It was another nice day in Baton Rouge. It was windy and cloudy at times which was not predicted but still a nice day.
We slept in a little late (6:30 for Anne but that’s better than the usual 5:00) and then Max cooked breakfast. A smoked sausage and cheese omelet. It was a really good way to start the day. After breakfast Rita, Anne, and Jo swept and mopped the sanctuary and fellowship area, with Max’s help hauling buckets of clean hot water. The floor had not been cleaned since the 60 college kids were here and it was in bad need of a good cleaning. Tomorrow is Palm Sunday and Francis Asbury worships outside under a tent with the church across the street and then there is a dinner for both congregations at Francis Asbury. We thought the floor should be cleaned before the gathering. Suzanne arrived about the time we were completing that project. So glad she was able to come in a week earlier than she originally planned. We had asked her to come early to take Cindy’s place. She agreed and headed this way. Yesterday, Jo and Mark checked the web site and there was still an opening for next week. So they signed up. Now we had two RVs for Cindy’s one spot. Suzanne told us she could just go without connections for a week. We looked around and unbeknownst to us the Conference had installed another 50 amp connection for the shower trailer that was used by the college students. And it was on a cord long enough to be moved within reach of where Suzanne parked her trailer. Another “God Thing”. We can use all the help we can get because our project at Richard’s has now doubled in size. The conference disaster committee decided Thursday we would build a second bedroom. NOMADS will be working at Richard’s for several more weeks.
For lunch we decided to try out our new grill. Max grilled some hamburgers with cheese and bacon mixed in. We were very pleased with the results. Another good meal. A short time later our other new couple, Barrie and Lee Ann arrived. So glad they are here safely. They have had some hard travel days due to the strong wind hitting the side of the rig coming across Texas the past three days. So all our chicks are in the barn again and we can relax.
After cleaning the church, Rita, Dave, and Mark played golf and Jo went along with them. They all had a good time. Tonight there was another card game for those wanting to play.
Tomorrow is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. Be in prayer for services tomorrow and all week. Hope you are having a good weekend.
