Hello Again

So blogger was having difficulties uploading pictures. So if you would like to see the pictures of our big gianormous house you'll have to check them out on my flickr site. Things are going well. I've filled out like 800 applications and now I sit and wait by the phone. We have internet in the house now so if you are bored and would like to drop me a line that would be greatly appreciated. I have a lot of free time. Nick preached his first sermon as the vicar this last sunday. It should be up on the church's website if you would like to see it. I am leaving this a little short cuz I have to go pick up Nick from church. I hope everyone is doing well.

The New Begining

Well, it’s Wednesday of my first week as vicar. I have finished my first sermon which I will be giving in Church on Sunday. I have met our members at the local nursing home, and this afternoon I will be going with pastor to the County Jail for a visit there. I have also started working on devising a Bible Study to start the week after Labor Day, set up a time to talk with the guy in charge of the youth group, and have started working on my evangelism module for this year. I have my own office with a desk and computer; I use my laptop though when possible to allow myself to bring things home if I need it at hand. I wouldn’t say I’m stressed, just that I’ve been hit with an overwhelming sense of responsibility. I don’t know that I feel completely comfortable yet, but I know that will come with a little more time here. Please keep Sam and me in your prayers, as we start this new chapter in our lives.

Its Getting Down To The Wire!

Well things are shaping up quite nicely. We are mostly packed and almost ready to go. I am very impressed at how quickly I got things packed up. Today I didn't do any packing because I had to run around and get other things taken care of. I would put up pictures of our kitchen with all the boxes in it but We packed up all the computer stuff and I can't get the pictures off of my camera and on to a computer yet. So our next post will be when we've moved to the new house and I have pictures ready. I would like to say thanks to everyone for being so supportive and helpful through this whole year and process. I am starting to get less nervous and more excited. I am ready to so something new and different.

See ya later,
