Back From the Break

Our family and five other pastors’ family got back yesterday from spending a few days together in Wisconsin. It was great to hang out with friends that I have known since college; and for some of them, I have known since high school. We were like one big happy family!

It is a great joy seeing our kids playing together and growing up together. In our generation we have built some great bonds of friendship and hopefully, in their generation, they will be able to continue the friendship with one another. Maybe if some of them marry one another then we will have more generations 🙂

Afterwards, some of the families went to see Kung Fu Panda. I think it was just as hilarious for the parents as it was for the kids. Then we finished off our time together with Chinese foods – the power of movie influence… ha!

Then this morning I flew back to Ann Arbor for our new property title signing. We were gathering in a conference room of the title company and all representatives from the parties were there. It was great meeting the vice-president of National City bank in Ann Arbor.

I don’t know how many papers I signed today, but all I can say is that it was a lot. Now the property is officially ours and we are doing our best to get it ready by the new season of ministry. It was my first time seeing seven digits on a check… it was pretty crazy seeing that much money being transferred in just 20 minutes.

Now I am at the airport getting ready to head back to Chicago to rejoin with my family. We will staying in Chicago for a few more days to spend time with our extended families. I will also be ministering at HMCC of Chicago.
