To all my Twitter followers: I'm sorry, but I was swamped with work today and wasn't able to sit down to blog during lunch. But here's the update on how our trip to Texas went this weekend.
My wife, daughter and I went to Gun Barrel City, TX this last weekend to visit Christian Life Center Church. It was an awesome experience. We stayed at the Comfort Suites in Mabank, TX and had one of the best night's sleep we've had in a while. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I've ever slept in.
The church was great. From the moment we walked in we knew we were welcome. The greeter at the door was great, handing us a bulletin and letting us know where the nursery was in case we would like to take our daughter there during the gathering. The music was contemporary and the you could really feel God there. It was great.
Pastor Barry Boatright, preached on having a passionate, extravagant love for God and even shot an arrow across the stage to hit a heart shaped target. The message was challenging and applicable to everyday life. We ate lunch Sunday with the pastor and his family and then met with him afterward. We talked about the opportunity of coming to serve there at CLC and the pastor's heart for the community there.
Pastor Barry is planning on having the Youth Pastor position filled by May 1st so we should hear something by then. Please be in prayer that we stay in God's will and serve where he wants us.
