Paula and I are sitting in the Mudhouse in Springfield, MO typing away on our laptops. We flew in a little early for the Southern Missouri District Council and we’re connecting with old friends and colleagues.
So far it’s been great–we’ve gotten together with Levi Augur (an alumnus from our ministry back at SMS), his parents (who graciously allowed us to stay at their house), Joss Walter (the first pastor to ever book us for a service), and Rich Avila (another pastoral‐type person we know). We’re staying with Joe and Jayne Zickafoose, who are currently preparing to go establish university ministry in Scotland. It’s great!
While we were in the air our students back at Stanford organized and led the weekly worship service by themselves. I can’t wait to hear how it went–Paula and I are very excited at the level of passion and ownership they’re displaying!
My wife just informed me it’s time to go grab lunch, so I’m signing off. I may edit this later to add more details and correct any spelling/grammatical errors.
