4 down and 5 to go....

        Back from a convention in PA, looking at myself in the mirror at 6:30 in the morning after a 12 hour ride through the night I didn't look much better than death warmed a over.  ;)   7500+ people attended the CHAPs convention. quite the variety of people too.
       It was great to work with the team that went, we had a blast and I'm sure that each one of us would say that our trip out there was worth it. we got to catch up with Chris Hogan and his group and friends that we haven't seen for a while. Trying to capture some of these moments in a picture really can't explain, even though there supposed to speak a thousand words, There were a thousand more untold.
        I realize that some of my photography has been getting kina sloppy lately. So I have purposed to take a little more time to get some better shots and post them. I realize that sometimes it's just to easy to click, click click.  =)  so here is a few for the books..  Thanks Libby, Chad, Abby, David and Mr. Barth for the memory!

Big Sandy...

        Still recovering from conference 3 out of 9...  ;) God was so good to the team and we were blessed beyond measure. There was so much going on and so many people but I know that God was at work among us even through the most difficult times we could see His hand at work. God really came through to me with a message from Tom Harmon when he mentioned that relationships with others are one of the most biggest competing affections between us and God. I sat there just kina stunned as I have never heard it really put that way before. I could easily think of half a dozen relationships that were a competing affection. I guess I need wisdom in how to deal with the relationships that I do have and put them in a secondary position.
        All in all it was an amazing conference, people were encouraged, lives were changed and God's name was glorified. And my prayer is that is will be the same for the next 6 conferences to come.
