PAX South and Texas Trip

Jan 28 – Feb 1, 2016 – We took a long weekend to head down to the second ever PAX South in San Antonio, TX.  The weather was so perfect that we only wound up going to one full day (plus the Friday night concerts).  So what other exploration did we do? The first night…

Easter in San Antonio

April 5, 2015 – Happy (much belated) Easter!  We spent some time trying to find a church to attend, and finally settled on a Vineyard church plant.  The church met in a little building near a park, where we were slightly confused to see people camping and smoking BBQ.  Later we learned this is an…
