We’re entering the 21st century with our own blog! Hopefully this will be a good place for updates on our jobs, schooling, pets, family, vacations, etc.
Our puppy Peyton got some long overdue shots and grooming yesterday while we were at work. Apparently he was a very good boy for all of the people at the vet’s office. He even got a cute little bandana to wear.
Today is Mike’s mother’s birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! We love you very much and can’t wait to see the family tomorrow.
Mike’s twin brother Marc was “commissioned” as a minister of the Gospel today in Indianapolis. It was nice to see the family and let Marc and Stephanie know that we support their ministry, both present and future!
We visited Elston Heights Baptist Church on Sunday morning and this evening. They are doing some restructuring, and they’re gearing up for a small group program. Tonight, Randy continued with his study on leadership. It was really good, and there was a lot of meat to chew on. We’ve really enjoyed it so far. Yay for God and his people! We’re thinking about heading towards Terre Haute this weekend. Mike wants to get Peyton Manning’s autograph on his picture of the record-breaking pass! That’s about it for now! We love you all!

Yesterday we attended the wedding of Garrett Wood and Chelsee Penrose in Plymouth, IN. Lindsay has known Garrett since high school, and we attended the Purdue BCM with both of them during our years at Purdue. Lindsay was also Chelsee’s roommate during her junior year.
- For the last few weeks and months we were not as close to God as we should have been. However, we have recently experienced somewhat of a “revival” of our faith, and it has been really refreshing and encouraging. Aside from the great people we’ve met at our new church, we have been learning a lot from our daily devotional, My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. This book has been a popular daily devotional for decades, and we thought we would give it a try.
