June 2018 Newsletter

Hello Saints! Do we dare say that Spring is here? Hallelujah, it has certainly sprung! In Psalm 22, David spends the first 21 verses crying out to God.  He’s abandoned, alone, overwhelmed. He even says he can count all his bones. His despair is so relatable. He doesn’t seem to see any end in sight. […]

Hello Saints! I would first like to say “Thank you” to all of you who were so kind to us during the past 6 weeks, showing up for the viewing and the funeral, and sending your love and support. It was a great comfort to us. In all the times that dad went in and […]

December 2017 Newsletter

Hello Saints! I accidentally first put that as “Hello Saints?” and had to change it to an exclamation point but the truth is I have no idea how saintly you’ve been lately.

Hello Saints, In light of what’s happened in Texas and Louisiana, it only seems right that we should begin this by praying for our brothers and sisters.

Hello Saints! How has your summer been so far? This month has been so busy! Just as I sat down to write this, I thought “how long has it been since the last newsletter?” It seems like it’s been a whole season! As I was reading the other day, I started writing down scriptures that […]

This morning I was reflecting on something unique God had just done for two friends of mine. They’ve recently moved into their own trailer, which is quite an accomplishment from where they were 2 years ago when they were lost in their addiction. Jesus has totally changed their lives. A king-sized bed frame had been […]
