I am Back!!!!

For a brief post anyway.

If any of you are still checking in- thanks. My blog time has been ciphered away by a busier than normal schedule.

Gateway recently hosted Jerry and Lynn Jones in their Marriage Matters Seminar. Simply outstanding in every way. Actually their work in this area is the best I have witnessed in seminar form. They are both exceptional communicators and bring experience, expertise and humor to the stage. Great stuff and a big event for us.

This was followed immediately by a trip to Vallejo, CA for me. I enjoyed preaching in a good ole traditional gospel meeting for this church. Great group with a great spirit who loves good preaching. They blessed me. I found out I could preach right through a 5.7 earthquake and not miss a beat!

This was followed immediately by a trip for a weekend teen retreat at Gulf Coast Bible Camp in Lucedale, MS. It had been a while since I spoke in such a setting directly to teens. (I am an old preacher- remember? lol) But I had a blast sharing this duty with our youth minister at Gateway, Eric Petty. Bill Collins of Gulfport, MS wonderfully directed this event. I also was able to spend time with my good pals, John Dobbs and Les Ferguson, Jr.

Another time demand for me has been planning my 2008 budget. Yep, it is budget time at Gateway and I have two for which I am responsible. More to this than it sounds.

And finally I am scheduled to leave next Friday (16th) for the Euro-American Retreat in Rothenburg, Germany. There, God willing, I will be able to spend time with the two Lithuanian missionaries we support in prayer and planning- as well as enjoy this retreat with one of Gateway’s elders, Bud Myer.

I am scheduled to get home on Thanksgiving Eve just in time to make it to my mom’s house in Greenville, MS for turkey and all the trimmings.

After that, I plan to reintroduce myself to my family and write on my blog again! 🙂

Pray for me and my family.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Hey, Danny –

    I’ve been checking on you regularly and am glad to hear from you! I hope your trip to Germany will go well and that you have a good Thanksgiving with your family.

    Tom & I are going out to Texas to Abilene to visit my mom the week of Thanksgiving and I’m really looking forward to that. Except that it is a long drive!

    I’ll keep checking in here until you return again. Hope it will be real soon!

    Gee, when you were in Vallejo, you were just down the road from me! I’m at the Air Force base. You didn’t actually feel the earthquake there, did you? We certainly didn’t notice it here.

    Just noticed you are at Gateway… are Joe and Sandy Renshaw there??? Seems like they used to be. We knew them from when we lived in Ft. Walton Beach.

    Praying for safe travels for you!

  3. Oh Man! I wish i was going to Germany with you! Rothenberg is such a neat town and there is the neatest little cafe that has Spaghetti Ice (it’s vanilla ice cream that they put through a ricer so it looks like spaghetti and then top it with strawberries and shaved white chocolate). It is sooooooo goooood!!!! When you walk in the main gate of the walled city to the main town square and turn right, it is a little ways down on the right past the human coo-coo clock…which is something to see too if you haven’t seen it before! Have a great time! And enjoy your visit with your friends from Lithuwania (sp?). It’s always great to reconnect like that!
