Thank You Wilshire Church for being a beacon to Dallas, Texas, and Christianity at large.
Promised Finn a Mavs game for his b-day and he is holding me to it. Thought I'd try here to see if anyone has tickets to sell before I go to Ticketmaster...just sometime in December.
Between this Preparing for Worship section today (thanks Leigh Curl) and George Mason ending his sermon today with a quote from Les Mis, I rejoiced knowing Wilshire is my people. Love how much we celebrate the voice of God with and through the arts.

Here's a little Friday afternoon joy to share: Grandchildren of George and Kim Mason singing about George to celebrate his 30th anniversary at Wilshire.
Grace is amazing.
Last night at the Youth Choir Mission Tour Homecoming Concert, Jeff Brummel shared his appreciation for all of the chaperones, ministers, parents, and students that made all of Youth Choir possible....Jeff, it goes without saying, without you none of that would be possible. Thank you so much for all you do and all the time you give to the youth and this program. You sir are very much appreciated as well

You've probably already seen this, but when I saw it, I immediately thought of Wilshire, Broadway, and now University Baptist in Waco. Goodbye BGCT and SBC.

We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our Wilshire family for the support you have given to our Baby Kai and our family. We believe that he is where he is today because of the prayers that have been lifted up on his behalf. November 29th was an ordinary morning. I woke up, got my coffee, and read my daily devotional. I don’t remember the exact details, but it spoke of seeking Christ’s face in the midst of troubles. I had no idea the events that would transpire throughout the day. Later that morning, Peyton came down from her room with some abdominal pain. She called the doctor- nothing seemed alarming. The baby was moving, and she was not having major cramping. So, I went on with my usual routine. By late afternoon, her pain had increased, but the doctor had not returned her phone calls. Thinking it was probably a reoccurring kidney infection, we decided to go ahead to the hospital to play it safe. By the time she checked in and had a preliminary exam, Peyton was at 9cm, and there was no way to stop labor. Without any preparation, she had to deliver the baby at only 26 weeks and 6 days gestation. We were not ready, to say the least. I was trembling on the inside, while trying to stay calm and strong for her. I immediately called Bobby to come at once. I called my mother, Carole Duval, to contact the church. Within a short time, loved ones began to appear. Joan Stovall Hammons was the first Wilshire member to arrive. She stayed close by me, sharing encouragement, prayers, and tears. My dear friend, Maria Giangiulio Blois, was faithfully present, tending to my children and family. Things are a little foggy, but I remember my knees weakened and my stomach knotted. I was extremely thirsty, so I made several trips down the hospital hall to the water station. As I walked, I had deep conversations with God. At some point, the words from my devotional came to me- “to seek Christ’s face in the midst of troubles”. I pleaded to see Jesus’s face in that moment. I made that trip back and forth- talking alone with God and then returning to Peyton and loved ones. The time was getting closer- the baby was coming, but we had to wait for the NICU team to arrive. I started down the hall for one more water, and, at the other end, was Mark Wingfield coming towards me. He was wearing a “I Am Wilshire” T shirt. We met half way, and we talked for a minute. Mark told me that we were not going to rely on statistics, but we would depend on God’s capabilities. And, that’s what we did. Bobby and Jackson’s mom, Jennifer, walked by. We stopped ther, held hands, and Mark led us in prayer. Baby Kai was born shortly after that at 7:01pm- weighing 2lbs 5oz. Jackson and I were in the delivery room with Peyton. Kai was so small, and he was blue and not breathing. It seemed like an eternity, but the NICU team took over. They worked diligently to manually pump air into Kai’s immature lungs. He was then rushed down to the NICU, and our hospital stay began. By morning, Peyton’s youth group quickly came to support her. Darren DeMent brought love and words of encouragement from his family. Ellen James and Mary Lu Sprier Hare beautifully brought energy and bountiful amounts of snacks and goodies. George Mason and Kim Mason came soon to Peyton’s side to extend words of compassion and celebration. Over the weeks and months, Joan consistently checked in for needs and prayer requests. The church held us up and provided for our family in so many ways. Bobby and I received personal phone calls and texts from Wilshire members and staff. Over the holidays, Peyton received a special connection to her long time Wilshire friends, Julie Francis and Emily Akins. We are so grateful for our Sunday School class, Journey, directed by Carolyn Law Murray, who generously helped with Christmas expenses for our other three children. We give thanks to those who have brought loving gifts to the baby- Abi Dodrill and Katie Ferguson Murray. I know I am leaving out specific names, but we have been touched by the outpouring of love from Wilshire. At the church, I have been uplifted by hugs and sincere questions, regarding baby and Peyton. The consistent prayers and the weekly Prayers of the People have been especially meaningful- I have confidence that these prayers have been genuine. Thank you to Kathi Lyle who has faithfully included Kai into the Pastoral Care Notes each week. Wilshire, we are truly grateful to have you as a church and a family. Kai had his first pediatric appointment out of the hospital, and everything looks good so far. However, he will have to see a lung an eye specialist, as well a dermatologist. We appreciate continued prayers during this next transition. But, we praise God that Kai is home! Thank you, Wilshire Baptist Church, for allowing us to see Christ’s face through you. We are overcome with love and gratitude❤️ Love, The Louder family
