Wow, it has been almost a month since our last update. We’ve been a little bit busy. Last week was WVU’s Spring Break and Emily and I went with the Baptist group here on campus, WVUMCM, down to Charleston, WV, for the week. We stayed at West Charleston Baptist Church and ministered alongside them to the homeless, hungry, and helpless. It was an eye-opening experience not in the sense that we saw people in conditions unimaginable but…
…it was eye-opening in seeing the amazing ministry that this church is doing in Charleston. That church is very much the hands and feet of Christ in that city, ministering in every and any way possible that they might win some. We had a wonderful week down there. You can go to the WVUMCM website and browse to the Picture Gallery where you will find pictures and several videos of us during the week.
Many people have been wondering and inquiring about Emily’s journey to a WV driver’s license. Well, as of about two weeks ago, Emily has her learner’s permit (you can find pictures of her with it and the car in the downloads section under pictures). She studied like crazy for the learner’s test, and it has paid off. One problem we are experiencing is that with the Learner’s Permit, Emily must be accompanied by someone 21 years of age and older, and I, unfortunately and until April 1, am only 20! So, for the large part, Emily hasn’t been able to do as much driving as she would like. The good news is that she will be able to go at the beginning of April to get her “proper” driver’s license (a license has to have the permit for 1 month).
What else is going on with us?! I’m glad you asked. My parents and church have planned a “domestic” reception and celebration for this Saturday, March 25, at Calvary Baptist Church starting at noon. A very short service in the sanctuary will be followed by a Powerpoint presentation by Emily, and then food and fellowship in the church hall. Everyone and anyone is invited to come celebrate with my family this Saturday at Calvary; and if you’re family, it’s obligatory!
