The Byrd family continues to settle into their home on the panhandle of Florida after several hurricanes and a new addition to the family! Phil and Tammie’s daughter, Maddie and her husband Diego, welcomed their baby boy, Gideon Valor Mitchell Velez by God’s glorious wonders on October 16. All are well and home now.
Panama City, Florida is the Byrd’s new mission field and there is plenty of need. The Byrd family has come along side of Calvary Chapel Panama City Beach. CCPCB is a small church plant of approximately 3 years now from Orange County, Chalvary Chapel, Brea specifically, led by Pastor Anthony Noble, his wife Desiree and their parents. However, The Byrd’s primary mission field is in the high schools. They believe if the young high school men and women are taught, shown true compassion, given Godly examples of adult leadership and marriage, and counseled according to the Word then blessings will surely follow. The Byrd family is excited for the opportunities to serve and continually pray for God’s direction in the ways He wants His mission to be accomplished with His doulos and His grace.
Phil and Tammie and family
