pastor mat

One week ago tonight, the sweet people of Sunnyside Baptist Church in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, voted unanimously to call Mat Alexander as their pastor.

And we are so glad they did.

It's a quaint church way out in the country, and from the moment we walked into the church four weeks ago, we felt right at home.

The people are loving, kind, real, and very down-to-earth. We have completely fallen in love with them.

They are also building us a parsonage that should be ready in just a couple of months. We are so happy about being able to live in a house again! The house is right next to the church, so Mat is really glad he'll be able to walk to work.

We have prayed and prayed for the Lord to bring us a church to serve, and He has answered our prayers. God is so faithful, even in the big and small things...

I can't wait to get to tell you more as Mat and I grow and learn about being a pastor and a pastor's wife. We look forward to seeing what God will do at SBC!
