We recently sent out Christmas cards that said you could find more information about us on our web site. I just completed installing this CMS (content management system)on this website so that Amy and I can better distribute informaton faster and hopefully easier . Of course I wanted to have it online by 8:00PM Christmas Eve. but I missed my target. (Amy does not like it when I'm late! She runs this family like a Military operation!
I ran into some issues when installing some of the required programs to allow me to get this site up and running so I'm going with what I have ready for now! So please re-visit often to see what new things I'll introduce over Amy's Christmas break.
For those of you that recieved our annual Christmas letter we gave this web site as a place to read more information about us. Well here it is.......
The Quick version for now.......
2007 I spent my summer moving the Hospital's computer network from West Union to Seaman. Amy and I both spent several days several that required some over night stays without going home.
2008 January resigned from Hospital, Started pastoring at Tranquility, Amy and I enrolled in SOMA's Southern Ohio School of Ministry. www.somafamily.com
2008 June - Had VBS at Tranquility over 112 enrolled for the week.
2008 July Worked Bible camp and started Dirt Track racing at www.brushcreekmotorsports.com with some friends. Although I'm having fun with racing, my intent is to promote ministry by using my race car and it has opened up serveral new ministry opportunities I had never dreamed of already.
Recently a person from church donated money to purchase a bus. We found one and are working to put it into action.
Tonight Amy and I had the honor of delivery some gifts that we gathered up for a family this Christmas season. The cool thing is that I found out the gentleman is a mechinic and wants to help get the bus ready to put on the road.
We have serveral needs for 2009: My Income, I've had some people that currently do not live close enough to attend Tranquility Community Church that has chosen to support me. I have ask those that wanted to support me finanucally to send their weekly, monthly, or yeartly gifts made to Tranquility Community Church 141 Old State Route 32, Peebles, Ohio 45660. Note: Mark your check for Pastor's Salary. This is allow me to continue my ministering as I have been in 2008, allowing TCC to move from thier monthly $1500.00 shortage. www.tranquilitycc.com
God provided a bus and now I'm trusting him to provide the insurance and team to take care of it. If you are one of the 6 people that would like to start us with a 150.00 gift to get the insurance and the first few tanks of gas please send your donation made out to Tranquility Community Church 141 Old State Route 32, Peebles, Ohio 45660. Note: Mark your check or donation Church Bus Ministry.
Pray that God will send us people that will pray for Amy and I everyday.
More to come during this Christmas break.
