The Next Chapter


A wise man once said, “Change is inevitable … except from a payphone.” There is some truth to that statement as it pertains to life, and a big change is coming for my family soon.

In a couple of months, we will no longer be residents of the west coast.

We announced a few weeks ago to the Lake Merced Church of Christ we would be resigning our positions in June and leaving San Francisco.

The past few years in this city have been a rich learning experience. God blessed us to accomplish many of the goals we set out to accomplish and to touch many lives, but ultimately we do not feel He is leading us to be here long-term.

Another College Student Baptism at Lake Merced – Monica

Airiel and I have enjoyed getting to know Monica over the past few months.

She and I have had some great studies, and yesterday she gave her life to Christ!

It’s wonderful to be part of a church that’s impacting the lives of people.

A good chunk of our congregation was able to show up for Monica’s baptism, and it was hugs all around afterward.

One of the neat things about the Lake Merced Church is the sense of family that’s present … new people can plug in quickly. Monica felt that, and others have as well.

Congrats to Monica – we’re all proud of you!

Another College Student Baptism at Lake Merced Today – Abies

Our new friend Abies (pronounced a – bee – iss) was baptized into Christ today:

The water in the baptistery was very cold … again! You’ll notice Abies went completely stiff while going under … lol. We really need to get that fixed.

Anyway, we’re very happy about Abies. Airiel and I met her a few weeks ago and took her out to lunch today simply to get to know her a bit better. That unexpectedly led to a Bible study and her baptism.

Besides the mild case of hypothermia, today was a good day. 🙂
