Traveling to California
We've been able to travel together this week, as a family, because the kids are on Spring Break. So, we visited PLNU (Point Loma Nazarene University) in San Diego, CA where we attended chapel; met with some of our ministry team leaders on staff at the university [Brian & Kelli Becker; Melissa Tucker; Christina Pacheco; Mary Paul]; and connected with a great group of MK's (Missionary Kids) who are studying either at PLNU or other area colleges. [MK's/PK's = Julie McKeithen; David McKeithen; Kathryn Louw; Jocelyn Vasquez; Jessica Bird; and Casey Brough].
Besides getting to be "spectators" in an amazing chapel service where we heard our friends, Brian and Kelli Becker share about their recent trip to Haiti with Nazarene Compassionate Ministries; we were able to meet up with a group of students on Spring Break from MNU (Mid-America Nazarene University) at Balboa Park. [MNU group included: Emilie Beckum; Barrett Alexanader; Mitchell Cloud; Randy & Loretta Cloud, and others].
Oh - and today (March 17) was my 39th birthday...along with St. Patrick's Day. Great chapel service, great Mexican food for lunch, great time with friends, great fun at the park and the Fleet Science Museum, great Panera Bread for dinner, and great chocolate cake at the "Extraordinary Desserts" restaurant = a pretty great day.
