Debbie and I had a great time with the folks from Salina, Kansas as we shared some thoughts about kids’ ministry. They are just a super nice group of people and it was fun to talk with people who are excited about ministry. Marsha is the children’s director there and has been doing that for over 15 years. She is a pretty cool lady and has a passion for kids. Also, it was good to get to talk to our friend Lance Albin. He is the student director and is doing such an amazing job.
We had quite a shock to come out of the church last night and see a blizzard going on! A couple of people told us that it was snowing but I wasn’t expecting such hard, wet, blowing snow. In fact it was blowing so hard that I had to get out and clean off my headlights so I could see. As we headed toward home we saw several cars and trucks off in the ditch but by the time we got to McPherson the moisture had turned back into rain. We made it home safely and Nate (my son) and Dale Poore had made Baby Back Ribs and saved me a rack! I’m here to tell you they could go into business. They were tender and tasty just the way I like them. Not only did I indulge myself in that, they also had several pies from Spears! Needless to say my diet got sent to the back seat for a day.
Thanks to all who prayed for us as we drove to Salina and back. We really do appreciate it very much.
