    The conclusion of the 2022 General Assembly has transition to the lull of election season whereby things slow down at the capitol in place of campaigning. This requires adjustment to the ministry as well as anticipation of the return of committees and the general election.

    First, the Bible studies continue each week. By the end of June, we should conclude our chapter-by-chapter journey through the Gospel of John. I am grateful for each staff member that has attended as their schedule allowed.

    Most significant in the month of May was the launch of our six-month plan to engage with all 400+ staff members at both the Annex and Capitol. I was able to serve the fourth-floor employees where we passed out tracks, bible studies, and information regarding the ministry. Please pray such ongoing efforts produce the fruit of faith. In mid-June, we will provide lunch for employees on the third floor as well as custodians and security.

    Each month I hope to offer lunch for another floor and am still in need of a few churches or organizations interested in helping serve the staff. If you would like to partner with me in this effort, please let me know. You can also serve the weekly staff Bible study.

    In addition to these efforts at the capitol, I am working on engaging with elected officials outside of Frankfort. Though a slow process, I have visited with a few constitutional officers privately and have attended several events where elected officials (both local and state) are present.

    Ultimately, I covet your prayers in this ongoing ministry. The work is great, but the gospel is greater still. Please pray for the upcoming general election. Every candidate is an image bearer whom God loves. Let the Lord’s will be done in November but let love for our neighbor support and encourage one another.
