations John! God bless your newest addition and your ministry now that you have that sheepskin!

Thank you everybody for your kind words! I didn't see these comments until today; I can't believe that the seminary has already disabled my student account! In any case, I have some revisions to make on my blog after Memorial Day.

Tony, you can move my blog feed to alumni at Said @ Southern (a great site BTW). You'll hear more about my future ministry plans soon!

Keith, I received my Master of Divinity Degree from the Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism and Church Growth at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. My degree track was in applied apologetics.

As far as a picture of my daughter goes, the hospital site has not posted it yet (weird!), but I'll try to get something up next week when I'll have a little more time on my hands!
