Good Morning!

Well, summer is here and it is starting to get hot! The mosquitoes are in full force! Ugh! Keep an eye on the elderly, kids, and pets as the temperature rises, keep hydrated and don’t get overheated. Take care of you, for you are precious in HIS sight!

This coming weekend is Memorial Day weekend. I would like to personally thank each vet, soldier and fallen soldier in our Arm Forces who have given their all to protect this nation and our liberties. The ultimate Sacrifice and Gift of their life to us, has, is and was given. Thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough. My Thanks and Prayers for all the Fallen Women and Men.

Here is the diddy for the day!
A Texan farmer goes to Australia for a vacation. There he meets an Aussie farmer and gets talking. The Aussie shows off his big wheat field and the Texan says, "Oh! We have wheat fields that are at least twice as large".
Then they walk around the ranch a little and the Aussie shows off his herd of cattle. The Texan immediately says, "We have longhorns that are at least twice as large as your cows".
The conversation has, meanwhile, almost died when the Texan sees a herd of kangaroos hopping through the field. He asks,
"And what are those"?
The Aussie asks with an incredulous look, "Don't you have any grasshoppers in Texas"?

That’s a cute one!

Pastor WalterWelcome Pastor Richard and Janneke!

I was born and raised in San Antonio and have been a follower of Jesus for about 50 years. I attended public, Christian and military schools growing up and was called to ministry as a young teen in the mid 1970’s. Ever since, I have been involved in ministry and ministry leadership, including working as a missionary for a year in the Netherlands, where I met the most amazing woman in existence, my wife, Janneke. Together, we have been involved with a variety of churches in San Antonio since we moved there in 1987. More recently I have been privileged to serve in various lay leader roles at Alamo Heights UMC since 2006 and have been the Music Director at Asbury Church, the mission church of AHUMC, since 2014.

Janneke is a native of the Netherlands and has been a believer in Jesus since 1976. We met in Amsterdam while working together at a Christian Youth Hostel ministering to both travelers and those in difficult circumstances. How we each arrived there is an interesting set of stories we are looking forward to sharing with you. After a few years’ courtship, we married in the Netherlands and moved to San Antonio so I could finish my undergraduate degree at UTSA.

We thought we’d be in foreign missions once I finished college, but life didn’t go that path. Instead, I served God, my family and my community in hospitality, ophthalmology and banking, ever anticipating a time that we would transition to full-time ministry. Who knew it would take us 32 years, but we are thrilled to be making that transition.

We are excited God has placed us in Leakey and are eager to walk along His path together with you. We are also looking forward to getting to know each of you and introducing you to the rest of our family - a daughter, son-in-law and 2 & 1/2 year old granddaughter, and another daughter with her boyfriend, all of whom live in San Antonio. The opportunity to become part of the stories of each of your lives is such an honor to us. We can hardly wait to start connecting into the unique mission God has for placed before us as a community. Thank you for the warm and genuine welcome you have already extended to us.

Thanks and God Bless

History of the United Methodist Church

On April 23, 1968, The United Methodist Church was created when Bishop Reuben H. Mueller, representing The Evangelical United Brethren Church, and Bishop Lloyd C. Wicke of The Methodist Church joined hands at the constituting General Conference in Dallas, Texas. With the words, "Lord of the Church, we are united in Thee, in Thy Church and now in The United Methodist Church," the new denomination was given birth by two churches that had distinguished histories and influential ministries in various parts of the world.

Theological traditions steeped in the Protestant Reformation and Wesleyanism, similar ecclesiastical structures, and relationships that dated back almost two hundred years facilitated the union. In the Evangelical United Brethren heritage, for example, Philip William Otterbein, the principal founder of the United Brethren in Christ, assisted in the ordination of Francis Asbury to the superintendency of American Methodist work. Jacob Albright, through whose religious experience and leadership the Evangelical Association was begun, was nurtured in a Methodist class meeting following his conversion.
