We would like to introduce the newest member to our mission team, Joanna Lynn. She was born into our world January 14, 2017 at 2:10 a.m. at home in Henderson, Tx weighing 9 lbs and measuring 21.25 inches long.
This was our first home birth and it was our best delivery experience to date. We really appreciate the help of our midwife Kristin Green of Seeds of Grace Midwifery. She was a true blessing to us and even prayed with us right before Joanna was born.
In the morning we presented the work at Twinlands MBC in Channelview, TX where brother Stephen Pace is the pastor. I have known brother Pace for several years and have had pleasure of going to church camp for several years in a row. I not only count him as a great pastor, but also as a personal friend and encourager. He is the one that I think of when I read about Jesus telling the disciples to let the little children to come unto him.
I would have no hesitation at all in saying that any family within a hour or two of Channelview, would be blessed to come, join and work with this church.
It was great to see our friend of many years, Aurora Luna. She was a blessing to our family when I was Missionary/Pastor in Kingsville, Texas. I pray that the Lord would continue to bless her and her family as she continues as a shining light in this world of darkness.
The beginning of the morning service was dedicated to honoring motherhood and was beautifully done. Then, after the presenting of the work and preaching there was a wonderful dinner on the grounds and time of fellowship.
Twinlands MBC is a tight knit group of believers that rejoices in the Lord and in His word. May all of our churches be more like this one. Each church that I have gone to during Deputation I have learned things that I want to add to my ministry in the future.
In the evening, we went to Calvary MBC in Huffman, TX. where Joe Gallegos is the pastor. A while back he had scheduled with my son Joshua to come and preach. I will be coming back at the end of the month on the 29th to preach and present the work.
It great to our Lord’s churches extending opportunities for young men to Preach His word. For my wife it was the best mother’s day gift ever, to hear her son proclaim God’s word.
