Hey! We're in Lancaster, having a great time. Sam is moving into his dorm room today, and he's pretty pumped up. We thoroughly enjoyed the services yesterday. Pastor and Mrs. Chappell invited all the families with first-time students to their home after the service last night; we thought that was very gracious of them. This church and Bible college make sure that people are welcome, and the Bible college students become family while they are here. We met so many people yesterday who assured us that our boy would be well cared for. That means a lot to us. I am very impressed with the spirit, atmosphere, and attitude of the entire church. I've seen several things that I feel will be valuable to our son in his training for the ministry, such as the philosophy of servant leadership among the staff. They live it, not just preach and teach it. I'm excited for Samuel. I believe he'll do well here.
We've had some minor car trouble, so if you would, please pray about that. We should have everything fixed by 5 this afternoon. It's hard to have a quiet spirit when there's so much going on at once, but the Lord is very real in His assurance that He is indeed in control. Lord willing, we're leaving tomorrow morning, stopping in Sacramento and Portland on the way home. We hope to be home late on Thursday.
