We had a great Christmas day. We started off by opening presents at home and then went to church for our Christmas day service. After church we went to my sister's house for lunch with her family and had a great time. We came home early in the evening and had a relaxing night playing games and snacking.
Today was spent doing some running around in preparation for leaving tomorrow. There was the usual trip to Wally World, the store and then I went to get a hair cut (aren't you glad you know that?!). We wanted to get the van packed early (which we just finished) because of a big snow storm that is being forecast. The local news said it was supposed to start snowing around 3:00pm. For once, they nailed it - the first flakes started falling at 2:50 - amazing! The roads are now covered and it is getting pretty bad out. The forecast is for up to 16 inches of snow - YES!!!!

NORTH CAROLINA...We head out tomorrow morning (weather permitting) for our first meeting of 2013. We will stop in North Carolina to spend a few days with Stacie's mom and dad. One of her sisters and her brother live in the area and another one of her sisters will be in town as well. We have not seen them at all this year so it will be good to be there. Their pastor (Bryan Pease from Faith Baptist Church in Elizabeth City) called me this afternoon and asked me to preach the Sunday School hour this coming Sunday. I am looking forward to this opportunity as it will be the first time I have preached there.
FLORIDA...We will leave Florida next week and head to Cape Coral, Florida to be at New Testament Baptist Church (Pastor Bill Roan) for their annual camp meeting. We had a great meeting there last year and have been earnestly praying for another visitation from the Lord! The dates of this meeting are January 6-13, 2013.
ALABAMA...After Florida we will head north to Piedmont, Alabama for some time there with our friends - Evangelist David Evans and his family. We will be visiting some churches around there as well as being at his home church (Central Baptist Church in Lanett - Pastor Jeff Thorn).
THEN HOME AGAIN...We will be making it home in time to start a revival meeting at Old Time Baptist Church (February 10-13, 2013).
