Do you understand the concept of “wrapping up”? That is what we are doing as we will leave, Lord willing, tomorrow evening. I woke up at 5:30 and could not get back to sleep as my mind was thinking about all of the things I had to do. Finally got up around 6. For the most part, I am packed. Some last-minute things will have to be done. After regular ‘morning stuff’ I worked some more on my trip report and PowerPoint presentation. For you in the Buckingham Road area; I am giving my report on Sunday, March 8 @ 5:00pm. I need to say something about Lori. She is a good girl but can always be a pest. You can see us on the left below. It was a two-man job to put up with her! The picture on the right is of the ‘remote’ part of the service I mentioned yesterday. You can see behind that some had to stand. The church is working on finishing the main auditorium and they hope it is ready by next February. I went down and visited with Richard and Lori and then Jean Claude arrived around 11:30. We went and had a nice lunch. Then came back and he and I discussed the seminar, next year’s seminar as well as the campaign in June. He is such a blessing in my life! Then Louis Bassay came and we discussed the children’s material including the teen material. We hope to have it done by June, if possible. He is doing a great work and is another rich blessing to me. Visited some more with Richard and Lori tonight. Did a bunch of miscellaneous stuff which would be boring to write about. Please continue to keep Charles Bishop in your prayers. He is still in ICU and the doctors are trying to figure out what is the cause of his problems. I spoke with Grandma and Charlie Brown. She went to the doctor today for her blood work and chest X-ray. The doctor said the blood work from yesterday at the hospital was fine and she shipped that to the back doctor. Linda had a chest x-ray some 5 months ago and she shipped it as well. By the time I spoke with Linda the girl at the back-doctor’s office was gone for the day. Tomorrow she will call to make sure that everything is still a go for March 9. We certainly hope so as Linda has been dealing with this for many months. This trip has been tedious on me due to Linda’s situation. I will be glad when I am home with her. Please continue to keep her in prayer and ask the Lord to grant her peace of mind. Lori is still not feeling 100% but better than yesterday but please keep her in prayer. Lord willing, we will head for the airport tomorrow around 5:30pm our time. I may or may not send a brief Howdy tomorrow or may wait and send one from Paris. Thanks for your prayers for us.
