  1. Thanks for posting this, Trav. If you’re interested, there are some other great “God Stories” at

  2. Yeah, thanks from here too Trav. I had never visited a few of these blogs–didn’t realize they were out there. Great stuff!

  4. Thanks for the link Travis. We moved in to the new facility this past week and had our first Sunday AM gathering. It turned out great. We tweaked all of the technology in advance and everything was relatively problem free. We haven’t publicly announced services yet, but the parking lot had two available spaces and the building was full. Hmmm… should have gone to the movie theater, eh?
