Philip Bassham and I at his Blessing Service

UPDATE

  • On Monday of this past week, Teri and the kids drove down to Mobile, AL to spend the week with her parents.  We have a limited number of time to be with family before we return to the UK, so we are trying to take advantage of all these opportunities.
  • On Wednesday, Phil Ferguson from the Our Generation Training Center and I drove to Roanoke Rapids, NC to be a part of the service at Victory Baptist Church.  We had a great time there presenting the ministry and seeing what God is doing in that exciting church.
  • Thursday, we drove back to Atlanta and got to Vision Baptist Church in time to be a part of Philip Bassham’s “Blessing Service”.  Philip and his wife Lori are members of our home church and are leaving for Thailand on April 10th!
  • On Friday, I attended a four hour missions training class with my Pastor Austin Gardner.  I go to this class every Friday that I can when I am in Atlanta.  It is a very helpful time of learning and training.  We talked a lot this past Friday about loving and investing in the men you are training.
  • On Friday night, Teri spoke at ladies meeting at Heritage Baptist Church in Statham, GA.
  • On Saturday, we celebrated Grant’s 8th birthday with Teri’s sister and family at Stone Mountain Park.  In the afternoon, we drove up to Granite Falls, NC to be there for a mission conference starting on Sunday at Fellowship Baptist Church in Maiden, NC.
  • Yesterday, we spent the day with our friends Ronnie and Marsha Smith, who were missionaries that we worked with in Northern Ireland for many years.  I am really enjoying preaching their missions conference.  It is a real honor to do so.
