This past Sunday, the fabulous four, soon to be five, Luces pulled into Philly. Kevin is a pastor at Seven Mile Road Boston (now one of four men leading the church). God brought Kevin into the mix six months before I was getting ready to move down to Philly. God’s timing was perfect. While the church was growing in the areas of prayer and preaching, we had much maturing to do in terms of community and discipleship. These are particularly the areas that God has gifted Kevin in and given him a passion for. I got to work with Kevin in developing the SoulCare groups that launched in Boston, and am now working on getting started down here.
It was a huge joy to have Kevin, Bridget, and the kids with us for a few days. They made it in time to be with us for our preview service. In fact, Kevin shared with us about what was happening in Boston. Man, do they have their plates full – but in a good, healthy, fun way.
We spent our days hanging out in the city, running with the kids at the park, and staying up talking once the kids went down. It was sweet to be with our friends again – trying to convince them to make this an annual thing!
