Just over a month to go...

We had a very full day today as we continue to get closer to launch day on September 9th. What a wild ride we've had all along the way. Today was another reminder of God's faithfulness in all that we have prayed for and worked toward. Our CM team held a training event this morning and we had over 50 CM leaders in attendance for a three-hour training meeting. The excitement in the room was awesome - you could feel the intensity of everyone hoping to be used by God in powerful ways in the days ahead. Our family pastor, Nick, did a great job of leading this time and directing our team.

In the afternoon, another team of people spent several hours working on organizing all of our equipment that had come in during the last week. We now have two brand new trailers full of great equipment for us to use. We looked at CM equipment, SM equipment, Worship ministry equipment, and are ready when our chairs come in this week - it was amazing to see everything loaded today as we prepare to use it in a couple weeks for our charter service. After that, a small group of us went over to our new church offices in downtown Round Rock to get some new Ikea desks and other small things put together. We started moving over books and other office equipment that had been building up in my office. We should be moved into our new offices completely by the end of this week - unreal.

In short, I'm really not sure what day of the week it is any more as things are moving so fast. Our leadership team meets tomorrow to give our first fruits offerings toward the plant and we have concert of praise in the evening at NW where we celebrate all that God has done this summer. God has indeed done many wonderful things in our midst. We covet your prayers in the days ahead...

Wow - now I know why we haven't heard from ya'll. Hope you are getting some rest between all the meetings and planing. Sounds exciting! Thoughts and prayers are being sent your way. Take care of yourself.
Love, Mom
