Church Planting Testimonies

Cowboy UP Church

Hi guys,

Letting you know Cowboy UP Cowboy Church is doing great. Fifty-five people and three horses in attendance this last service--that is about the average attendance in our 16th service held in CPH arena.

We are enjoying what God is doing. Our last service was great--the music just set the tone for the day and the new faces there with smiles and afterward them telling me that this is great! Just made a smile on my face that I can't get rid of. PRAISE GOD for that.

We are making plans to do some fun things here. The men really enjoyed the bowling a few weeks ago and are looking forward to joining up again. We are gearing up for the arena events and the trip to Falls Creek is going to be huge.

Keep praying for us 'cause we are for all of you. Thanks for the support. And call on us for anything at anytime.

Thanks GOD bless!
