Over the last several years, I have had a burden for the small community that I grew up in, China Spring. China Spring is a suburb of Waco, Texas. China Spring High School is a 3A school. It is a growing community.
My family moved to China Spring in the Spring of 1984. There were several churches in the area.....good churches, but not one Assembly of God Church. So, we had to make the drive to Waco. We ended up finding an A/G church on the other side of Waco. So, we would drive 25-30 minutes to go to Victorious Life Church.
So, for the last several years, I have prayed on occasion that God would send someone to start an Assembly of God church in the China Spring area. I had even prayed to see if that was what I was supposed to do with my life. I really felt that my role was to pray that God would send laborers.
My Dad serves as the business administrator for Victorious Life Church in Waco. VLC is the church I grew up in. A few weeks back, Dad told me that VLC was starting a church in China Spring. They are even using the High School Cafeteria as the meeting place for this new church.
They launched their website this week. www.vlcchinaspring.com
I am so excited to see a church in this area. It really is an answer to prayer. Matt Johnson, the Youth Pastor at VLC, will serve as the Lead Pastor at VLC in China Spring. Please pray for Pastor Matt and this new work.
