Charlotte’s Conference

Guest poster today. This is John to give Sarah a bit of a break from conference reports.

We only had a two hour drive on Friday, so we didn’t leave until close to noon. So far this trip has been the slow down trip. Going into Charlotte proved to be no exception. At one point traffic slowed to a crawl. We finally made it through the slow down, and arrived at the church driveway just before 2.

As you all saw in the previous post, the driveway to the church was very tight. It wouldn’t have been such a problem if there was not a deep ditch on either side of the driveway. Later we found out that firetrucks have a tough time getting into that church. Firetrucks are usually shorter than we are and have a better turning radius. Oh well, we made it in okay, and had a good place to park for the night.

After set up, we ate dinner. Some of the ladies from the local homeschool group made the meal. I don’t know if North Carolina qualifies as the south (in my book it does), but that southern cooking was fantastic. Personally, I would rank it as one of the best on-the-road meals, that we have had.

The conference itself was a blessing. We had a good group of folks show up. I admit, although a bit stoic in the beginning, they warmed up in the end. The young people were attentive, and we had a good time.

Overall hearts seemed to be open to the message, and the Lord blessed.

For dinner on Saturday, we went out with a family that we have known for several years. Don’t ask me where we ate, because I don’t remember. The important part was, I liked the food, and the fellowship.

That is all for this time, folks.

John for the rest.

  2. John,

    I am going to have to violently insist that you understand that North Carolina is most definitely part of the South!

    Many thanks for the blessings of your family’s ministries – in their many facets.

  6. I’m still not believing I missed your conference in Charlotte….My husband and I with our six children live very near there. I am quite sure you were a blessing to all who were able to attend. I definitely have my eyes open for another chance to see you all. God bless
