It is now 10 years since we first met your senior pastor, Dr Travis Burleson, and during those years we have worked together on both sides of ‘the pond’ and developed a really close friendship with him and his family, which has been a great blessing to both of us. In addition, we have been blessed, and continue to be blessed, by getting to know and work with many of you in the congregation, appreciating the welcome we always receive from you, such that we feel that Salado is a second home for us!
However, this visit has been different as we will have been here for a much longer period than normal, whilst Travis is on a well-earned sabbatical. It has been good to share with you a series on the Beatitudes of Matthew 5, which I hope and pray will have been a blessing to you. May this study of God’s word encourage us all to live a counter-cultural lifestyle to the world’s normal way of living so that we can, through the power of the Holy Spirit, make a difference as we are salt and light to our needy world.
Thank you for your love, concern and care for Enid’s health whilst we have been here and we would ask for your prayers for our long flight home on the 5th of August. We look forward to seeing y’all again soon!
