When God shows up at just the right time.
I am serving for 4 months while raising support for Utah at an amazing church in Alabama. The pastor I am working for is simply amazing [thank for being a true BROTHER to me], and the church and it's people have been a comfort and friend [no FAMILY] to us right away.
It was painfully difficult to leave New Hope and all our family and friends, but it has been amazing to see how people we don't even know have accepted us as family. It has helped make this transition easier.
I have been working with staff development, staff alignment, budgeting, building projects [check out this GOD SIZED STORY...for real], spiritual development/assimilation, programming [the pic is part of the work I did to help re-do most of their lighting, and yes, that is some sick stuff for portable church] church growth, etc., etc., etc....I have loved every minute of it, and it came at just the right time.
I love how GOD stretches us that way. I have ALWAYS found that even though I might whine, beat God up, beg, plead, get angry...HE ALWAYS shows up at just the right time. [love the Abraham story when the knife is raised...]
Our web site [www.missionwest.tv] will be up soon to follow the precise details of what's next...PRAY FOR US!
THANK YOU to the people of NEW HOPE for sticking behind us, and a HUGE THANK YOU to the people of CROSSPOINT who picked up where my family left off. And thanks to my God for HIS perfect timing.
