It's been a long time since we were one of "the missionaries" at a missions conference. Today we're headed out to Vernon, BC, about five hours northeast of Vancouver, to be with the Okanagan Valley Baptist Church during their conference. This is the church of my blog friend, Jessica, of Jessica's Place. Like our family, Jess and her husband and children have only been in Canada for a few years, building a fundamental Baptist Church in their town. Jess and I met through our blogs, then our husbands talked over the phone, her husband came down for our Men of the Word Conference a couple of weeks ago, and now we're going to their missions conference. I'm pretty excited to get to meet another online friend (I've met about four of my online friends in person, in addition to those I know "in real life"), and to spend some down time. I'm taking a couple of books with me, of course! Who can ride for five hours and not read??!! Other than those who get car sick, of course.
So I'll see you all sometime over the weekend, if for nothing more than a quick hello and goodbye again. I hope to find places along the way these next two weeks to make an occasional post and visit with all of you on your blogs. Have a great weekend!
