7/20 – Tejas – This is the day that the Lord has made!

This is the day that the Lord has made. I will be glad and rejoice in it! If you are like me, you just sang that song in your head and hopefully it made you smile. I find that I need to remind myself constantly these days that Jesus is still in control and we are...

6/4 – Tejas – Summer is here!

Friend of Tejas, Summer is here! Wow, God has been so faithful to His promises to encourage, provide and be with us. I am so encouraged by the many families who have prayed with us and given to help Tejas through these last few months. Last month, you were...

5/13 – $15,000 – Double the Impact

Friend of Tejas, Great news! We reached our May goal of $10,000 in 13 days! It is so amazing to see how God brought families together, who love Tejas, for this common purpose. "For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever!...

4/22 – Join us in helping others in this time of need

Friend of Tejas, I confess that I find myself thinking inwardly way too often during these troubling times. Thankfully, 2 Corinthians reminds me that we no longer need to live for ourselves but for Jesus and others. At Tejas, our mission is to set the stage for...

4/10 – Tejas – Our Savior Has Risen!

Like many of you, we love Easter time, where families gather and celebrate the fact that the story did not stop on the cross but that Jesus conquered death! His story continues with us.

My favorite Easter was when we brought people from around the world and gathered at Tejas to celebrate my grandmother's 90th birthday. The Easter sunrise service, down in the meadows, was icing on the cake!

3/23 – We Need Your Help

We love hosting people and providing a place where Jesus can transform lives. It is heartbreaking that with group size restrictions in place we are unable to host groups for the foreseeable future. Tejas relies on guest fees for operational expenses, so without guests coming, we cannot pay bills or keep staff on. We want to keep our doors open to serve you and others, but the future of our ministry is in jeopardy.

The Two Are One
