It’s hard to believe we just finished our sixth weekend conference in a row. The last six weeks have been a bit of a blur, although the pictures and blog posts help to document everywhere we’ve been! In a way, it seems like a long time since we were home, but yet, the time has gone so quickly, it doesnâ€™t seem like that.
We arrived in Fallbrook Thursday afternoon. We had a quiet afternoon/evening, resting and preparing for the weekend. At that point, we discovered an issue with a pipe going to one of our tanks, so Friday morning, Dad, Joseph, and the coordinator’s son (who kindly drove them and another time let us borrow his truck) went to get the parts needed.
By the afternoon, the repair was made, and we were preparing to set up. I think for the most part set up has gone quite smoothly after so much practice! This weekend, four families graciously provided meals for us–thank you!
The weather was almost too good to be true. Crisp, blue skies, temperatures in the 70’s, green grass, and blooming flowers. This was like late spring in Kansas, not winter.
Back to the conference: hearts were again open, hungry, and receptive. Dad and Mom had many parents come up to them to discuss things shared and their own personal situation. Each of us children also had opportunities to talk and encourage others as well. The weekends seem to fly by!
Then, Dad preached for a small fellowship this morning. We were supposed to have met at the local water plantâ€™s meeting room, but apparently the room was given to someone else, so a new location was secured: a pavilion at the local community center. Chairs were set up, and church was begun under the small shelter. It was a wonderful time of singing, preaching, and talking afterward. We were very blessed by the friendship and warmth of those attendingâ€”they made us feel very welcome!
