Brad Hooley, the lead pastor at Mountain View Christian Church and our great friend and partner in the Gospel, kept saying he had two goals for our time together in Kalispell: that we would get a lot of work done in the community in the name of Jesus and that we would become one united church together.

To quote Mark Hudgins from dinner Saturday night: “Mission accomplished!”

To quote Brad from his sermon on Sunday: “Things happen when a bunch of Texans show up!”

The Lord is doing something really special in Kalispell in and through our brothers and sisters at the Mountain View Church. And we feel so blessed by God to have been in the big middle of it for a full week. May he continue to bless that church family with vision and courage, with resources and faith, and with his divine presence and peace.
