Lasting Impressions

Loren Hague at King of PeaceThe past month has flown by. I feel like I just arrived in Kingsland and it is already time for me to head back north to begin at Virginia Theological Seminary. A lot of things have made a lasting impression on me this month: preaching multiple times, walking through the preschool and laughing with all of the kids, learning how to wire a cordless microphone for the pulpit.

I have learned so much about working in a mission church in the short time I have been here and I will always cherish those lessons. However, what I will always carry with me from this summer is not the knowledge I gained or the new experiences I’ve had…what will stay ingrained upon me is the spirit of God’s love and grace that is so abundant here. This is a wonderful community and it has been a blessing to see the work that God is doing in and through King of Peace. As I go off to seminary I will keep you all in my thoughts in prayers. Thank you so much for welcoming me and for helping me prepare for VTS. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for King of Peace in the future!

God bless,

Loren

    A lasting impression indeed! I hope you gained as much being here as we did. I have a feeling our paths will cross again and I look forward to watching you become a new shepard of another flock. See you around. Take Care
