Arrived

We have arrived. Tonight we spend our last in a hotel, and tomorrow we unpack. A bunch of our friends will be there to help. They have already spent a lot of time getting the house ready for us. We can't believe how gracious they have been. They have gone far beyond expectations.

We called our family to let the know we have reached our destination. They too, have been supportive and prayerful as we embark on this adventure. Next Sunday will be my first, and I will be speaking on the last few verses of 2 Timothy. Karl and Darren, associate pastors, have been teaching through this book, and they asked if I would like to close it out. I feel honored to do so. I have been thinking and praying through the passage. I believe God is giving me something of significance to deliver.

  1. I'd love a copy of that sermon! We have been praying for you and are glad you are there safe.
    Paul said, "Even if I am being poured out like a drink offering, I will rejoice."
    From one drink offering to another, I will still choose to rejoice!
    May He stand at your side as you step into this new adventure.

  5. Bill! I just now found out that you have left Columbus! I am glad to see that you and your wife had a safe journey: to God be the glory! I am sorry that I did not get to say 'goodbye' to you, and thank you for having been such a kind student at Beacon University -the Chai adventure shall never be forgotten! I wish you nothing but the very best: the people of Norton are blessed to have you back. I shall continue to read the blog so that I can stay up on your adventures. May God continue to bless you and your family in all areas of your lives as you continue to share HIS GOOD NEWS. Praise Him! In His Service, Inge

  7. Richard,

    I will be back in GA from time to time and I hope we can catch up. I also hope you will make plans to go up to the cabin in Maine. It would be great if our Band of Brothers could enjoy the beauty of wild.

    I will talk to you soon. I am pirating someone's wireless!

  8. Jim,

    I look forward to catching up with you. We are getting settled in, and establishing somewhat of a schedule. How many K did you do across the frozen north this past winter?
