I just wanted to post a blog about our recent visit to Missouri.
I was invited to speak at my good friend Jesse Quiroz’s church he is planting in Lincoln County called Journey church for their first birthday of the church.
Wow, what an amazing place and people Jesse has at Journey.
As soon as Brenda and I arrived on the campus of the church we could feel the buzz of activity as well as the touch of God on the efforts going on there.
God is and will do amazing things through this unconventional and passionate group of Christ followers.
We started the weekend of by doing a little sight seeing in St. Charles which is known for the launching of the Lewis and Clark expodition back in 1804.
Bren and I at the launch site of the Discovery.
We drove by the church Brenda and I planted and pastored in Lake Saint Louis from 1991 – 2003.
From Saturday we come to Sunday and what a Sunday it was.
Great 1st birthday cake…and it tasted good too.
Jess is leading Journey Church in an amazing adventure.
I had to move quick to keep up with their leader as we celebrated the churches first trip around the sun.
Standing with an amazing guy – Jesse Q is the man!
Jesse told me that we were going to baptize close to fifty people and he needed my help. What a privilege
This was one of the most amazing batismal services I have ever been apart of.
The weekend was filled with seeing friends and recalling all the great times our family had over the 13 years we lived in Missouri.
Just before leaving for the airport to catch the flight out to Phoenix, I ask Jess to drive me by our old house in New Melle.
What a great place to raise your kids.
Amazing weekend in one of the nicest places in the country.
The next blog covers the river time.
