Yesterday completed our fourth, out of seven, weekend conference. Each one has its own special characteristics and uniqueness.
We arrived safely in Charlottesville early Friday afternoon. The coordinators provided dinner for us before hand, which was delicious. After Dad opened the evening with prayer, he began with asking how many families had driven over an hour, and about 50% of those there raised their hands. He progressively went up and was at 5 hours, and still two families had driven at least that far.
Saturday morning we planned to arrive at the church around 8, but we found a slight issue with our windshield wipers after we began driving.
So we stopped briefly, took care of it, and were on our way. When we came to the church, we were all surprised that it was locked! Our coordinator made a quick trip to someoneâ€™s house to pick up the key, and we did a whirlwind 15-minute set up in each of the four rooms 🙂 .
A mom provided lunch for us, and had it all set up when the lunch break came, and that was a blessing. We can talk as a family for quite awhile after a conference, sharing the different conversations we had with others. Our hearts are overwhelmed by the working of our Lord Jesus in the lives of those attending.
Weâ€™re headed north todayâ€”weâ€™ll be stopping for the night in Freeport, Maine, which is about a 700 mile drive. We will likely be driving through rain most of the day, although Hurricane Kyle will not directly hit where we’ll be tonight. There will be wind and rain, and the rain adds an interesting dimension to being in the bus, since we have leaks 🙂 . Dad refers to Uriah as a metal tent. This has become even more real now that it leaks–truly, a metal tent complete with leaks. We’ll be driving to Prince Edward Island tomorrow.
Only for Jesus,
Sarah for the rest
