Saturday morning: Today I'm flying to Pittsburgh, to be with my parents, my brother Sheldon, and his wife Tammy. I had planned this visit some months back, and now it just so happens that while I am there, my parents are moving into an independent living facility for the elderly. So I'll be with them, Lord willing, on the day of their move. (I'm with them until Wednesday morning.) Also, we're fitting a time of ministry into Sunday morning. I'll be at a church called Berean, on Pittsburgh's south side, for Sunday morning. So I'm looking forward to a great family time and ministry time. Then on Wednesday I zip down to Roanoke, Virginia.
Monday afternoon: Greetings from Pittsburgh, where I'm having a great time with my family and helping in the process of moving my parents into a senior living complex. We're enjoying great times together and basking in the Lord's goodness to my parents in their twilight years.
A quick update on Sunday. The Lord graced the ministry at Berean in a strong way on Sunday, and we heard several comments of folks expressing how meaningful the message was for them in their current season. The response at the front afterwards was sweet as many came forward as an expression of walking toward Jesus, the Author of their story.
Quick look at this week: Today (Monday) we're doing cleaning and prep work. Tuesday we move Mom and Dad into the new place. Wednesday I take an early morning flight for Roanoke. I'm speaking Wednesday night at the Chi Alpha meeting at VA Tech in Blacksburg, VA. This is a very robust Chi Alpha chapter, with up to 300 young people in attendance at their Wednesday weekly gathering. I've prepared my heart to speak on the secret place. Then I fly home Thursday morning.
