We're home

Melissa and I had a great time at the SBC in Indianapolis. We weren't affected by the storms although it did rain pretty heavily Monday afternoon.

We got to Indy late because of airline issues. We were suppose to be there at 1:15 Sunday afternoon but didn't arrive until 6:30 so we missed the Pastor's Conference and a preview of Fireproof. Monday was a great day, we heard some of the best preachers in the world. I had never heard of James McDonald, but he was awesome.

Tuesday and Wednesday the business of the SBC was handled. We elected Johnny Hunt as President of the SBC. The other officers of the convention were elected. We voted on motions and resolutions. One very important resolution was unanimously approved: on regenerate church membership (it's always good to have members of the church who are saved!).

We had a special treat Wednesday afternoon. We got to watch the new movie, Fireproof, scheduled to be released in September. It is the latest movie released by Sherwoord Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Let me just say, "You've gotta see this movie!" HGBC will be promoting it as the summer progresses. You can check it out at

We got to see old friends from college, seminary and ministry. We laughed and had a great time. But it was great to board the plane yesterday morning to come home.

We had a great surprise as we walked through the airport, Morgan was standing there waiting on us. She had some flowers for Melissa and a big kiss and hug for daddy. It was awesome. Thanks Karen. I'm looking forward to Sunday, Father's Day. See you then.

Pastor Mike

It was great getting to visit with you. I hope that next year our families will be able to sit down for a meal together again - it's been a few years since the last time we were able to do that. Keep in touch and God bless!!!

In Christ,
