An Intriguing CD

Sue says:
Working with college students, I need to be somewhat aware of the things going around. A friend brought this artist, Josh Garrels, and his latest CD to my notice recently. Josh is offering free downloads of this CD on the internet. The variety of his accompaniments, styles, and rhythms makes me think of Rich Mullins. Like him, Garrels creatively seeks to express the beauty of life, the conflicts being waged, and his faith in a powerful yet loving God. See what you think.

Visiting Family on Fall Break

Sue says:
The fall semester was half complete. It was time for a week's break to enjoy the fantastic fall colors.

And time to catch up with our kids and grandkids. Our oldest grandson led the pack in 4-year-old soccer.

The guys enjoyed a Virginia Tech football game together.
The gals had a baby shower to celebrate the upcoming birth of a new addition to the family .

And we relaxed together with books. Our kind of mid-semester break!

Happy Birthday to Jeff!

Sue says: Isn't this a nice picture of Jeff? It was taken on his birthday yesterday. He's sitting in our apartment dining room with a few presents and PNG memorobilia.

Meeting More of Our Neighbors

Sue says:

The deans of men and women (seated right) invited the residents in our on-campus block of apartments to bring dessert to share with each other last night. What a delight to meet four neighbors we'd never seen before.

The couple with the most unique way of meeting were pen pals, and she's from Belarus (the couple next to the deans). They've been married six month now. Some of the others are students, employees of the college or they work at other locations. Like any other neighborhood, our schedules keep us from even seeing each other. A nice idea to share dessert together. 

At the missions conference planning meeting this week, we were happy to welcome three new attendees. We came up with themes and names of possible speakers. The new members inspired us!

Meeting with the Dorm Students

Sue says:

Jeff took on a challenging assignment and stayed up until 10 pm (that was the hard part) to attend the meeting of the students who live on campus.  They're a friendly bunch (see them on the right), and he talked with them about becoming involved with the planning of the upcoming missions conference on campus.

Speaking at another missions conference at Potomac Baptist Church in Northern Virginia this past week-end, we were able to pick up a number of exciting ideas to incorporate into our own conference. What a blessing it was to hear more about what God is doing to make Himself known around the world.
