11 years in Vegas http://newcommchurch.blogspot.com/
It is hard to believe that just over 11 years ago Michelle and I packed up everything & left Oklahoma to follow a dream. So much has changed since that day. I remember arriving and unloading our van with our friends Bill & Mary who made the trip out with us (They would later move here to join us in the mission for a few years). We knew hardly anyone in Las Vegas. I thought, " What if we can't reach people"? Or "What if I fail?" We worked so hard. We really did not know exactly what to do. But we did know one very important thing: God led us to come here and plant this church. So we poured our hearts into the work and valued every relationship that he gave us. Now there is a vibrant and dynamic church that has touched the lives of so many. We have made so many great friends. This weekend will be fun to take a trip down memory lane and cast vision for our future. I hope you can come and celebrate with us.
