The 410Bridge . News [cached]
"Hey Jack Update" by James Ward, Dir. of U.S. Operations 09/02/09
It is the story of a man named Jack.
Through a series of remarkable events, Jack was introduced to The 410 Bridge, brought to the U.S., and fitted for prosthetic arms. He went from being a person with no hope to someone with dreams and passions for the future. His main desire was to go back to school, get his secondary education, and then go on to Bible School to become a pastor. And now, thanks to God and many of you, he is pursuing that dream.
I recently had the opportunity to sit down and visit with Jack, and learned how God continues to use him, and all of you who are part of his story, to make a huge impact for the Kingdom. Over the course of the last several months, he has moved into a Nairobi apartment with his brother (whom he is discipling), and is on a fast-track program that will allow him to finish secondary school in less than two years.
He is studying hard and able to carry his books, turn pages, and even take copious notes with the use of his arms-to top it all off, he's even making good grades. It was amazing to see his school workbooks and the great penmanship he has been able to achieve with his prosthetics. Though he has lost his own hands, he's found hope in the Hands of our Father.
It's stories like Jack's why The 410 Bridge was created. If you would like to be a part of Jack's story, we are currently seeking people to help him further his education to become a pastor.
Then, last year, our Bible study group did John Ortberg's If You Want To Walk On Water, You Got to Get Out of the Boat and I knew that's exactly what I had to do: GET OUT OF THE BOAT!
I had heard about Jack; heard his story and worn the "Hey Jack Radio" shirt. But, I hadn't seen Jack's face. His shy smile and his powerful story took on new meaning when you actually see the epic struggle that God has brought him through. At the end of his question/answer time with Lanny, Jack made a whispered request to Lanny.

I heard that last Sunday, Pastor Jack did a wonderful job of setting up this series up as we talk about our belief in God - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
talking about this theme with a DVD study by Pastor John Ortberg.
This series features well-known Christian teachers, Dallas Willard, Richard Foster and John Ortberg.
John and Amy led us in singing great Gospel songs and we even added so much "gospel" to the music that it dehydrated John and he needed to get a shot of water into his system. He says his next special music piece might be "Wade in the Water."
The 3:16 coming from the gospel of John with the well known words, "For God so loved the world ...." All month long we will return again and again to these foundational words of grace and faith.
John 3:16 is the GPS of the Soul. We discover who we are and where we are going to only in the grace and love of God who was willing to give up His only Son so we might have new life.
Our personal spiritual GPS is John 3:26 and our corporate church GPS is also John 3:16. We exist as a faith community to love God and love people exactly as John 3:16 demonstrates to us.
