For three and half years we prayed and labored to fill that little building. One year after we got into the storefront, we were able to purchase seventeen and half acres which is our current property. The land, purchased from a cowboy, had two barns, a roping arena, and a double wide trailer on it. We did not know it at the time, but the property also came with the mineral rights.
Shortly after the purchase of our land, we hired an architect and began the process of preparing to build. As our storefront was getting crowded, there was a great spirit and much excitement in the church because we were about to build (or so we thought). In that same year we had a huge Fall Festival on our property with over eight hundred from the Haslet community attending. What a day that was as we got to meet many people from the community and advertise our coming to Haslet in the next year
