Mark also spent time this year training Bible Fellowship leaders at the Prestonwood campuses as well as in other churches who like the Open Division model. The Open Division at Prestonwood continues to grow, and we enjoy getting to know new people each week through the new classes that Mark starts. One new class, Nexus, meets on Saturday nights and is taught by friend and PhD candidate Justin Bass. Continuing over 3 years, Mark still teaches The Way, an Open Division class on Sundays.
Another vision of the Open Division, we led our 3rd team to East Asia in the spring and sent another team in the fall. The 2010 teams are already coming together.
Our growing 1 1/2 year old Vizsla loves to hunt birds and run with us...
Ran over 2600 miles between us in 2009 (farther than Houston to Seattle).
Competed in races, such as UT Tyler Half Marathon, Prestonwood Powerpoint Fit for Life 5K, YMCA Turkey Trot, and Dallas White Rock Marathon Relay.
Starrla earned certification (CFLE) in Family Life Education in March and launched a website to support coaching and consulting opportunities.
Looking back, we would do it all over!
To family and friends, we love you deeply,
and we wish you the very best in 2010!
