We have arrived in Houston for Appointment Week!!

Hello! This is Charlotte writing! Cavin is finally letting me have a chance to write a few words!

We left Nashville yesterday at 12:15 pm and arrived in Houston at 2:10. We met up with several other appointees at the airport and rode together to the hotel where we are staying - The Hyatt Regency - which is in downtown Houston. We had met some of the appointees in Richmond in July, but some of the others were at Candidate Conference in August so this was our first time meeting them.

Everyone is coming in at different times. I think everyone should be in today. We are looking forward to reconnecting with friends we have met before, and also getting to know some new friends! It's great to hear how God has called each person and couple in unique ways, and how each has a passion for reaching people for Christ.

This morning we are up early because we have a training session at 8:30 am, which will last until 2:30. We are going to be pretty busy while we are here. They have a lot of meetings and training sessions that we have to go to. Tomorrow we are going to First Baptist Houston. We will be sharing in Sunday School classes. At this point, we haven't received our class assignments where we will be speaking.

The big night for us is Tuesday night (Nov. 11). This is the Appointment Service and will be held at First Baptist Houston. This will be a momentous occasion for us. We are excited that our parents, kids, my brother, and some other close friends are going to be here to be a part of it. They will be arriving on Monday. Cavin's aunt and uncle David and Fonceil Blake will be arriving today. His aunt actually works at the Board in Richmond and goes to all the Appointment Services. We are looking forward to seeing them. Cavin talked with a good friend of his from high school yesterday - Don Asdel. He lives here in Houston and he will be attending the Appointment Service. It will be great to see him.

We will try to write on the blog when we can this week, but may have limited internet access.
