Fall Partnership Trip
This month’s newsletter could be titled, “On the Road.”
Right now, we’re in the middle of our first Partnership Trip. We have some encouraging things to report!
** NOTE: Please check our blog over the next few days for more reports and pictures from our Partnership Trip - prayingwithfeet.wordpress.com.
We left Kenbridge on Friday morning and got to Fitzgerald, Georgia on that evening – just in time to make the football game and watch the Fitzgerald Purple Hurricanes win the first game of their playoffs! We spent Saturday with Henry and Brenda Gail Tyson in Fitzgerald. It’s a beautiful and historically unique town – check it out sometime if you can!
Sunday was busy – we joined in morning worship with Fellowship Baptist Church, and had some great conversations over lunch there. Then in the evening, we presented the first of our concert-events at First Baptist of Fitzgerald
. We feel like the concert went very well, and once again we built some good new partnerships there.
On Monday we traveled to Locust Grove, just south of Atlanta, and spent two nights with family - Lee and Debbie Swaggerty are parents to Allison’s husband, Justin. Our time there was refreshing; we were able to catch up on some work, and had some delightful conversations with Debbie and Lee.
Wednesday we made the trip from Atlanta to Birmingham, and joined the evening activities at Baptist Church of the Covenant
. After meeting with the children's mission group, we spoke with the adults for a few minutes, and made some unexpected reconnections with some old friends! It was an encouraging evening, and we were so thankful to be there.
Here’s our schedule for the rest of this trip:
