marietta, lake lanier, and home again

we had a most wonderful visit with some friends and supporters at lake lanier in north georgia.  their home was so very relaxing and we soaked up the chance to swim in the pool and play on the lake.

our trip to georgia was relatively short this time but we enjoyed working on building shelves for our kitchen, spending a night at the lake, and capped the weekend off by visiting with mountain view community church.  they were having a commissioning service for their first short-term mission team.  Paul (sherry's dad) is on the team going to Peru this week to serve and love a community of people who make their living collecting recyclable materials from rubbish dumps.  it was an honor to join in the prayers and blessings for the team and we expect God work on and through each team member.  mountain view is a remarkable church because of its commitment to mission.  like communality, it is a part of the CMA family.

we're now back in lexington and having a good time sharing in the hosting of 12 new friends from Montana.  they are part of a youth and college-aged group who are interested in learning more about urban mission and community living.  we have three lads staying in our home and they are already doing amazing work with energy only teenagers can muster.
