So what's the news?! Well, first off- God called us to Elevate Life Church. We've been a part of Fellowship Church for almost 10yrs. Served at the mothership and then moved to the Downtown Campus. We served in the cafe, I "made lattes for Jesus" and BFlo was the "welcoming register guy." We made incredible friendships that were not only life-changing, but will last a life-time. We saw many of our friends come to Christ and get involved in the church. We participated in every conference. Our daughter was dedicated in the Prayer Garden. My husband was baptized there, and the list goes on. Quite honestly, I need to wrap this paragraph up because I get really emotional. Fellowship Church will always be our roots. We love that place, the people and know we can visit whenever we'd like. God called us to make an impact within our community, and our community is 40min away from where we were attending church. He laid it upon both mine and BFlo's hearts to make this move, and we feel 100% confident that this is where God wants us to be. Instead of 40min away from our church home, we are now less than 4min away. I can't thank our campus pastor at FC enough for being so supportive and encouraging- because of him, we've been able to jump in and get involved right away at our new home. We are back to "serving lattes for Jesus" and the "welcoming register guy."
And there's more...
We are building a new house! Another God-thing of course. Because we built our current house early on in the development of our neighborhood and because Dallas' economy is so incredible, we came across an opportunity to be able to make money on our current house so we could build a new house with a dream view! Instead of our neighbors being 10ft from our patio, we get to look at God's beautiful nature that will never be interrupted because it's owned by the Corps of Engineers. I cannot wait to be able to wake up and look at an uninterrupted sunrise every morning (assuming I wake up that early...). There's so many things that I'm looking forward to in this next house- I get my own closet (no more sharing with the unkept BFlo- ridiculously excited about this one!), no more alley- we get a front driveway, our master will be in the back and we will have an amazing balcony off the back! All of this and we don't have to leave behind any of our awesome neighbors that we love so much! We will be 2 blocks from our current house in phase 2 of our neighborhood- how crazy is that?! So if you know of anyone that's in the market for an amazing house without a view, I can help them out :)
We give God all of the glory for these changes in our lives.
