1: He'll Carry Us Through Our second year, did we pass our test? A year of hard work and trials. Did we give God our best? A Spirit of excellence is what He requires. If we follow Him, He'll give us our heart's desires. He's promised to carry us, if we just trust and believe. We'll continue to strive and study. With love, we'll proceed. With devoted, faithful leaders, we've been blessed. Words can't express our love for you. You've passed every test. We'll submit to your leadership, just as God has commanded. We'll watch, pray and learn. We'll accept what we've been handed. We'll look to God to carry us through, because we are so blessed and highly favored to have leaders such as you! May God Bless You Bishop and Pastor Speller We Love and Appreciate You and Your Family!
2: To Bishop & First Lady, God has truly blessed us to have you in our lives, teaching us how to walk upright before God. May God continue to strengthen you and lead you as we press towards Heaven. We love you and appreciate you both. Larry & Maria Choice
3: Thanks to God for placing you in our lives. We thank you for just being who you are and for all you've done for the Core family (from the Alaskan frontier to Texas)! We couldn't ask God for more dedicated Pastors! He knew what we needed, when we needed it. Thank you for all you've sacrificed through the ministry. You did it without hesitation and we, nor God will ever forget it. In addition, thank you for the prophecy from God. Only God knew the perfect timing for the blessing of joy. She couldn't have come at a better time. Love, Deacon Eugene, Sister Karen, and Mi'Kayla Core
4: Dear Bishop and Pastor Speller, It seems like we have known one another forever. I suppose that five years is a long time but it has been a great time nonetheless. We thank God for the honor and the privilege of having such wonderful and beautiful assets of God in our lives. We truly love and cherish you. We thank God for the example that you and your family set for everyone and we thank God for your realness and for being so down to earth. It never ceases to amaze us that you are so accessible and that you make time for all who are in need. We bless God for the many sacrifices that you have made and the many late nights that you have given up to come to our aid as a family.
5: You have sown so much into us. We have no idea where to begin to sow back to you. This letter doesn’t do the two of you justice in that words could never truly express how we feel about you and your family. You all are a work of art before God and it is refreshing to get a glimpse of that art every now and again. You all are inspirational and encouraging and we know from the bottom of our hearts that our lives would never be where they are today if it had not been for our life changing and life altering encounter with you. You have been there for us through the thick and the thin. You have nurtured and loved us in spite of everything and not once have you judged us and we bless God for that. Your selflessness is a jewel in and of itself and it is precious and valuable. You are both truly gifts from God and we appreciate you for your obedience to Him. We thank God for the vision that He has placed in you and we look forward to seeing Him continue to bless you and your family abundantly! We love you very dearly and we always will. With Love and Adoration, The Garris Family
6: Happy Anniversary! Reginald and Felicia Taylor
7: Psalm 119 vs. 2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. Happy Anniversary! The Samuels
8: Happy Anniversary! Love, Missionary and Marquis
9: Since the year 2000 I had been lost. My parents split apart, And I was deeply hurt by that loss. Wisdom didn’t begin to surface till about 2008. 2009 I thought I was losing my mind. I didn’t know why, But all I could do was cry. Then I began to pray, And God showed me the way. | Fall of ‘09 God sat Bishop right in front of me. I had been praying for a church that would fulfill my needs, And God knew the Speller’s ministry was the one for me. From the moment I walked in the doors, House of Faith felt like home. Bishop led me in, but his family and the love within His church let me know it was a wrap, There was no turning back My prayers had been answered. -Kelsey Steele
10: Bishop and Pastor, When I moved from Michigan to Texas, God told me He had something for me, but I had to go to Dallas to get it. Well, in getting here, I found Him through the House of Faith. Thank you for being here for me through Christ. May God bless and keep you both always. I love you both. Mother Rosaland
11: When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in August 2005, my son and I lost every material thing we possessed. It was a very difficult and challenging time in our lives. However, we were thankful to God that all of our loved ones survived. We found ourselves starting over again here in Plano, Texas. We attended several churches but my heart was not content. | I prayed that the Lord would bless our lives with a church family that we could call our own. God was faithful and answered our prayers. We are truly home. Bishop and First Lady have both filled the void in our lives by teaching, and preaching the uncompromised word of the living God. The love, tenderness and kindness you so freely give to us, is very valuable and we both love and cherish the gift God has given us. May God forever bless you. Happy Anniversary!! Thomas and Cynthia
12: Our lives have been forever changed due to your patience, love, dedication and faithfulness. Thank you for allowing God to use you to bring others to Him. We love you and you will forever be a part of our lives. God Bless you and your family. Osie, Naylan, Devin, Christian and Bella Wyatt
13: Thanks for being a blessing to our family and here for us every time we have been in need. We love and appreciate you more than words can express. Corey, Marcella, Jessica, Keno and Tytus
14: Our family would like to thank Bishop and Pastor Speller for all their support during our difficult time. The entire House of Faith Family has become our family, Everyone has been so supportive towards us. We have learned and grown spiritually over the last few months and we can not begin to thank everyone. God has sent this wonderful church family to us and we thank him daily for sending such a wonderful one. The Kelley Family
15: Bishop and First Lady, I am not able to express in words how grateful I am for your guidance, wisdom, and support over the past two years. Thank you for allowing me to mess up, learn, and grow under your care. Without your selflessness a couple of years ago, who knows where I may have ended up. So I thank God for you and the vision that God has given you on a daily basis. I love you both! Love YOUR FAVORITE saint, Bri
16: God is awesome and He "WOWs"us when we are not expecting it. Little did I know when leaving IHOP one morning, that the couple God placed in my path would come to be such a huge impact to my life. The Word of God that you shared with me and my friends in the parking lot of IHOP that day stayed with me. A couple of years later, I found myself in a desolate and lost place spiritually. I desperately needed and wanted a church home where the Word of God was taught in a way that I could grow and my hunger for the Word could be filled. One Friday, God woke me up in the early hours of the morning around 2:00 and spoke - "It's time to go." I was like - "where God? Where do I go?". I heard Him say - "House of Faith". I had not forgotten the IHOP parking lot Pastor and his wife, and I instantly knew where God was leading me to go. The next Sunday I pulled up to the doors of House of Faith and when I looked at the church, I felt fear and was about to turn away and leave. But again, I heard the voice of God say "Go on. I am with you". Well the rest, as they say, is history. I was in awe of the Word of God that was delivered that Sunday. I came back again on the Wednesday. Again, another awesome Word. I felt the dried up, desolate parts of my heart coming back to life.
17: I had been like a dried up sponge thirsty for the Word of God. My heart was leaping with joy. I felt life coming back into my body. Hidden buried past hurts and wounds became sealed up and healed. Even Sean has gained a more intense interest in learning more of the Word of God, and living for God and building a relationship with God. We are blessed! Thank you Bishop and First Lady Speller for all that you do for (us) the flock that God has placed in your hands. Through your sacrifice and dedication, we are blessed. What a beautiful sight it is to see messengers coming with good news! How wonderful it is when they bring the good news that we are saved! How wonderful when they say to Zion, "Your God rules!" (Isaiah 52:7)
18: Just want to say thank you for all of your prayers and supportWe thank God for you and pray that God blesses you with many more blessing and the desires of y our heart. Keep preaching the infallible Word of God and compromise for no one..It is through God that we came this far and it will be through God that the vision will come to passYou can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Phil 4:13. Happy 2nd Church Anniversary!! May God bless you with many more!!! The Washingtons
