OMG! We ate at the same Crawfish place in Houston! The very best I've ever had.

Can someone help me get this prayer request to Matt:

Matt your music has inspired me and with God's grace thrown me into youth ministry. I love it. I direct a program for multiple parishes (1/7 his financially giving) that has The Edge, Life Teen, and a city-wide Newman Club. Besides the priest, I am the only worker on this job. I am the administrative director for Edge but not Youth Minister. I am the Youth Minister for the Life Teen, Newman CLub and I do all the music.
I just got married on July 25th. I am now working about 60 hours a week. Besides the help that I get from the 1 parish (out of 7) where I have my office, I have to raise money for my salary and budget. I am like a missionary. I am also working on my MA through Franciscan's distance learning.
I have been praying and working to find the money to hire someone else to help. The Edge youth minister is volunteer. He would be great full-time and then I could spend more time at home with my wife.
I know this is a weird prayer request but will you please pray that we find some financially assistance in order to hire a second person. Please pray for this. We are actually running low on budget money and I am having to consider a part-time job so I can have more money to use for the programs. I need a break, a chance to be ministered to and a chance to no longer worry. Please pray that more donors come forward. Please pray for my wife. I am 22, in my third year of youth ministry.
Please pray for me. I will be praying for you as well. The new song is great. The band is learning it now. One day the money will come and we will book you for a "show" here at the Church. We are trying to find someone to loan us money to bring you out for a fundraiser someday. We cant do it now of course but someday we will meet. Thanks for your prayers. God bless your musical missionary work.
