On Monday, I flew out to Arkansas to be in Kent Engle's wedding. Kent is my best friend (after my wife, of course), so it was a priviledge to be able to share in his special day. Laura and he make a very nice couple; I wish them the best.

When is the last time that you enjoyed a cheese curl this much?
It is hard to believe that a whole week has passed since my last post; time sure does fly! I trust that each of you had a blessed Easter weekend. On Friday, Missy and I went to a youth rally. Nathan Purdy, a Penn View student from Ireland, preached a wonderful message on the cross. At this time of year, I especially like to think about the sacrifice the Jesus paid so that I could be free from my sins.

-We had a two-service mission's emphasis day at a small church in McKeansburg, PA today, and God blessed us with excellent services. The people and atmosphere were wonderful. Approximately forty-five people attended the two services and gave an offering of close to $2,000 for EFM!
-I am proud to announce that my youngest brother Jeffrey has qualified for state finals in the "National Geographics" geography bee; only one hundred students from the whole state make it that far. It would be great to see him go to nationals.
-I took the mission van that we are using for deputation to Wal-Mart yesterday to get the oil changed. After I checked the van in, I discovered that I had left my wallet at home. My dear wife had to take an hour out of her day just to run my wallet to me.
-I flew my helicopter 1261 feet (see previous post) on my second try; let me know if you can beat that.
-Devin is still as cute as ever. He has started walking, and life is just that much more interesting.

I want to thank the Lord for helping us to make it home from Ohio safely last Friday. We were scheduled to have a deputation service in Glouster, OH on Friday and a mission's convention in Canton on Sunday, but these were all canceled due to a major snow storm (we heard that Canton got 17 inches).
We left Ohio on Friday to try to beat the storm, but we hit a good bit of it. Cars were sliding off the road all over the place; at one point we counted around a dozen vehicles off the road in a two mile stretch. Things were pretty nasty, but thankfully we made it home without any problems.
The west-bound lanes of Interstate 70 were closed because of this accident, and traffic was backed up for miles. I'm just glad that we were heading east.
