One of our supporters is Clovis Christian Church. They have been sending us support checks for several months now, whih I deeply appreciate. Sunday, July 30 was the last available Sunday I had for visiting other churches, so they invited Bev and me down, and I preached.
I’m really grateful for the help they give us, and also for the opportunity to tell our story. I think it encourages them as much as us.
Their pastor, Michael Stipe, has become a good friend. We enjoyed having lunch with him and his wife, Suzanne, yesterday after church services.
One of the things I have loved about this church planting project has been the widening of my network of friends. It has made me more appreciative of how rich and varied the body of Christ is.
