Hey ya'll, my most humble apologies. we're all like, what!? no post for like, 3 weeks! wow! what's up! well, I'll tell you what's up! (or down, in this case) my internet has been toast for a while, so, yeah. hence my radio silence for a while. well, I was trying to post a video, but it's been giving me fits, so enough of that. I'll stick to pics & words, how's that? (for now, anyhow.)
so, ANYWAY, all has been going reasonably well, and we've all been staying pretty busy. last week we had revival meetings with bro. Joe Sturz from Oshkosh, WI. he did a great job, and everybody got some help. the Lord blessed and we were all enouraged and strengthened in the Lord.
so... before I go, here are some pics of this year... just some random pics I thought we might enjoy.

I don't know, I just enjoy being around airplanes. :) Jonathan and I went down to the airport in Burnet, Texas, and just hung out for a while. Jon even got to fly a Piper super Cub. cool, eh?

Yeah, for the Christmas play last year, they had me coler my hair grey. Guess I was supposed to look old or something.

Harvest Baptist Church in Temple TX asked me to come and preach for them on a sunday night. so Sharon & I sang a few songs, and I preached out of II Timothy 1.

Here's my morning drive to work every day...

I just had to add this one... :) Missionary Floyd Brown and his wife came rolling for the revival services last week in a cool looking Dodge Charger, and I couldn't resist...

'til next time...

Last Summer's Pictures

Hey Ya'll, some pictures of last summer seem to be in order. Enjoy! This one was taken on a mountain in Mexico while on a missions trip with the college gang...

Myself in Montezuma, Indiana with pastor Keith Mcintyre, and a guy from his church. Go orange!

Playing baseball...

Myself and a buddy from Capitol City Baptist College...

My sister, Kathryn, and I on the night of my high school graduation...

Early mornings in college require some serious measures...

Holding baby Emily, Matt & Kathryn's latest invention! :)

Friend Mark Siegwart and I in front of his Cessna 172 in Sault Ste. Marie, MI.

Long trip in the van, eh?

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know if we want any more!

Last week, I...

Huddle! huddle! Okay, are we ready to live last week for the set? Let's go! On to, on two, ready? BREAK!

Okay, so first, we really need to buy a car. So what do we do? Duh, we go to! So we find one about the right price (around $1200), the right type (small gas saver) and the right location (Copperas cove, TX)! So now we go on Monday and look at it, and check it out. What sorta car is this thing? Well, it looks like It's a '94 Mazda MX-6 with 136000 miles. Cool. It's got everything. 2.5 L 24 valve DOHC V6, Power windows, power locks, power seats, sunroof, cruise control, leather interior, it's really loaded! The only thing that it really needs is to get the A/C repaired and recharged, so will the guy take $1100 cash? Yeah, but he's gotta get the paperwork ready for it. So we come back the next day (as per the doctor's orders), and we've got everything ready to roll. Sweet! It drives like a sports car! What a blessing.

Fast forward through the rest of the workweek to Saturday, what's next? Okay, now we need to go down to Austin to go to Pastor Hank Thompson's funeral. Wow, what a man of God. As pastor of Capitol City Baptist Church for many years, you could say he's been around the block a few times. And a giver! He'll be remembered for his willingness to be there for you whenever, wherever, and however you needed him. Whether you had to have a helping hand out on the ranch, a friend to talk things over with, or just shoulder to cry on, he'd be there. He had the wisdom of 100 men of God. And he's always take the time to share it with you, whoever you were.

So it's really great to be at Capitol City and be with the old college friends again. In case you didn't know , this is the church that Jonathan and I went to college at for a year. Learned a lot, that's for sure. It's a blessing just to be able to catch up with all of 'em again.
Okay, so now we need to head on over to Cabela's, one of my favorite stores in the world. (if we must go shopping, let's shop here.) :) Spending time with the family is always a lot of fun, so it makes the time seem to fly by pretty quickly.

Well, as I sit here and write all of this on a Sunday afternoon, it's about time to leave and go to church and enjoy some more great singing, preaching, and fellowship at Freedom Baptist Church! I think we'll have some grub after the service as well, so should be a great time, eh? Well. so long; and until next time, keep on praising, serving and magnifying the marvelous Master!
