At church Sunday, one man called the Greensboro area the Promised Land.
We left Tennessee right away Friday morning. The drive was not smooth sailing. Some sections were pretty curvy because we were on the edge of the Smokies, and we also encountered a long slow down due to an accident.
We arrived at the church mid-afternoon and after figuring out where the sessions would be, we jumped into set up. We definitely felt the lack of Joseph being with us, but the others pitched in to cover.
Friday evening’s round-table sessions were good, followed by the Heart, Soul, and Spirit session. The “new” music group did an amazing job, and I still am struck by how much Jesse sounds like Joseph! They rallied well.
Saturday also went well. There had been a request for me to give a girls’ session, so I did that Saturday morning and was blessed by an attentive group of girls. We love seeing people’s interest and eagerness for each session. God is good!
One fun side note. We encourage people to get to know each other. Two couples started talking, and they found out they both had driven 2 1/2 hours, which led to to the fact that they were from the same city. As they talked, they discovered their children worked at the same restaurant! They also found that their children each knew their parents were going to a conference but had no idea it was the same one. Talk about an amazing coincidence!
A sweet family provided us with dinner Friday evening and then lunch on Saturday. Thank you, B family!
We always enjoy meeting new friends, and we’re grateful for those opportunities, along with seeing old friends too!
“For our heart shall rejoice in him,
because we have trusted in his holy name.”
