How well can you fly a helicopter?

News from North Carolina

I just want to write a quick note to let everyone know that we are having a great time in North Carolina. God has been helping us in our deputation services. We have had the opportunity to visit with several of my family members as well, and have really enjoyed that.

For some unknown reason, Br. Hight's famous picture (see last post) somehow made it into a presentation that I did for the mission convention at Carolina Christian Academy. I felt terrible about the slip, but the congregation seemed to really enjoy it.

Happy Birthday!

Hey, when you're this old, I guess you deserve a nap! Tomorrow is Br. Hight's birthday, and I want to do my best to make his special day a memorable occasion. I'm sad to announce that our dear vice president has threatened me with dire consequences if I were to ever post this picture. Actually, I think that he was using a little reverse psychology, and deep down inside is looking forward to the popularity this photo will bring him.

Tomorrow we head down to North Carolina to start deputation. On the way there we will stop overnight to spend some time with Missy's grandma. We will be gone for two and a half weeks, so I don't know whether I will get a chance to post for a little while.

I'm Back

I'm back, and a lot has happened since my last post. I finished my internship with Pastor Jacob Martin at the Sunbury God's Missionary Church. Missy and I had a great time while I was working there, and it was a great learning experience for me as well.

We just got back last night from a week-long trip to Costa Rica. While there, we were able to stay with Br. Rolando and Sis. Carmen, a young couple who pastor the church my parents worked with, visit with different of the church people, check out the language school where we will be studying, do some sightseeing, and visit the area where we will be working. Br. Steve Hight, the vice president of EFM, was down there with us as well, and we had a good time fellowshipping with him. At this point there are two congregations in Costa Rica. Our responsibilities will include working with Br. Rolando and Sis. Carmen, and helping with the second congregation. We took a lot of pictures while we were
down there; I will share a few of them in my next couple of posts.

Sunday morning
worship. As a young
pastor, he is doing
a great job. We
sensed that he carries
a real burden for
his people.

Sis. Carmen is
busy preparing
another one of her
wonderful Costa
Rican dishes.
