Hello and welcome to Building Bridges blogsite! Thank you for "stopping by!" It is our prayer that you will be encouraged by the posts on this blog. May the Lord bless each one of you!
In Christ's love,
The Bridges family
Tom, Bea Ann, Christa, and Kate


  1. We think it is wonderful you have invited us into the "nitty gritty" goings on of the Bridges family. Loved the update. Using pictures is great. We like to be able to visualize friends and family in their every day settings.

    "Hospitality" seems to be getting a lot of attention in evangelical circles. Our Sunday evening adult study groups are using "The Hospitality Commands" by Alexander Strauch. Leroy and Clover Johnson always come to mind when I think of Christians practicing hospitality. There were many other faithful servants at FEFC in Moline, too. It is great that you guys are carrying that Christian baton. As an aside, the Hangers (Ron, Karyn and Gretchen) will be spending next weekend with us on their way to Florida.

    Love In Christ,
    Bud and Cheryl

  2. Tom,
    We will be praying for you tomorrow as we eat Dwayne's 3 (so far) varieties of chili and watch the Arizona Cardinals beat the Steelers! (We Ohioans are so optimistic!)
    Thanks for the pictures of your hospitality so far. What a great idea.
    You put our little 23-year-old-guest book from Hallmark to shame!
