What a wonderful day of worship last Lord’s Day!  I’m so glad the Lord led Steven Braucht and First Baptist Plano together.  Let me encourage you to pray for Steven and Melanie and Lexi and Lily as they begin the transition:  Make room in your hearts for them!

You are such a precious church family.  Thank you for your prayers and encouragement for our family as we have “walked through the valley of the shadow” together.  We know that we are not alone.  Your support for Elyse and Jeff means the world to us.

Next Sunday morning, Steven Braucht will lead us in worship “in view of a call” to serve as Minister of Music for First Baptist Church of Plano!  I’m thrilled to announce that our Search Committee shares a unanimous sense of God’s leadership in recommending that we call Steven to serve with us.

Dedi and I are blessed to have sisters; for the years we’ve been married, we have come to truly share them as “ours.”  Again, we are blessed!

One of the blessings of Dedi’s family reunion a few weeks ago was getting better acquainted with the son of one of her cousins.  Hunter is a junior in high school and is praying for the Lord’s direction regarding the “right place” for his college education.  He expressed interest in a couple of our Texas Baptist universities, and I was eager to help him get the information he wanted.
