Comments:

I went to Southwestern Assemblies of God Bible College in Waxahachie, Tx for 2 years after leaving Denver City. While there, I met Billy Nickell from Andrews...the love of my life! We were married in 1974 after graduating with a B.S. degree in Education from the University of North Texas in Denton. We traveled across the United States for 6 years as Evangelist...loving the experience of making new friends and enjoying mile after mile of our beautiful USA. During this time we had an Airstream Trailer as our home, which made it very comfortable for us...especially with us starting our family in 1976 and having both of our daughters while traveling.
In 1980, we were invited to make our home in Canyon, Tx. as pastors of the First Assembly of God church. For the next 22 years we were blessed to pastor the same church and raise our girls there in Canyon. Since then, we have been pastoring Amarillo's First Family Church (First A/G) in Amarillo, taking the pastorate in the spring of 2002.

We have 7 precious grandchildren, 5 boys and 2 girls, who all live here in Amarillo. Our oldest daughter, Felecia, will be graduating from WTA&M in the spring of 2013. She and her husband also pastor here in Amarillo (a church not far from us). Our youngest daughter, Andrea, is a pharmacy tech, but works along with her husband as joint owners of "The Car Lot" on I-40 East here in Amarillo. They and their 3 children attend our church and are also actively involved in ministry there.
We have enjoyed working for the Lord here in Amarillo and just this year of 2012 have completed paying off our church and Family Life Center.
Billy accepted a part time position as Sec/Treas for our District in April of 2010. While continuing his pastorate here in Amarillo, this new position requires us to travel more frequently and has added new experiences to our busy lives....(we just got back from Maui,Hi...a work related trip...just terrible!!! LoL). We are enjoying our family and our lives together as we continue to follow God's Plan for us and our ministry.
I would love to see my DC classmates...so sorry I have been unable to attend any of the class reunions, due to our weekends being the most important work days of the week.
If anyone comes through Amarillo, stop...and give me a call....I would be honored to see any of my friends from Good Old DC!!! (806)-683-1116
I have been truly blessed by the Lord...
Blessings to everyone and your families!!!

School Story:

I love all of the memories....but being in the musical "Oklahoma" is at the top of the list. So much fun preparing and preforming. I loved being in choir and going to contest...bunches of sweet friends. I truly was blessed to grow up in Denver City....you can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl!!!
