greater things are yet to come...

So, remember Devin, we kindly refer to him as Big Devin. He is one of the kids that my friend Cara brings in from a low income housing project in Round Rock. Anyway, before you read this post, you should read the previous post on him that I wrote.

Well this Sunday, before the 9:30 service I was up running the check-in table. Devin came by to see me. He had just got back from our church's youth retreat (Big Dev is in 6th grade now). I asked him how it went and he said it was good and he had fun. I could tell he wanted to tell me something but couldn't get it out. I kept asking about the retreat and finally he blurted out, "I accepted Christ this weekend." I was FREAKING out inside! I hugged him, probably multiple times, I can't remember. I asked him what spurred this on. He said he was tired of messing up and doing bad things and he realized he needed Christ. He then said he had to go to TeenRock, so he left. I was totally tearing up. I am so excited! God is doing great things and only greater things are yet to come!

That is great! And what an honor that he wanted to tell you. I know God has you in Austin for a reason! How exciting that Devin is now a believer!
