Awesome Weekend!

This past weekend was pretty awesome!

Saturday started dark, early and cold at 3am. I went with 3 others to pick up our Angel Food in Portsmouth. We unloaded an 18-wheeler and divided our food out from other churches that were there. We got back to Bagley Swamp around 8:30. A large crowd of Bagley Swampers showed up at 9 to unload and folks began to pick up food around 11. It's pretty cool to be a part of something new and the potential that it has to impact our community.

Saturday was also Kendall's 16th birthday. We went to IHOP and 'loaded the wagon'. It was good. I was ready to hit the sack when we got home.

Sunday's services were good - we had large crowds at both services and God is definitely working in people's lives.

Sunday evening we had our annual Bagley Swamp Thanksgiving Dinner. For the last couple of years we have rented the local elementary school multi-purpose room to have enough room. We needed it. I think our folks fixed something like 10 turkeys and 10 hams. Everyone brought their favorite side dishes and desserts. Can you say Feast? Needless to say - huge crowd.

Went to the YMCA this morning. Need I say more? Feel better now.
