The past few weeks have been busy, but so good.
- I hosted a garage sale for a friend going on a missions trip this summer, and we raised over $1300. Can you believe it? That's 4 times as much as I thought we might raise. Praise the Lord!
- We attended our first life group meeting. Our church is starting a bunch of small groups, and we are excited to be involved.
- We had dinner with four other church couples on Friday night. It's a super cool idea. The church provides childcare, while all the "young adult" couples are divided into groups of 8-10. The groups meet at one of the couples' homes and share a potluck meal together. It was good to meet other people - we didn't know anyone else in our group before we got there. I think it'll make our big church feel a lot smaller. It's nice to recognize a few faces when you go to service.
- What else? Evan had a soccer game on Saturday. Corrie and I did some shopping. And the four of us joined another family for an outing to "Onionfest," an annual festival in Weslaco. Highlights of Onionfest included the bloomin' onion, the fajita nachos, Evan scaling a rock wall, and Corrie rockin' out to the live music. Our girl loves to dance.
