Cyndi and I have spent the last two months in orientation getting ready for our overseas journey. Our brains have been crammed full of information on culture shock, adjusting to life overseas, being safe, etc…. We were in session from 8am to 3pm (and sometimes 5pm) and on some Saturdays even. We finished that up last Wednesday and left for West Virginia. So far, this trip has been very relaxing.
On Sunday, we drove to Williamstown to Williams Creek Baptist Church where I attended while in High School (although then, it was called First Southern Fellowship). Today, we met with the pastor of Faith Baptist Church in West Union to talk about this weekend. The pastor there, Jim, is such a nice guy. We had a great time talking to him, learning about the church, what they have going on in the area, his call into the ministry, etc….
After lunch, Cyndi went to Columbus (yes, for everyone “down south” I mean Columbus, Ohio NOT Columbus, Georgia. But, even though you are “down south,” I’m not “up north.” I’m from West Virginia. It has been called the Northernmost Southern state and the Southernmost Northern state.) and I came back to Berea. Grandpa and I went over and mowed grass at Uncle Doug’s farm. The weather was so nice. It was great to get out and enjoy God’s creation. We had a great time. I’m not sure what tomorrow holds, but I’m looking forward to it.
