It’s finally here! After months and months of application work, prayers and waiting on the IRS – we are our own official nonprofit 501c3! This means more meetings and paperwork but hopefully it will open doors for foundation funding and funding from those who don’t give to churches. Our immediate goals are to learn how to write for grant applications, publish a brochure and make a new, shorter ministry video!

What this means to our donors: If you have been making your payments to Sixth & Jackson Church of Christ, please start making them to Spring Creek Ministries. They will still be sent to the same address – 5109 82nd Street Suite 7-1211, Lubbock, TX 79424.

Thank you for praying us through this lengthy process!!!


IMG 1039My sweet wife, Donna, was in the musical, “Fiddler on the Roof”, last weekend. She played the female lead role of “Golde”. She did a fabulous job and made the whole family proud! I told her that the role came naturally to her because she practices daily when dealing with me!

I texted Cody Kiker and received this update on his family. He said that Alex had just had another scan and that it was ALL CLEAR! Praise God! Cody has been having some problems, himself. He was to have a colonoscopy last Wednesday and then having surgery for a torn rotator cuff in late August.




photo0 1Many of you have been praying for Christopher Williams, an 8 year old who was in a bad car accident a few months ago. We cannot share any specific details because of a legal situation that the family is in – but – I can tell you that he has progressed farther than any of us ever imagined! We thank you for the prayers that were sent up!




Jane McCartorJane McCartor is a sweet elderly lady that has pancreatic cancer. She played piano in her church for years and dearly loves music and musicals. We were able to provide tickets for her, her husband and daughter for the “Fiddler on the Roof” musical. It took lots of effort, on her part, to come to the performance – but – she had a wonderful time. Seeing the smile on her face made it all worthwhile!
