Building a LEGO church

As we thought about our display board and how to get our kids interested, I came up with the idea of building a church out of Legos.  Lego has never created a set to build a church, so we started searching the internet and found someone on eBay selling the plans to build a Lego church. The plans called for 1,889 Lego blocks.  I soon realized that buying the blocks from Lego was going to get expensive at .20 each, and some of the pieces were no longer being sold.  That is when I found www.bricklink.com.  I placed 12 different orders with 12 different people.  Some of the pieces were new and some of the pieces were used. We learned to never buy used white pieces, they discolor as they age.

The Journey Begins…

The journey of building churches has begun.  This reality is still setting in.  We are excited and nervous at the same time.  It reminds me of the day I proposed to Brenda.  Life as I knew it was about to change and that is true today as we look to serve God in full-time ministry.  Brenda and I are now official Church Builder Appointees with Continental Baptist Missions.  It has been a blessing trusting God in each step of the way.  Each step brings its own unique set of challenges and requires us to lean on God even more.

2012 Christmas Letter

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given;  And the government will be upon His shoulder.  And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV) As Brenda and I have reflected on the year 2012, we have realized that we are truly blessed.   God has put many influential people in our lives and we thank Him for that.  Many of you have been an encouragement to us in the past year and we thank you for that. I still work for GoDaddy.com.  I have been at Go Daddy for 5 years and 10 months.  This has been the longest I have worked at a specific company.  The company discontinued the project I was working on and I was transitioned to the Business Intelligence team.  My biggest highlight at work this year was helping my team redesign … Read More
