Sunday Service and UW arrival

We had a great service today. Abby Grainge played the keyboard for us, our new Yamaha church keyboard...and was awesome! Our praise service sounded so much better with an additional instrument. Martin's sermon was good too.

The UW team arrived tonight...such a wild first night. First of all, their flight got in at 6:45, but it was 9 p.m. until they finally got through customs. Then on the way home, one of the vans (with Alex and David) ran into a huge lake of water due to heavy rains and...well, it's a long story. They got home about an hour later than I did. We ate tacos, then dropped some of their sports equipment at the church. The lock stuck, one of the new locks we just installed...and we spent a good 20 minutes trying to get it unstuck...I finally arrived home just after midnight after dropping the last of the team off at host families. Now it's after 1 a.m. and I'm still strung out on airport coffee and my current book (actually Abby's book) Vintage Jesus. Here's another quote:

Quote of the Day:
Truly, the difference Jesus has made in history is staggering. Even more endearing is the difference Jesus makes in our personal history. Billions of people on earth have their own testimony of the difference Jesus has made in their life. Their stories are absolutely amazing--they are the people Jesus has loved, saved, forgiven, healed, restored, encouraged, empowered, and utterly transformed. Vintage Jesus, Driscoll and Breshears,p.211.
