This Is Not The End, But The Beginning

Our lives have radically changed in the last few weeks. After much prayer and counsel my husband came to the decision that our church will be merging with our mother church that is nearby. This is a BIG change for our family, for the last 10 years we have labored and pioneered in our baby church. 

We have wonderful memories and have throughly enjoyed the church planting adventure! It might not have worked out exactly like we dreamed it would but it worked out just as God wanted. We ministered to many people and many people ministered to us. Our family grew in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man! During these 10 years of service God has brought increase to every area of our lives...our family doubled and our finances more than doubled! God is so good he has proven himself real over and over a healer, as a shepherd, as a savior, as a provider, as a friend. 

We are beyond blessed in more ways then we can count! I am so glad we said yes all those years ago, I am so thankful for all we learned and experienced!  So it is with joy and hopeful anticipation that we enter the next chapter of our lives, we KNOW God has good things in store for us! Just say yes to Jesus and live the life he created you for!

Out last service!

Daddy kicks it off with a short word then testimonies by some of the congregates. 
You can watch my testimony at 23 minuets in:)
Jesse's testimony at 31 minuets in
Little Jimmy's testimony at 38 minutes in (beware if you watch his, you might cry!)

The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands Psalm138:8

The memory book I made:)

God bless you, Tesha and family! Thank you for doing the Lord's work. 10 years is a steadfast, solid commitment.

I'm sorry to hear this but God always has a plan. Think of all the lives your touched, if you hadn't tried they would not have gotten to know God. Wishing you all the best. ((HUGS))
I saved the video to my YouTube to watch later.
