had our first Easter as the new pastoral family at Kent Baptist Church, Kent, IN

wowie...Ken gave me a hard time last night for not posting for a week
i guess i had ALOT to blog about but was so busy that i just didnt do it.

so what do you want to hear about first?!
how about a short one?
our friends Lori and Paul live right by the river, on the KY side. absolutely perfect in the summer, nice breeze, comfortable back deck where you can watch the river. not so perfect in the rain drenched spring that we are having this year.

last friday i helped Lori take everything off the walls and shelving units so that they could pull the mobile home to higher ground. theirs was the last one scheduled to be moved, it finally got moved on sunday, the road was half closed by that time....they made it out to buy groceries and bring their daughter over here to spend the week (theres a school trip this week that she did not want to miss). Lori and Paul went back to move the deck furniture, move the dog pen and tie down the steps and deck (just in case). by 2 hours later the road was flooded over... only a monster truck is getting through that. so they are on a staycation on their own swampy island with 3 other families...thank goodness they went to the grocery store.
they expect the water to recede off the road on sunday.

meanwhile, we have had the privledge of keeping their 13 year old daughter :) she is one of my favorites. and she loves to play scrabble.

Whoa!! You have been busy!! Glad to hear Easter went well despite the bad weather. It's been brutal this year!!!

Sorry to hear about your friend's home. At least they have great people they can lean on to help!
