Some things about our Summer Vicar:
He loves the diversity of God's people (Being in Houston will allow him to experience many cultures!). He loves the language and culture of the Hispanic people and has been studying Spanish since college. His favorite foods are Pizza, Enchiladas, and Tapas in general. Favorite book of the Bible? Here's what he said:
"Whoever reads Galatians will be full of peace and joy as Paul talks about the freedom which Christ gives us."
God's blessings to him this summer!
