An E-News Message From Pastor John

Hey guys!

This week I wanted to share a story with you all... a story about selflessness and the generosity of one of our very own Hope attenders! This past year Chris Carroll heard of the plight of a man in Georgia, a police officer and father of two little girls, who needed a kidney transplant. This man's daughters had posted a picture on social media saying "Our daddy needs a kidney!" Their post quickly went viral and when Chris Carroll saw it, he just knew he had to say yes. Carroll, who is a healthcare consultant and grandfather, got tested and found out he was a perfect match!

The transplant took place in September and they are both recovering well. He is sharing his story this week on Dr. Oz. It will air Tuesday, December 2 on Fox KDFW 21 at 2:00 PM. I'm so proud of Chris and how he was so willing to show love and compassion to someone who was a stranger to him before this experience, and now they are like family! It's a great reminder to us all to say yes to whatever God is calling us to do.

This week as we celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends... eating delicious food and watching football... let's all make sure we take time to thank the One who has blessed us with so much. He never leaves our side, even when our circumstances are difficult, and for that we can ALWAYS be grateful!!

Love you all!


Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
