Passing of the Baton.........

Tomorrow is my last night with our students. We've been through a lot together. They have been through more than they deserve. I do feel we have left a legacy for the next person to build upon. When I was a teacher/coach I was asked to coach the track team. We did pretty well and took a group to the state track meet. Our 4x4 relay team was one of beauty. Ken Irvin who played football in the NFL was our anchor. Frankie Fletcher who played college ball with Ken at the University of Memphis was also on this team. They were fast. But as fast as they were, it was the exchange of the baton that made a successful relay team. If they dropped the baton they lost. If they had a slow exchange they wouldn't finish first. The good teams found the right time to pass the baton and it would shave time off their run. Tomorrow I will pass the baton of "element2" to Brad (Soupie) Campbell, Angela , Neil , Whitney, JMO, Betti, Spots, Mike, Jason & Tammy and Greg. We have great teachers like Derek, Ray, Jessie, Devon, Dana, Scott and other helpers. I feel good about this because they have bought in to our vision. E2 stands for engage and entreat. We have built an awsome youth center "the attik" and have brought back some excitement to the student group that hasn't been there since Justin and Ken W. left. I'm sad to leave my friends and the students but I feel we are passing the baton at just the right place in the relay that the ministry will grow long after I am gone.
