It's Déjà Vu All Over Again
Big changes are coming, again. This time next month, things will be a lot different for me. I expect life to be simultaneously much simpler, and much more difficult. (It's amazing how often that seems to be the way things work.) Before I get into that, here's a bit of history.
I've been performing magic most of my life. I got started in elementary school. By middle school, I was using magic as a tool for ministry. I kept performing throughout my high school and college years. Even after I got a "real job" in the computer industry, I kept performing, until I eventually went full time into magic. I got to travel across the country and around the world, working with amazing people from many denominations, cultures, ethnicities, and socioeconomic groups.
The downturn in the economy hit my ministry pretty hard, so I eventually started working with a major apologetics ministry doing computer-related work, while continuing to do magic on the side. I had planned on going back into magic full time last year, but I ended up agreeing to work with the apologetics ministry another year. In retrospect, that wasn't a good plan, as my performance schedule had ramped up to the point that I didn't have enough time for a second job. I'd tell you more, but I was too sleep-deprived to form long term memories. (I wish I were kidding about that, but my memories of much of last year really are a jumbled mess.)
Anyway, that brings us to now. I really am going back into magic full time in just under a month. As I wan't able to properly keep up with the business end of my ministry last year, my schedule for this year isn't as full as I would like at this point, but it will be OK. I'm looking forward to being able to pick up some of the things I've had to let go these past few years. I also have ideas for new ministry and magic that I'll finally be able to pursue.
Your prayers are appreciated during this time of transition. And, of course, if you have any possible opportunities for us to partner together, let us know.
