Hello, Texas Baptists. Thanks to the Executive Board directors who attended committee meetings and sessions recently. It was a great few days of rejoicing in what the Lord is doing and planning for the future. I also want to thank Albert Reyes and Buckner International for honoring Texas Baptists with the Jeremiah’s Hope Award. The Baptist General Convention of Texas is proud to partner with Buckner in ministry.

Thanks to Cody Knowlton, president of the Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio, for inviting me to sit at his table a few weeks ago for the San Antonio prayer breakfast celebrating the National Day of Prayer. It was a great morning of worship!

Houston Baptist University recently received a gift of $15 million from Archie and Linda Dunham. This is the university’s largest single gift in history. It will go to provide scholarships, assist the Dunham Bible Museum and result in naming the school of business. Praise God for cheerful and generous givers.

Congratulations to the Dallas Baptist University Patriots for hosting an NCAA regional baseball tournament. Play well!

To all of those who have lost loved ones in and through U.S. military service, I pray the recent Memorial Day was meaningful and fulfilling. I am grateful for those who have fought and who continue to fight for our freedom.
