President Obama once said: “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

Change. A concept most are not comfortable with, most do not find easy, and almost all fear. But change can be a wonderful thing. W.C. Jones was unafraid to fight for change, a change that allowed his dream of creating a place where all will be welcome, regardless of culture, race, or prejudices, to become a reality. During a time when differences of opinions weren’t applauded, and opposition was discouraged, and Southwest Region conference had little to claim as their own, W.C. Jones fought to secure a place, and we are so proud that he never gave up the fight! Pastor W.C. Jones was a visionary, and upon coming to Lone Star, he saw the potential, and fought to own the soil, that we so lovingly call Lone Star Camp. We are grateful for his efforts, and we applaud him. This welcome center will be a constant reminder, that we should be “the change we wish to see”. If there is one lesson that I could take away from Elder W.C. Jones’ life, is that in order to keep the legacy alive, I must be willing to sacrifice and give.
