Three days...

So thankful for a three day weekend about now...

Saturday: We had a great time volunteering with Mission Arlington. They actually gave us fliers and sent us out to an apartment complex to invite the kids to their after school program AND they asked us to do a Bible story and activities with the kids that day! Wow! Three other teammates and myself planned the songs and games and Bible stories while the other team members went door to door and helped with a free give-a-way of household items. Pray for Chris and Alena and Melissa and Taiwan - a few of the kids we met that day.

Saturday afternoon/evening: Mow the lawn, lay out soaker hoses, do grocery shopping...

Sunday: Church with three of the new interns. It was a wacky day to have brought young, single visitors. Pastor was talking with a local counselor about marital counseling. Hmm... But we had a great time of conversation afterwards at a local coffeehouse: witness, testimonies, heart adjustments. God's amazing. I baked up Amish Friendship Bread this afternoon, changed the dirt in the turtle house, and took a nap before cleaning my room (prep for laundry tomorrow) and heading to a friend's home for an all-GFA get-together.

Now: Procrastinating working on Bible Study. 1 Cor 3. Thankful for my new, blue spiral notebook to help with inductive Bible study notes. (Carly, you're a blessing!) And thankful for God's faithfulness!

Tomorrow's list: Breakfast with cousins, laundry, truck to move tables and chairs, work at office, crockpot meal for lunch?, bake more bread, and...I forgot. Oh yeah, get splitters for soaker hoses. Misplaced my last ones in the move.

Glad you had a good weekend....looks much busieer than mine. I was glad to be able to get some rest (I am just getting over a cold). Yesterday we did a lot of little chores around the place that needed done.

On another note, please pray for our church's Afterschool Program. We have been having some staffing issues, which hopefully are resolved.

Thanks, & God Bless.
