This has been a great year so far!  At the end of the month, I want to take a moment to thank some people. Lots of people have contributed to my year and I want to thank you publicly! While there are probably a few more people who should be on this list, these are an incredible bunch of people who have taken time from their lives to add value to my life! You are an awesome bunch!

Casper! You are the most awesome wife a man could ever dream of having!

Deone Higgs! You have been the most inspiring online friend I have ever had. Can’t wait to make your acquaintance in person!

Joseph Ransom! You have been a great friend now for a couple decades. Thanks for always being there through thick and thin. You never cease to amaze me as you prove to the world that a blind man can be just as capable as any other man. (Seems like I plagiarized that line.)

All of my North Greenville University Family! There are way to many names to list all of you, but I work with the best faculty, staff, administration and student body that a Spanish professor could ever hope for!

Marvin Washington and Rachel Thompson! I list them together because they have become a couple. You both have been great encouragers! Thanks for helping me get the word out about this blog, my book, etc. I really appreciate you guys!

Will Frist! Thanks for putting your awesome leadership skills to work at the Greenville Campus of NewSpring Church! Each series I am impressed by the staging, lights etc! You do an incredible job every week! Thanks man! You are awesome!

Matt Sain! In addition to having an awesome wife who is one of my former students, Matt has become the sound manager for my church at the Greenville Campus of NewSpring Church. Matt, you do an incredible job! I know it is never easy being the “sound guy”! I have heard often in ministry that the easiest way to split a church is to mess with the music. You mess with it every week and do an awesome job of it! Keep up the incredible work!

Jim Cassell! You have become a great friend over the last few years! I love getting to pick your brains over lunch and thanks for all the encouragement! Oh, and readers, if you need a great massage! Check this guy out if you live in the upstate of South Carolina!!

    Burl, you are one of the greatest inspirations in my life. Anything that I may have accomplished for the Lord is due, in large part, to your influence. I really want to be just like you when I grow up.

    Burl thanks for the kind words. That means so much to me! It’s been a pleasure getting to work with you more at church and become closer.
