Community Outreach is Fun

Over the past week we've had a lot of community engagement with our partners and neighbors: prayer walks, police relations, community outreach, neighborhood BBQ's, and just hanging out.  We have really enjoyed getting to know our neighbors better and we've been blessed with invitations to pray with them and over their families. Over the past … Continue reading Community Outreach is Fun

August Review: Open House

I've been looking back at pictures of the last 3 years of our lives: selling our home, moving in with friends, getting keys to 810, … Continue reading August Review: Open House
