That weekend was a fabulous time of fellowship & learning with our good friends & fellow ministers from different parts of the country.
Bob & I flew down to Dallas via Detroit. Here are a couple pictures from the plane.

Now to the beyond part. Coming back from Dallas, we have a challenge in front of us. We must get a third of our support raised. We are very close needing only around $100 to be at this goal. A third of our support raised is only the beginning. Our goal is to be fully supported by August so that Bob can be on campus full time.
We need to get this $100 raised by this week for us to be in the clear with our sending organization. Our God is large and I have full faith that we will see this done. We have two support meetings set up for this week and Bob is doing well formulating a plan to get us fully supported by August.
We went through support raising training in November and feel fully prepared to meet with people & have them join our team. Part of our training was that we need to be asking for references from the people that already support us.
Once Bob started asking for these, we got a lot of references that we are now working through.
This is our very short term goal, the next short term goal is to get our student loans paid off- that is another blog post though. :)
