So we arrived at Max’s brother’s house Wednesday night in the rain. Then it rained all night long and then all day on Thursday and into the night Thursday night. Thursday was way more rain than Wednesday and was a total rainout. Debra, Michelle (Debra’s sister) and Max and Anne sat around, napped, ate and visited all day. Randy got home from his trip Thursday night. Friday morning we finally saw the bright sun for the first time since Monday. Nice. Friday was cool and blustery but sunny. It was another great day of just spending time with family with lots of (too much) good food. Friday afternoon Max’s nephew David and his wife Jennifer also come over. It was great to get to spend some time with them again, too. This morning we had a wonderful breakfast with Randy and Debra, readied Fred for travel and then Anne, Max and Michelle headed back to Alabama. We were glad Michelle got to spend the week with Debra and have some good sister time and very glad we had some time with everyone. It’s the holiday season and time for family. We are now back in Alabama until after the holidays. Our next NOMADS project is in January. We have doctors appointments, accounting, moving the remainder of Max’s mom’s things from her house to Helen’s, and all sorts of things on the to do list for the next few weeks. Feeling a little overwhelmed by the size of the list but we will just try to mark things off one thing at a time.
Looking forward to going to Lester Memorial tomorrow. We had thought about going to the dedication at Rosalie Baptist Church, the church we helped build with Constructors for Christ last June. We would love to see the completed church, but we decided we really wanted to be at Lester more. Don’t forget to be in prayer for the services at your church and all the other churches. Hope you will check back in on us tomorrow.
