To South Carolina and Back

We packed a lot into this weekend. Charlotte and I left Friday afternoon headed to South Carolina where I preached today at Stone Bridge Church in Powdersville, SC. We left on Friday so that we could take an extra day to celebrate our upcoming anniversary which is December 28th. On the 28th we will have been married 17 wonderful years!

On Saturday we took our time getting to South Carolina. We stopped along the way to do a little Christmas shopping and then went to Greenwood, SC to visit Charlotte's aunt and uncle. We were also able to see her cousin and his wife and their two children. We had a great visit with them. We are trying to see a lot of friends and family before we leave for Costa Rica.

After visiting with them, we then went to Sammy and Melissa Clary's home in Easley, SC. We went out to eat with Sammy and Melissa and their 10 year old son Isaac. It was truly wonderful to see them. They have been through so much in the past three years. Isaac was very sick and had a bone marrow transplant in April of 2006. God has performed many miracles in their lives and Isaac is doing very well.

Today I preached at Stone Bridge church. Everyone at the church was so friendly. The church is a one year old contemporary church. It was awesome to see what God is doing in this newly formed body.

I also had the opportunity to attend the early service at another church - Marathon Church. My friend Sammy was preaching in their services today. This church is also contemporary and has three services. It was neat to see some new and unique ways they are doing worship.

We are tired, but had a fun weekend. We are now gearing up to celebrate Christmas this week!
