OK, OK, I will do a blog. I am here and doing great. I apparently must not be an "update kinda guy". But I will try harder.
Launch has launched! And now the fun begins. Its time to get down and dirty - growing a new church and building those relationships. This place is great and all the Fl. travelers have been wonderful! God is AWSOME and sent them right when we needed them most! I even tolerated JAMES to get some help :) (Actually we had 5 different James helping with setup!)
Children's church is a challenge while we have k-6th in one area but it definitely keeps us on our toes. Sheila and Lacie (Mrs. Strickland) are heading up the music and we are having a "ROCK" band practicing to take the stage in a few weeks. I know the kids will love live music.
I am still praying for support and have an idea...here it goes; I am taking "Sponsors" to give $1 dollar for every time Pastor Jason calls my cell phone. I figure not only will all of my $$ needs be covered but I should be able to put up a nice little retirement egg!!!!!
I thank God for all my church family: for prayer and support, for Cliff & M&C for putting up with the distance, and the Ebelings for being easy to work with.
Sheila and I miss all of you and will be there for AWANA closing so we will see you soon.
