One year ago today, I flew from Birmingham, AL to Cape Girardeau, MO. I remember our new pastor, Mark Anderson, picking me up from the airport and taking me to dinner at Olive Garden. I remember him sharing about what God was doing in his life. The vision that God was giving to Lynwood. I’d heard most of it before, but I could tell how personal it was. I was so excited to hear God speaking to him and challenging him and his wife. We are so honored and blessed to serve with Mark and Karen.
I can say that this has been challenging year personally. If you follow this blog at all, you know what I’m talking about. But I can also say that this has been one of the best years. We serve a great body of believers. They have loved us so much. They have taken care of us. They have responded to our leadership and challenged us to be better at what we do. We love leading worship with them and serving our great Savior together. We look forward to many more years.
My family stayed in Alabama that week to oversee the packing and loading. It was tough. But my first choir rehearsal was definitely the highlight of the week. It was so exciting.
One year has passed, but our excitement is just as alive as ever.
We love you Lynwood!
