It is hard for me to express how much I appreciate the kind words, hugs and warm handshakes I received March 4th. Everything about the day was special. Chris did a fantastic job, as always, expressing the focus of my years of ministry at Smoke Rise. It has been a true joy to work with all the staff of Smoke Rise these many years. The church will continue to be blessed by their ministry.
Thank you for all of your words of encouragement regarding Heart of a Champion Sports. Many of you have been asking me about this new ministry and I was glad to be able to share details with you.
Laura and I will plan to stay in touch as we begin this new chapter in our lives. I hope that you will keep us in your prayers. Starting this new venture will strengthen our faith. Thank you for all the years we have walked together. Smoke Rise is a great church with a great future.
