Last week I was blessed with the opportunity to speak at two Kansas colleges. On Saturday, February 15, I traveled all the way to Neosho County Community College and spoke to about 75 middle and high school students who were a part of talent search. Talent search works to inspire kids to go to college and overcome the challenges life presents to them.
On Wednesday, February 12, I traveled to Hillsboro, Kansas, to speak at Tabor College’s spring FCA banquet. I was overwhelmed with the number of students who came up to me afterwards to say they were encouraged or inspired by my message. One young man came to me afterwards and shared the following. “I want to thank you for being here. I have been struggling with some life issues lately and you really helped me. Just last night I basically told God that I was through with him. You have reminded me that I need to trust in him.”
Before both of these speaking engagements, I was concerned with how my voice was going to hold up. I am just getting over a four-week stint of pneumonia and respiratory issues. But fortunately my voice was perfect and all went well. My next stop is Pittsburg State University’s Nurses Christian Fellowship meeting on Monday, February 24.
