Sunday was a great day for our church. We celebrated our young people returning from London, England and they did a fantastic job of sharing and praying over our church. I talked about changing our legacy as we finished our series in Philemon. The bottom line for those of us that are Christ-followers is that we are new creations!

God will do the same with us if we fight through our past and embrace our future in Him. Before I forget, I told the story about my son Colby biting and marking my son Caleb. I said I would post the pics so here they are!

This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life. We expanded the reach of our church by adding a
