Bullet Points

Hello October!!!! We’re in a new month and at a new location, so it seems like a good idea to get this little corner of the internet caught up and back on track! Perhaps the most efficient way to accomplish that is do do it in ‘bullet points’, so here goes:

      • Too much time has passed to really go in depth about our time at our Vermont Cabin, but let me tell you once again, how critical those three weeks are to our mental health.

        If you’d like to see more photos from our Vermont vacation, you can check them out HERE.
      • Spending the day in Waco with our son and family (especially little Anderson who we hadn’t seen since he was 10 weeks old) did our hearts good!

      • Getting together with fellow SOWERS at the “Western Wound-up” (i.e. SOWER Rally in Oregon) was SO. MUCH.FUN.  It was lovely to not be in charge of anything, and just enjoy all of the fellowship and fun.  We don’t often get to work on the West Coast, so this was a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends and connect with others that we did know!  From Silly

        it was a wonderful time!  More pictures of the sweet craziness HERE!
      • We meet this super talented double neck guitar player, Mark Kroos, and his sweet wife at the Rally, where he wowed us with his guitar playing.

        We were so impressed with Mark’s incredible talent, that we wanted to spread the word about him!

        Check him out!
      • After the Rally we were back in Lindale, TX getting ready for the Trustee Meeting. I even got the dashboard sorta-kinda decorated for fall! Sometimes it’s the little things…..

      • So the Board meeting.

        All went very well, and when all was said and done, this happened –

        Should be an interesting (and hopefully productive) year!
      • With the Trustee meeting in our taillights, we were headed to our October/November SOWER project at Oakridge Ministries In Anadarko, OK. (See the “Where are we now” for more details!) We made it a two day trip so we could connect with some SOWER buddies that we don’t get to see often enough!

        Such a wonderful perk of our life on the road is making these (somewhat) random connections!
      • And that brings us up to date! We arrived here at Oakridge on Friday, and started work today!
      • Oh, before I forget – Happy 5th Birthday to this little cutie!Reis
        These kids need to slow down in the growing up department!

      Thanks for hanging out with me as I’ve brought you up to date. Maybe, just maybe, it won’t be so quiet over here in this new month! I wonder what exactly “Back on Track” will look like?

  1. Hey Steph and Lovey,
    Thank you for the wonderful update. Those grandkids are sure growing. You and Lovey look so relaxed in those pictures (haha)!
    Wow, it does look like a busy year has started. We are in our Messianic New Year and now Sukkot, ourselves.
    Just sold the Born Free, and bought the forever home in the mountains of West Jefferson, NC. Ever up this way we would
    love to meet and house you both. Even have a large parking space for your rig. Shalom blessings to you both and take it day-by-day in our Messiah Jesus (Yeshua)!

  2. This is Sower #2508 (retired)just letting you and Gary know that I will be praying for a special blessing on you two as Gary takes on these new responsibilities. You both have been such a blessing to the ministry and he has shown leadership skills even before this came up. I am confident that the Lord will continue to bless both you and him and the ministry.

  3. Thank you, Gerry! All prayers are appreciated as we navigate these new roads! We’ve loved having you follow along on our SOWER journey – and well remember the year you and I overlapped on the Board! Blessings to you and Phyllis!

  4. Thank you for your kind comments!! If we ever get over that way, we’d love to connect with you also!! And thank you for your prayers as we do, indeed, take it day by day!
