Home from vacation

We hate it's over, but we're glad to be home. We had a great time at the beach. We saw two of my three sisters and there families, and we also got to eat supper with a cousin of mine from Cocoa Beach that I haven't seen but one time in fifteen years. We took Morgan to SeaWorld on Monday and she had a blast. She loved the shows, especially the Pirate Ship Show. The rest of the time we spent swimming in the pool, my little girl is a "water rat." She loves to swim. She is swimming without "floaties" and thinks she is a big girl, but she still likes to wear them so she can go wherever she wants in the pool. She's growing up so fast it hurts.

It's back to the normal grind now. We had a great day at HGBC yesterday, it was Homecoming. To those who don't know, that means a special service followed by a delicious meal. Great job ladies! The food was delicious. Former staff member Doug Hemanes was the guest speaker, he did a good job and I know the church was full of people who had been impacted by Doug's ministry at HGBC. We have set new SS attendance records the last two weeks (since I've been here anyway). We had 150 last Sunday in SS and we had 154 yesterday. That's amazing and God is awesome!! I am so encouraged and blessed by God's working in the hearts and lives of His people. I pray God continues to extend His favor toward us as we seek to honor Him by reaching this whole wide world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. God has also been growing our worship services; in the past four weeks we have had 250, 272, 287 in attendance. Praise the Lord! We would love to have you come join us.

Serving Him,
Pastor Mike
