Today is the day ... Israel!

Tuesday AM, October 30, 2007 – Winston-Salem, NC

Well the day is finally here … we are going to Israel today. We leave from Piedmont Triad International Airport (PTI) around 5:30 pm. We had a huge Harvest Party and combination 5 year anniversary at the church on Sunday and we are still beat. We were there from 8am until after 10pm. It was a nice day, we had a bunch of inflatable rides for the kids (Bounce house, Jousting, Obstacle Course etc.) We had live music inside and outside and recorded some of it to be on a live album that the church is doing.

I’ve got to go to work for a couple of hours today to wrap up some loose ends. A whole bunch of the church staff is going to Israel so we all have people in place to do our jobs. Paige is going to stay at home and continue packing. I guess we are going to the church later today and carpool to the airport. We are really excited.

Things have been going really well here. So well that there isn’t much time for anything else. It’s really rare when we aren’t at the church. I still do the facilities work but now I also get to be on the Benevolence Team (It’s 3 people and we give out food boxes and help with bills) and we both serve with ONEeighty Calvary Chapel of the Triad’s Youth Group. Paige also still works in the Blessing Room (it’s a room that people bring in clothes for others. Anyone can come in and take whatever they need for free.) and now she answers the church’s phones at various times on various days. It’s great and we are so thankful.

We are planning to update this as much as possible in Israel so stay tuned.
