The beginning of this week I was a part of Summit University’s (formerly Baptist Bible College) Global Ministry Conference. I was given the opportunity to teach an hour long session each day (Monday-Wednesday). The students had six or seven workshops to choose from each day, including some other dynamic speakers, so I was grateful to have about 20 students join me each day. I focused on the importance of reaching the 4/14 window (children between the ages of 4 and 14 – when 80% of believers profess faith in Christ). From these workshops, I had some really great connections with a number of students and hopefully there will be continued follow-up in the coming months.
Brian was home being daddy for most of those three days. I have to admit, coming home to a clean home with dinner in the crock pot was a nice change of pace! :) He was glad to be back at work, though, on Thursday and I really haven’t seen him much Thursday or today as now he’s playing catch-up. However, he’s to a point in the remodel where he doesn’t have to rush and he will be cleaning and putting it back together shortly. Just last night, a friend came out to help draw up plans for the next remodel. The other duplex on the property that has been around for years and years needs a pretty major overhaul. One of the bathrooms has a toilet falling through the floor and the hot water heater is falling through the floor and the kitchen is super tiny for a house that could potentially hold a family of 10-12 (and usually does). It’ll be nice to see the changes in this place – but that won’t be before the end of the year, I’m sure.
E celebrated Valentine’s Day with her class today. She’s never given out valentines before, except to family, so she was super excited and very picky about which friend got which card and meticulous about writing their names herself. She came home with a bag of goodies – and promptly handed each member of the family a special treat, which I thought was so sweet of her.
Tonight, Brian and I actually get to go out without children for awhile! We get to hang out with close friends and enjoy some time alone – definitely looking forward to it.
Well, time to put the laptop down and pick up the screaming baby who’s refusing to nap… until next time…
