Destination: Orlando

We're heading to Orlando (Florida not Bloom, but if you look closely you'll see that he is wearing an Ale-8 t-shirt, which everyone knows is the Kentucky soft drink) for a few weeks this summer to complete some training with Campus Crusade for Christ. We will be at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. Kim and I will be taking a few seminary courses to better equip us to minister to the students at UK. We're really looking forward to the challenge. And no, we're not going to DisneyWorld. My guess is that in the eyes of a two year old, Mickey Mouse is a six foot rat. I don't know if you've ever seen a six foot rat, but I bet you'd go the other way if you saw one coming. We'll probably wait a few more years to avoid any undue trauma.

Kim and I will both take a class on Biblical Interpretation and Communication. I will also be adding on an Old Testament Survey class and a Systematic Theology class. Hopefully in four weeks' time we'll be much more better at cleerly talkin' 'bout Jesus...'n stuff.

We'll still have our cell phones and feel free to drop us a line. We'd love to hear from you! Also, feel free to leave comments on the message boards. We want this blog to be somewhat interactive. If there are things you want to hear about, let us know and we'll write about them.

Back from Chatta-boogie

We had a great time in Chattanooga. We spent two weeks in Tennessee meeting with some Ministry Partners and catching up with friends. We also got to eat some of our favorite Chattanooga food; Sticky Fingers (you can order their ribs on-line if you don't believe me), China Lee, Monterey's, Mayfield's Ice Cream, Mr. T's Pizza, The Southern Star, et al. It was a really great time. Thanks to all who helped make our time there so wonderful. We are especially thankful for those of you who hosted small dinners or introduced us to your friends. Your friendship and commitment to our ministry has blessed us. We believe that your partnership with us will help give every college student a chance to respond to the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. Thank you!

Check out Hunter's blog soon. He's going to post a video of his day on the farm soon.
