Hard Drive Crash

My computer hard drive crashed. This is the second time it has happened with this computer. I won't get it back till next week. I guess I have bad luck with hard drives.

We are still in our temp offices. It looks like we might be back in our offices in June, but probably not before then.

We have kicked off our building campaign. We hope to start building in August. It will take about a year to build. I'm excited. This church has needed to build for a long time.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Easter Rocked!

This weekend was great. Saturday, our small group went to the Arberitum in Dallas then had lunch together. After that we had a relaxing afternoon at home.

Yesterday was awesome. We had an artist named Rolando Diaz to paint while Scott preached. He painted a picture of an angel and then turned the angel into a lion's face. It was amazing. The singing was wonderful and the presentational piece we did, "You Were There," was the best we have done it. I have heard nothing but great things from the servcies. At the beginning of the 2nd service we had 3 baptisms followed by the song "Shout Hallelujah." We ended the service with "Days of Elijah." Our church loves that song.

This week may be the most normal week I've had in over a month. Praise God for that.

Blessings to you all.

Flood in the Basement

I have not written in a while basically because our basement flooded and I haven't had an office for 3 weeks and have spent much of my time working with our staff to solve our basement crisis. What happened was we had 3-4 inches of standing water in our basement after Dallas got 9 inches of rain in one day. The storm drains couldn't hold all the water we were pumping to them, so the water conveniently pumped into our basement where our offices are. As it stands today, we will be out of our offices minimally 4-6 weeks if not more while they have to totally redo the basement including ripping out all the walls because all the drywall is saturated with water not to mention they will now have to take care of an old asbestos problem in the process just to be able to rip out walls. It will be a major project, but it looks like insurance will take care of it.

Other than that things are going well. Now that I'm in a 2nd floor office, I'll hopefully have a little more time to update my blog. Sorry for the lack of posts, but life has been a little more than crazy the past several weeks and my blog has been the last thing on my mind.

Blessings to all of you.
