Highpoint Sign

Restoring Fallen Church Sign

The church sign which had been laying flat on the ground for several months had finally been erected and restored. The two wooden posts from each end that supported the heavy sign got rotten and apparently a strong wind knocked the sign down. Thanks to Karl and Suva who joined up with a few guys from the morning service for restoring the sign. Job well done guys!

Event Recaps

Ministry, Kileen, Texas

Gathering in Killeen, Texas

Killeen, Texas (May 3-4, 2014) - Texas Island Gathering was a success. Spending time reminiscing on the morning after my wife and I reached home safely, I wanted to give all the praises and thanksgiving to our loving heavenly father for his protection and guidance through out the trip. We left Ontario, CA Thursday evening and finally caught up with Yino and Emily in Copperas Cove, TX after a long 24-hour sleep deprived journey. Upon arrival late Friday evening we were received and warmly welcomed by the hosting group along with other participants from Reno at the beautiful residence of Dominic Funug and his lovely wife Wendy. The hosting group provided such hospitable environment throughout our stay and may God bless you for that.

The next day, everyone was invited to meet up at the Island View Pavilion on Simmons Road in Belton. The venue provided a prominent feature where breeze coming from the adjacent lake kept the temperature moderately tolerable on a warm day. The isolation of the venue also eliminated any possible distractions. We were able to play loud music and BBQ without disturbing the neighbors.
