We had a wonderful staff retreat last Friday. Thanks for your prayers. We went to the Mosaic House’s new building in Ottewell so that we could see their renovations and get away from the phones. There was lots of sharing, laughter, tears, praying and learning. In the evening, the whole staff and their spouses and kids came over to my place for dinner. Halsey, our resident chef, made us some delicious food and we shared a memorable evening together. All in all, it did my heart good and made me appreciate again what a capable and good hearted staff God has brought to The River.
Sharon left on Saturday and spent the weekend with Janessa and my son Travis in Vancouver. She also had a chance to visit our old church—New Life. By all accounts, she was well received and had a great Sunday. Today, she flies out for San Diego for a pastor’s wives conference. I am so happy for her that she can have this break and be loved on a little. Sharon has put and continues to put so much of herself into The River. She is my rock star wife and the love of my life!
