Merry Christmas Friends!
We celebrate the birth of the long-awaited Savior and the blessings of 2014.
First of all, our family has expanded… by several hundred. In August, I accepted the call to Pastor Metro East Baptist Church in Wichita, Kansas. The dynamic congregation is uniquely positioned to reach the 600k+ people of the metroplex and entire central Midwest region. The church is a dream come true after so many years of ministry equipping and education. Metro East has a mission heart, a talented staff, new facilities, over 14 acres on Interstate 35 and plenty of room to grow. God is truly up to something great at the church as we've experienced new families joining and many baptisms in these first months. As well, starting in January, Starrla and a team of ladies from Metro East launch Renew, a monthly young mom’s group and outreach.
Starrla continues as National Senior Director, Programs for Mothers Against Drunk Driving. This coming year MADD will celebrate its 35th anniversary and continues to lead the nation in the fight to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime, and prevent underage drinking.
Our son, Jaxton, is 14 months old and a man on the move. He loves to read books, watch airplanes, chase his dog (Lincoln), and wrestle with Dad. He’s quite the chatterbox, and his favorite ‘words’ are “Mama,” “Dada,” “I believe,” “There it is!” and “Uh-oh.” Starrla is due with baby #2 in April, which we are proud to say will be a baby BROTHER for Jax!
Thanks for stopping by; we hope you’ll leave us a note and let us know what is new with you and your family. And if you’re traveling through the Midwest, let us know and we welcome you to spend a Sunday with us.
