Lately I’ve noticed several types of trees and bushes already in bloom and this morning on the way to church I saw a small patch of bluebonnets alongside MoPac. I hope we will have a bumper crop of wildflowers again this year.
At church everyone met for a single service. When that happens, the sanctuary is always packed, with some people having to stand. After his sermon, Pastor Rob Harrell announced his intention to transition out over the course of 2016 and into a new ministry called “Shepherd’s Support International” (SSI). SSI provides pastors and wives conferences around the world. He will also encourage pastors and business leaders locally and internationally through English Language Institute. We are sorry to lose him as our senior pastor but, at the same time, we know that he should do what he believes God wants him to do. He will be difficult to replace; he has been with us for a little over 25 years.
