A Plan to Root against the Hokies?

Anne and I recently took a trip down south, landing in Winston-Salem and Clemmons, trusting the Lord to introduce us to some more people who would be interested in becoming financial supporters in our ministry, since we need about $700 in new monthly support before we can go back to Guam. We stayed with David and Jill Mayer, and their two girls, Kristen and Anna, whom we’ll introduce and share a little bit about in the future. But while we were there, we got the treat of spending a little time with Josh Ladd, whom the last time we saw, seemed to be a little 12-year old boy. Those of you who know Josh may be as shocked as I was to see that he’s now a 6’2”, 245 lb. offensive center for his high school’s football team, which was in the North Carolina State finals this past year. And he's only 16, and still growing! Josh’s dream is to play for NC State, then get drafted by the NFL. I told Josh that if he made the NC State football team, I would cheer for him and root for the NC State Wolfpack, even when they played against the Va. Tech Hokies. Those of you who know me, know that that’s real dedication and commitment, and maybe even a miracle.

I was looking for your address and found your blog. I can't believe you were only 2 and 1/2 hours drive from our house and we didn’t get to see you. Pleas send your address and please let us know if you will be in the area again. Jonathan and I will be in India until the second week in September, but we would love to see you any time after that .
