…so far, so good! We arrived in Louisville tonight at 7:30 (eastern standard time). Our flights (we had to switch planes in Colorado) were thankfully uneventful. I sat next to Frank & Chris on the first flight. We discussed Puritan theology (as I was reading Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices) and the difficulties of being a godly husband (as Frank convicted us by reading sections of Love that Lasts out loud). On the second flight I sat next to a gal from Colorado who works for the VA and is pregnant with their second child. She claimed to be a believer, so between discussion on parenting, marriage, and faith we had a lot to talk about. Both flights (each a little over 2 hours) went by very quickly.
Once at the airport in Louisville, we all praised God that our luggage arrived safe and sound (although Frank picked up several other pastors Shepherd’s Conference garment bags before he found his) and our shuttle to the hotel was ready and waiting. Our hotel is beautiful and the price we got on it (a special conference rate) is unbelievable. We are on the 22 floor and have a beautiful view of downtown Louisville.
Speaking of beautiful and unbelievable, we just got back from having dinner at a local steak house where Frank and I were treated to a 48 ounce Porter House (Not one each! We split it.) Wow. Some of the best steak I’ve ever had! As we walked back into our hotel after the terrific dinner (both the food and the company) we ran into C. J. Mahaney and Bob Kauflin. It was great to meet both of them and especially to tell Bob thank you for putting my favorite book Valley of Vision to music.
The conference begins tomorrow and I’m really looking forward to a wonderful time in the Word and continued blessings from fellowship with my brothers in Christ.
Amy, Rylie, Anna- I miss you and love you. Thank you for giving Daddy this opportunity!
