  1. Hello Chris…we met at the WAYnet event in Wilson. I came up to you at the end of the service and spoke to you….Well I wanted to say thank you for coming to Wilson, especially on your birthday, and that what you said that night has really stayed with me. As a matter of fact we are finishing up with a Sex and Dating program in our Youth Group right now…It is really awesome to me how God is just working with a lot of young people in that area right now. Well, I am not going to keep you any longer I just wanted to say thank you and I really hope that God Blesses you and your family in a mighty way

  2. Hey! I was challenged by your newest entry on my words. What power they have and everytime I open my mouth, does grace and love pour forth? Absolutely not, but you remind me that God desires that from me.

    I have some praying to do about this matter and thank you for the reminder.

  3. Hey Shelton. Are you ever going to post new material on this site? Just wondering! Thanks for the blessing you have been in my life!
