Luke Speckman – June 2, 2013

Greetings from Ventura! What an incredible week this has been! Tuesday evening, we established our first foothold in Santa Barbara as Jose & Liz Corral arrived from Phoenix! The second wave came in on Thursday around midnight when the “Chicago Fab Five” (Jason, Dara, KaSella, Dori, and Bria) pulled into Ventura where they’ll be staying until they can secure housing in Santa Barbara!

On Friday, Pat & Sparkle Boea Jr. and the South Central Campus Ministry came to Ventura to welcome the “Chicago Five” to California and join us for our Campus Devo! The devo was electric with about 40 in attendance! South Central stayed the night in Ventura, and then on Saturday morning, I cooked breakfast for everyone (about 50 people) at our house where we had an amazing time of fellowship!

Another highlight was seeing the Spirit send-out the seven who placed membership in Ventura – along with our own Richie & Elizabeth McDonnell and Dale Bryant – to form the Santa Barbara Sector! Please keep them and us in your prayers as well as the first Santa Barbara Service which will be on June 16th! We are so proud that the Lord has raised-up Richie & Elizabeth to lead the Santa Barbara Sector and we have full confidence in them! A special thank you to Chicago for sending “the Fab Five” to us, as well as to the Phoenix Church for sending the Corrals! Please keep us in your prayers!
