First Sunday Back At Oak Grove UMC

Sunday, May 20, 2018

Afternoon thunderstormOur first day back in Hattiesburg, MS began bright and sunny. Don’t know what the high was or even what was predicted but it was cooler than Baton Rouge. Between 5:00 and 6:00 tonight we had a thunderstorm come through with lots of rain in a short period of time. The temperature dropped rapidly and it’s rather pleasant out tonight. From the sounds of the thunder we might get some additional rain which is needed badly here.

Oak Grove UMC morning worshipThe team attended church together at Oak Grove UMC this morning where today was the Baccalaureate service. Pastor Andy talked to the graduate but his message was very applicable to all attending. The congregation at Oak Grove are very welcoming and supportive of NOMADS. They allow all our rigs to park in their parking lot, providing us full hookups at no charge. They also include us in their Wednesday night dinners and anything else going on at the church while we are here.

After church the team went to Cracker Barrel for brunch. We had a nice meal and good time visiting with everyone. This afternoon we had to pick up a few groceries for the week and then some of the team played a game of Jokers and Pegs. That’s a new game to us so today was observation. Anne’s phone died today so that has caused some problems. We currently have a spare phone and we have transferred the sim card in hopes that everything will be back to normal soon. Yep, we are going to have to replace our old Droid Minis soon. But we like our phones. Oh well, we may go shopping one afternoon. In the mean time, if you can’t get us on Anne’s phone, try Max.

Looking forward to beginning our work here tomorrow.
