Noah’s Ark


     Last Friday I went to Noah’s Ark with the youth group from First English.  It was a grand time.  I got to know the interns more and meet some new faces. 

     It flowed into a night of prayer.  Friday night/ Saterday morning was intense.  God really worked through some areas in my life concering relationships.  He taught me about His love and touched my heart.  Later He humbled me- and it was a good thing.  I love Him so much. 

     Three hours of sleep and then my first Aikido class for the summer.  I was worn and weary.  Afterwards I headed to Jeanie’s graduation party-it was good fun. Sunday morning worship and Godspell rehersal.

     Monday I went to Great America and some rockin fun and fellowship.  Tuesday I met with PB and later went out with my step-sister Allie and my goodfriend Joe. 

     Shall I write more?

Peace everyone!

Name: Spencer Wentland College: North Central University Year: Senior Major:Intercultural Studies My story of meeting Jesus in short: Not many weeks after I was born my parents baptized me into the Christian faith at First English Lutheran Church in my hometown, Appleton, WI. There they renewed their promises to renounce the devil and his ways, the world and evil and raise me the same way teaching me to love and fear the Lord, the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, the Creeds and when of reading age to put the Holy Bible in my hands and all the while, with the church community, instruct me in the Christian faith. My parents weren't perfect but they did fulfill the vows they made at my baptism. I had my own more personal experience with the Lord around the age of seven when I followed Jesus out of the Gospels to a "quiet, lonely place" in my backyard with the hope to do whatever Jesus did there. Without realizing it or ever being taught how to "receive Jesus into your heart" it happened quite like that even seeing a mental vision of Jesus and knowing I need to welcome him into my heart and let him sit on the throne of my life. I've never been the same since then and the Lord has kept his promise to be with me "always." I confirmed what my parents chose for me in a public confession of faith and the ritual of believer's baptism at a local swimming school where the Assemblies of God church my mom attends used to do their baptisms. I've never regretted a life with Jesus; life has always been richer, deeper and fuller because of it. About Me: Ha that's a funny question, and a popular one today. Well, if you really want to know "all about me" you will have to meet me. For starters I am hard to put in simple categories and often find myself tumbling between labels; i.e. introverted and extroverted, strong and weak, intuitive yet a rationalist, introspective and social, unique and individual yet needing people and empathetic. I belong to and am part of the Way and that is probably the most defining important part of my being. (Acts 24:14) As a God lover in the Way of Jesus Christ I long to see and embrace all things and people in his love for his glory. Creative people and places energize me. I enjoy and appreciate art and artists and like to contribute and collaborate in making my own art at times. I need my own time and spend a lot of time in contemplation- this is where I get recharged and new vision and vitality for life. A con of my personality is my ill attempts to understand everything about everything. At the same time I also get energy from others and love to be sociable. I make matrix like connections in my mind and although my comments often are perceived as random too me they are very connected to something. To me connection and harmony are very important and I believe the truth brings that out. The last few years have been filled with learning, studying and meeting wonderful people. Copenhagen, Escanaba, Nagasaki, and now back to Minneapolis! So excited to learn, grow and finish my last year at university! Call: I feel strongly called by the Lord to work and give myself as missionary of love to the Japanese people. As the Lord leads I hope to take a missionary assignment through ELCA Global Mission teaching English and serving in congregational mission and leadership in Japan. Eventually I would like to serve as an apostolic worker planting boiler rooms (missional/monastic communities) around the Japanese archipelago with a bunch of other Jesus lovers in international, incarnational bands of friends. About this blog: This blog is for my Church Administration and Personal Finance class. I'm looking forward to interesting and practical conversation and learning that will help develop my leadership and organizational skills for however and whatever takes shape out of the Lord's call.

  1. Hey!!
    God’s also been working in some areas of my life and my eyes are definatly starting to open to some things i wasn’t aware i even did.
    ohh and last week i went to Noahs Ark for the first time!! I was with a traveling Christian chior called Promise and that was one of our recreation stops…it was fun!
    Anyways i hope your doing great!!

  2. don’t worry i knw the greatest love and lately its the one thing that gets me through the day. i do pray for them all of them but the problem is that it seems none of them believe not even my parents. they have put the tempral before the eternal and have forgotten what is truelly important. the other day my mom asked me which was more important, going on a five day mission trip or gettting a job. i told i wouldn’t answer because i knew she wouldn’t like what i had to say, her response was that I needed to get my priorities in order becuase without a job i can’t afford anything. i try to pray for them every night but most nights i just don’t know what to say and i sadly have no hope for them. i feel bad saying that but its true, this whole family doesn’t believe, my sister thinks life simply ends with death and my brother is hanging around ppl who keep asking where God was when bad stuff happened to them. i fear for my family but i am lost as to what i can do for them. okay enough of loading my sorrows on u. Spencer ur awesome and im glad to have u as a friend, a good wholesome christian friend.kt mae
