Wayne and Cathy’s Story

“I was born and raised in Big Spring, Texas. Moved to DFW in the year 1986, after having lived in Lubbock, Chicago, California, and Austin. Was raised in a “legalism” form of religion, attending church as required by my parents, but did not know what a relationship with our Savior was. Upon leaving home at age 18, I stepped away from all forms of spirituality and pursed the hippy lifestyle, with all of its indulgences, including every form of recreational drug imaginable. This continued until 1987, when I wound up in jail for driving while intoxicated at the age of 39. Even though I did not know Jesus at that time, I bargained with God. Told him that I would stop drugging and drinking if I was released from jail, which I followed through with.”

“I was born and raised in Cordon, Isabella, Philippines. Resided in Manila during my college years. Moved to DFW in the year 2000, following a brief stay in Canada. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior at the age of 16. He continues to be my everything. I give Him the honor and the glory, as He equips me as a child of God, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a co-worker! Without the Lord, I am helpless.”

Wayne and Cathy
“We met at work in 2007. Prior to our marriage, Cathy wanted me to have a relationship with Jesus. I believed in God, but wanted nothing to do with that ‘Jesus thing.’ I looked at Jesus as some sort of myth. Cathy and I attended a multitude of churches in the area. All I kept hearing was about Jesus. We finally attended Rush Creek. Because of Pastor Russ’s style of preaching, and the praise and worship music, I began to ‘get it.’ I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior in 2012, at the age of 64. Cathy and I were married in 2013. I was baptized in 2017 at the age of 69.”
