June started off in grand style with Trent and Calah's wedding. Followed by Texas District Camp Meeting. We’ve been busy with church, quiz finals, school, and the fireworks warehouse. CUPC is in one of those stages of enjoying success. Praise the Lord! Our senior quizzers placed 3rd in the district and are headed to nationals. The fireworks warehouse is experiencing tremendous sales. The church is enjoying lots of visitors. Tonight a co-worker of one of our men was baptized and received the Holy Ghost. Our Spanish church celebrated their fifth anniversary this weekend. Two new people were baptized in their service today.
A dear friend, Andrea Smith, who recently began attending CUPC with her family passed from this life tonight after a long battle with Cancer. Andrea’s funeral will be later in the week. I know God will bring comfort to this sweet family.
Thursday Kent and I will celebrate our 26th Wedding Anniversary. Our current plan is to leave Thursday morning for a week of rest and relaxation. The trip will begin in New Orleans compliments of CUPC. Later we will head south to the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast. Our trip may be postponed a day or two due to Andrea’s memorial service. I look forward to a few days of rest. After a few days away we always return to the church refreshed and rejuvenated for another round of success!! God always strengthens our vision during these times of relaxation.
