Today is a very special day for us as we welcome home our missionaries from the mission field. On a Monday morning, almost two week ago, these young people and their sponsors joined hands together with their parents and prayed for the Lord to use them to touch the lives of the kids they would be working with at Kamp Barnabas. God is so faithful! He has once again done exceedingly more than anything we could have imagined. This morning you have heard from some of these young people and I hope that you have been blessed.
He was born deep in the heart of Texas, San Antonio to be exact. His daddy was a preacher who had a gift for communicating God’s Word, and the people would come from near and far to hear him Sunday after Sunday.
The family moved from San Antonio to Corpus Christi in the mid-40’s because dad felt called to begin a new church. He worked hard and God blessed. Today, the church started by the aspiring and tireless preacher is known as The Parkway Presbyterian Church. The family liked Corpus Christi and they enjoyed the fellowship of their new friends.
