2011 in Review......

What a year! 2011 bought so many surprises, challenges and adventures. Each year at this time I reflect on how God has watched over me, my family and ministry. There are so many experiences to Thank God for and so I decided to do this review.

 Memorable Moments:
  • Going on Vacation with my family to Orlando
  • Going on dates with Teresa. We LOVE going to One world cafe, 30-30 and P.Heights main street 
  • Building a surprise pergola for Teresa while she was away.
  • Seeing Ethan (my son) play drum's at Mission Peoria and main Riverside services with the youth worship band.
  • Seeing Clay (my son) develop tremendously as a soccer player
  • Reading Joy's (my daughter) AMAZING God inspired songs
  • Watching Rachel Ray cooking shows with Joy
  • Taking the boys to see Manchester United play at Soldier field in Chicago (ROONEY!!!)
  • Lunch time dates with my kids
  • Mission Peoria 2011/ BackPack Peoria - so many memories

  • Visiting Urban Ventures in Minneapolis
