A Word from Our Pastor

Good morning, FBC! (Or should I say, “Buenos Dias!”)

This morning, Bro. Loyd Miguel, Stephen Monreal and myself are in Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico preparing for an upcoming mission trip that will occur in July. Please be in prayer for us as we seek God’s direction.

In my place today I have invited my good friend, Bruce McCoy, the Cooperative Program director for Texas Baptists. Bruce was with us before when I was recovering from Covid back in the summer of 2021.Please extend a hand or a hug and give Bruce a warm FBC welcome!!

Also, the Men’s Retreat is now only a week away! Be praying for REVIVAL to envelop the men of FBC!

Have a Spirit-filled morning and Adios, Amigos! ?
