Well, it's been good to be in Greenville and catch up with friends and family. This past week, I took some time off and joined my brother and his family on a vacation in St. Augustine, Florida. We stayed in his RV at a campsite in Anastasia State Park. It was fun to visit various historic attractions (such as this lighthouse) in the mornings, then spend the afternoons at the beach.

I'm now back in Greenville for the weekend, then on Monday I will head to the Wilds for the annual GFA conference.

May Already?

My last post was titled "Busy April," and it certainly was. So busy in fact, that I can't believe it's the middle of May already. The Lord has been good through it all though.

I spent April 19-24 in Cedar Rapids, IA for a mission conference at Friendship Baptist Church. I really enjoyed that week, as I already knew many of the missionaries. It was a time of real encouragement and spiritual blessing. The following weekend, I was in Green Bay, WI. There I was able to stay with an old college roommate. It was fun to meet her family and catch up on her life.

From there, I drove to Milwaukee, WI to spend a few days with some friends. Lake Michigan was beautiful although the weather was quite windy and cool. I actually saw a few snow flakes -- in the last week of April!

On Wednesday, April 30, I spoke at Bethel Baptist Church in Schaumburg, IL. It is quite a large church, but everyone was kind and friendly, so I didn't feel too overwhelmed:-) The next two weekends (May 4 & 11), I spoke in Fort Atkinson and New Lisbon, WI.

At present, I am in Greenville, SC to speak at Mount Calvary Baptist this Wednesday evening. I always enjoy coming to Greenville as I still have many friends here, not to mention 2/3 of my immediate family (dad, brother, sister-in-law, and 2 nephews).

I have been having a bit of difficulty filling my schedule for this fall. Please pray with me that the Lord will lead me to those churches in which He would have me minister.
