The last 6 days have been pretty monumental in the Newell household. Last Friday, Mark flew to Spokane and drove back our new church van. It needs a little TLC, but overall, it’s in great shape. Here it is:
Then on Saturday we headed to Renton to celebrate with New Life Renton for their grand opening. They took an offering for North Creek as we move into the new season of growth in our history. It totaled $7000! What a blessing! We are about half way to our goal of $30,000 for our second campus already!
On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday we had our Network Conference. It was in Vancouver this year, so all of our pastor friends from the whole state were in town. We took advantage of that and invited them to our building. We asked a lot of questions and got some great feedback from some top quality leaders. What a goldmine of wisdom!
We ended the week with a sick daughter, so sleep was relative last night! UGH! Mark and I are exhausted, but so excited for the next season of ministry. Give us a couple of days to recoup and then WATCH OUT! We’re more determined than ever to leverage all that God has blessed us with to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
But first we need a nap.
