Metro East Ministries,

What a week last week!?!? Maybe that's how you feel every week!? It's been a whirlwind.:

• Our dear friends, Jimmy & Auli Giron, in the Greater Las Vegas Church, saw their 18 year old daughter, & our sister in Christ (Tiare Kiilani "Kii" Giron), finish the race.
• Driving 23 hours over the past 4 days (LA, Sacramento, Reno, NV).
• Meeting with Greater Reno Church of Christ to inspire & encourage their faith during another transition with staff.
• Staying with our dear friends Greg & Christie Watson, who will be helping lead the church in Reno, NV.
• Seeing Mae's Dad celebrate his 74th birthday.
• It brings me incredible comfort/ security knowing that God is there to comfort us. Reading this has been an oak for me: 2 Corinthians 1:3-11;. No matter what goes on, God is there for us. So let us draw near to him!


Cheryl Moore's Baptism

We missed seeing all of you this past Sunday. Thanks for the different brothers/ sisters stepping up to help fill the gap. I heard some encouraging things; Larry was very real/ honest, Sharonda shared the intense part of her job, Paul McMillan shared his heart, Ray reminded us of the power of the Holy Spirit……….. I appreciate each & every one of you!
