Last night, we were part of something magical. We were part of a celebration, one celebrating the opening of a new church, Redeemer City Church. It was something that we were a part of last summer, we were there when this church met at the Wagners on Friday nights with 8 people and now this is a full fledged church meeting on Sunday night in San Francisco with over 50 people. It is incredible to see this happen, and I can definitely see God here with us.
Part of my new years resolution is to be a part of this, this church with these amazing wonderful people and this awesome God. And I have every intention of keeping this resolution. Though it's hard to go without Matt, I am just hoping I have the strength to keep going on my own. It's not that I can't do it, or I don't want to do it, but I guess as stupid as this sounds, these people and this church know us, Matt and Margaret. And now I think it's time for them to get to know me. It's just weird because these people are our "couple friends." All our other friends, they knew me and now they know Matt, or they knew Matt and now they know me. But these people, they know us. So it's hard to be there without Matt, but I have faith that (hopefully) they will still like me even when he's in San Diego!
We are so glad you are now here, Redeemer City Church, and we cannot wait to watch you flourish in this beautiful city we know and love, San Francisco.
