Our New Church Home

Today was a day of mixed emotions. We are moving from our Church building to a new one. The change came pretty suddenly and today was our last service at our Venice location. We have been there 8 years. It was a really good service and people gave testimony about the church and what it has meant to them. 

Everyone is really excited about the move and we all see it as a good thing--but still it's sad to leave the place that has been our Church home for the last eight years. 

Our kids have grown up there...we built the walls and labored over the building...we believed God for big and mighty things there...We saw salvation's and peoples lives transformed there...Prayer meetings, bible studies, revivals,  discipleship class, outreach concerts so many memories are there...We all grew closer to Jesus there.

our new home

The boys spent the day moving, working, setting up sound equipment today. In fact they just walked thru the door at 10:30 pm... Already a labor of love invested into our new Church home. We plan to meet the neighborhood this Saturday with outreach. We are baking 1000+ cookies to hand out with flyer's and invitations. We are really excited to see all that God will do in our "New" building we definitely have room to grow and I believe WE WILL! God's timing is as always perfect, we can trust him with our future!

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11

Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Psalm 127:1

Bible Conference 2014

We had a blessed time at our annual Bible Conference in Tucson! While we were there we Celebrated Jesse turning 13 and Fathers Day. We had so much fun swimming, eating, spending time together and hearing 17 sermons!
Jesses turns 13!

 Fathers Day BBQ:)

Jojo was such a stinker at conference but I really believe we turned a corner;)
He loved swiming
We were all so pumped up on the Holy Spirit after conference everyone gave testimonies. Little Jimmy lead worship and played a special song he wrote with his daddy! We are worn out physically but spiritually revived!

Jimmy's testimony at S.M.

Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
Psalm 85:6

first week of summer fun

We went to a pool party for the last day of school and the boys got award certificates. Jadon got his in Reading for improvement and hard work. Jesse got his in History and Creative Writing. Jimmy got his in History because he LOVES it!
We went on a mommy daddy date with Jesse

Oh of course we went to the beach three times!

Love this place

Last but not least we celebrated 17 years of marriage!!! Can't believe I did not get a picture with daddy:( Oh well his mini me will have to do.

The prospect of the righteous is joy 
Proverbs 10:28
