We spent the month of February in Dallas fund -raising and attending a cultural work shop with M.R.N. There was a couple named Tim and Michelle Hoover that we met last summer who opened their home to us. Tim and Michelle are extremely involved with the Greenville Oaks Church of Christ, in Allen, TX. As we got to know this couple we were really impressed by their hospitality. After we left we reflected on how wonderful it is to be a Christian. We have family wherever we go because of the body of Christ. Amen!
God has raised up partners for the Reyes family! After several months of searching and prayer God has sent us an overseeing congregation. On Thursday January 28th we learned that Sunset Church of Christ in Lubbock, Texas has committed to being our overseeing congregation. My wife and I can not imagine how God could of blessed us with a better overseeing congregation. If you know anything about the Sunset Church of Christ you know that they are extremely mission minded. Our families’ lives have been changed as we attended Sunset International Bible Institute. There are many people at Sunset Church of Christ who we have grown close to over the last three years.
January 24th will always be a very special day for the Reyes family. Our oldest daughter Dominique (16) responded to the invitation song on Sunday morning expressing that she wanted to be baptized into Christ (Gal. 3:26-27). Dominique was baptized when she was 11 years old but realized later she did not truly understand the New Testament teaching of baptism. My wife and I had been praying for the time that she would some day make the decision to make Jesus her Lord and obey the gospel. This was a real surprise for us, but it was a wonderful surprise. It was also a blessing to share this victory with our brothers and sisters at the New Home church of Christ. Please keep her in your prayers as she continues to grow in her salvation.
