Last weekend at Calvary Bible Fellowship in Neosho, MO went very well. We had a great time of fellowship with Dan and Trish Frederick, the pastor and his wife. It was very refreshing to be able to have another young couple our age to talk to for a change, since there seems to be a shortage around these parts.
Tomorrow, it's off to Kirksville, MO for a meeting in Southside Baptist Church with Pastor Aaron Rodgerson. We're spending the day out there on Sunday, and are really looking forward to it. We'll be leaving tomorrow after I get off work to drive the three hours out to Kirksville. Pray for my wakefulness. This working a job, and then dashing off to churches without a break on weekends is very tiring. Case in point: on the way back from Neosho (5 hour drive), I fell asleep at the wheel and sideswiped a guard rail. No one and nothing was seriously damaged (Thank God), but it was quite a wake-up-call, no pun intended.
We have Monday off to catch our breath, and then I'm out of here on Tuesday for Operation: YUKON, my 8 church whirlwind schedule of meetings in Alaska for the next 25 days. While there, I will be missing a) my wife's birthday b) the World Series (with the Cards in attendance this time), and c) the General Election. I trust it will be worth it, and I'm very excited about going, but still, MY WIFE'S BIRTHDAY!! I'm renting a car, and will have to drive from Anchorage to Fairbanks and back, alone, with no one to keep me awake, so again, be in prayer.
I think God is really going to provide up there, which will be a great help to us so we'll be in good shape at the end of the year to go on full time deputation. Pray for us, and for me as I preach and present our work in Alaska, that I'll be able to minister and serve those folks up there well, and be used of God to encourage and edify them.
