Travel, travel and more travel...
This past month has been filled with lots of travel and great experiences. We started out in Cincinnati, OH visiting the college and seminary. From there we went to Lincoln, IL where we met up with two of our commissioners, Dr. Wayne Shaw and Dr. Paul Boatman. We were able to set up our display at several locations on campus. It just so happened, that we were visiting while they were putting on a seminar for 'The Encore Generation'. It was time well spent learning about the aging population in our churches and our communities. We learned how to continue to utilize their spiritual gifts. From Illinois we traveled to visit the Twin Lakes Christian Church in Branson, MO. While there, we took the opportunity to have dinner with Scott and Leann West whose son lost both legs in Iraq. We became friends while their son recuperated at Walter Reed Medical Center.
Our next stop was Kansas. We visited University Christian Church, Crestview Christian Church to hear chaplain Chris Ball preach, Fort Riley where Chris serves and Manhattan Christian College. At MCC we were able to set up the display in several locations and see two of our chaplains. Greg Delort, after his duties at MCC serves as a Hospital Chaplain. One of our newest additions, Rick Wright, will dual hat as a Professor at MCC and serve as a Hospital Chaplain in his spare time.
