I’m still wandering through the #31DBBB project that OurChurch.com has running and today’s task is to effectively introduce you to one of my readers.
I can think of nobody better than a fellow blogger – Greg Simmons.
Greg has been a loyal reader and commenter at my site almost since it’s inception.
It may be that he’s also a fellow geek (though he’s a self-confessed one and I’ve been labelled one by friends & family) or that he works in the same industry as myself or any number of reasons.
Also, in a similar vein to me he has served his local church for over 20yrs and most of that in some technical capacity.
It may be that my affinity to Greg is to do with the fact that he’s a fan of coffee and getting away to unique locations rather than re-visiting the same old same old.
Greg is also one of my fellow writers at ChurchTechMatters.com.
Whatever the reasons, Greg has made valid and valuable comments to many of my posts that not only enhance the subject but take it in a direction I hadn’t previously considered.
However, right now I feel it is very appropriate to bring Greg to your attention as he is very shortly going to be heading off on a foreign mission. I’ve been on some of these (and hope to again) so I get some of what he’s feeling and going through.
Right now Greg and the rest of the team are in the less than 10 days to go zone and he even has a countdown on his site showing how long is left. They are off to Romania on June 10th and whilst most of their physical and practical needs are already taken care of they would still value your prayers and any donations you can make.
Here’s a little list:
- That their ‘individual testimonies’ are powerful tools
- That flights and journeys go smoothly and without problems.
- Funding – for individuals and the end aim of the mission trip.
- That all paperwork is in order.
- That God gets the glory.
And I’m sure if you ask Greg he’ll happily add any specific requests.
Greg’s personal website is an eclectic mix of everything from technical thoughts to spiritual challenges to ministry opportunities.
Please allow me to thoroughly recommend Greg and TheBetaVersion.org.
