God is always working upstream in our lives. Little did we know that walking through a Costco at the end of 2014 would eventually lead us to a city in New Mexico that we had never heard of. But through a series of events, promptings from the Holy Spirit and seeing God’s fingerprints pointing to Las Cruces, we accepted an invitation to come out to Las Cruces by Christian Church Starters in July 2015. Our purpose was to clearly hear God’s voice about coming here to plant a new church. It was there on a ridge that overlooked the city and Mesilla Valley of 130,000 people that God stirred our hearts with a “Come to Las Cruces for the work that I have prepared you for”. God has placed a love and burden for the people of southern New Mexico in our hearts.
