Dearest Ones,
I hope this note finds you well. I just returned from a trip to the Bahamas with the American Baptist Women and the American Baptist Women in Professional Church Leadership. It was a good chance to renew friendships, deepen others and form some new ones. I was especially blessed to spend some time with Sarah McCurdy, brand new IM missionary to the Dominican Republic. 
Throughout October I have the honor of preaching and lifting up the invitation to Rise to the Challenge through the World Mission Offering in various churches. If you happen to be close or in the neighborhood, I'd love to see you. 

I'll be at: Olympia First Baptist, Olympia, WA on Oct. 5th
              First Baptist, McMinnville, OR on Oct. 12th
   First Baptist, Port Angeles, WA on Oct. 19th

If you aren't close by, I'd love to hear how you are doing and how I can be praying for the challenges that you are rising to. Drop me a line, give me a call, or come by for a cup of coffee- let's stay connected.
Remember that you matter and that you are loved,
