Krokos family at Austin's sister and brother in laws on Easter
I enjoy getting a peek behind the screen of people I feel like I know though I only know online. So I thought I would show you a few pictures and give an update of what's going on Kroki style (that's what a lot of people call us as a family... plural for Krokos)
This semester (oh I guess I need to explain that doing college ministry since 2002 we think in terms of semesters. Just one of the many things that makes us a bit on the outside of our own age group) has been a big transition for us. Austin and I have directed the ministry here in Denver for something like 5 or 6 years but after some super awesome staff (who happens to be my best friend) came to replace our roles, we took on roles to minister to the staff more and help their development and the ministry as a whole. The Lord has been causing a lot of growth and these new roles are birthed out of that. And as you know, when there's fast growth and change... well, there is growing pains. It hasn't been anything close to terrible, just a lot of adjusting and then readjusting-mostly Austin and I and our family.
Here's the staff committed to reaching the 40,000 students on the Auraria campus in Denver.
There's 26 staff (and 19 staff kids) total for Master Plan.
I'm 30 weeks pregnant with a little girl who is still nameless. And let me just tell you that it is driving me crazy to not have a name yet. This will be number 5. 5! Still getting use to that... The boys attend this super incredible Christian Classical school that just started a couple years ago. I seriously can't believe they get to go there, I just get amazed at God and how He got us there whenever I think about it.
Well, I guess I need some more belly shots. This was all I could find.
And really it's a LOT bigger than what seems to be here.
Oh my goodness this guy melts my heart!
Uriah at school.
And pretty soon this summer Austin and I are directing a summer project called Crush Fear for students so we have been working on that like mad. Austin and his good friend were driving around Denver one night years ago and birthed the idea of having a Great Commission training project in the context of the outdoors. Now, 6 years since Austin started the first one we get to see God continue to use it to train students to live on mission for His glory. The whole family is going and I have set up a VBS for our kiddos for a few hours a day while I am helping lead the project.
Stuff like this happens at Crush Fear
Welp, there's a little peek behind the screen into the wild and crazy Krokos home. Have a great week friends!
We exist to glorify God, to display His heart and character. And I just love how we are all uniquely built to do that. So every Friday I want to give you, uniquely designed by God, an opportunity to link up your thoughts on God, art, baking, photography, parenting, marriage, homeschooling, writing or blogging and more if they tie into or display the Lord somehow.
So go ahead and link up below by clicking the link below and following the prompts. Please just let your readers know by including a link at the bottom of your
