Travelling again...and some NEWS.
I'm on the road again. Drove from my Dad's house in Mize, MS down to the Coast Sunday morning so I could attend church at Bayou View one more time (and have lunch with Avery and her Mom...haven't seen them since before I went on The World Race).
I spent a lot of last week on the road too. I drove up to Hinds Community College last Wednesday night and saw my buddy Gary Permenter as he was speaking at SYC (Summer Youth Camp...pretty original huh?).
I drove to Camp Garayway Thursday night to see some of my "girls" at GA Camp- a couple of BVBC kids are working there as well as some girls that were in Greece with me back in March.
I worked on my jeep a good bit...added street tires, a header and a new exhaust that added about 4 mpg to my fuel efficiency.
I drove up to Aberdeen and Amory after church Sunday and spent the night with my mother after visiting with Chris Thomas at FBC Aberdeen.
Yesterday I drove to Birmingham where I spent the night with the Trammell clan. Today I'm on my way to Atlanta to buy new shoes at REI (and try to get out of there without maxing out a credit card). I'm having dinner tonight with my niece. Tomorrow I'll begin my search for a place to go Riverboarding in NC on my way to Worldchangers/Powerplant Camp in Pittsburgh, PA.
Also, yesterday I finally received an email from the Insurance people that are clearing me for my interview with the IMB. I have less than a week to receive clearance and they were still sort of jerking me around. I sent them a fairly strongly worded email yesterday and today received an email saying that they still want me to have my Cholesterol checked again...but that...yes, I am finally cleared to go to the interview.
So there you have it. I will OFFICIALLY interview with the International Mission Board in Richmond, VA July 29-August 2. That doesn't mean they will offer me a job or that I will take it if they do. But I am looking forward to going through the process.
