July 15…

What a busy week this has been for me! Two trips to New Orleans, a quick one day trip to Cleveland, TN for the Disaster Preparedness Summit, training a new secretary and youth camp! However, the weekend offers some retreat and relaxation.

Mark Smith and Sarah Hidey visited NOMACC this week. They are the coordinators for World Relief who has entered into an agreement with us to partner for local residents and to help in the recovery.

I'm pleased to announce that Cooper talked to me on the phone this week--Wednesday, in fact. As his daddy was ordering food at the drive-through, Cooper was given the phone and actually talked to me! It sounded like @#$%&*(), but grandpa translation went something like--"I wish I were with you!"

Kathy and I are busy preparing for the General Assembly in just more than one week. We will get to see our children and many friends. I'm serving as Chairman of the Usher Committee this year, so there is much work that is going on to get ready for that. Kathy has agreed to lead two prayer teams during the Assembly to intercede for Godly direction and anointing. She is excited about that.

My father and I are planning another trip to Honduras in August to prepare for a ministry trip in October for our mission partners. We are excited to anticipate this.

Be blessed and know that your life has great promise!
