A wonderful day at Church. =)

Penny and I were both feeling pretty verklempt this morning, but we have made it a point to help the other in trying to get to Church no matter how we feel. 

So, we went ahead and got to Church in between services. We saw Pastor Adam as soon as we walked in the door and since he had mentioned on FB that he wanted to sit down with us today, it was perfect timing.

We went over why we have decided to take up the offer from Deb and Walter Wolf to join Pingree Grove (FVC West) and we mentioned our wish to contribute to the Church's needs. I mentioned my technical background and that we would like to help regarding the Church's needs for help regarding Information Technology and beverage services at the new location. Our medical situations came up during the conversation and I mentioned that we are picking up a Handicap Van later today (that God had blessed us with the opportunity to pick up the van at minimal cost). Given it is a Ford E150 and has a V8, it can handle pulling/towing the 6,000 lb trailer that will need to be transported between FVC and the Pingree Grove Location. There are 2 parishioner vans being outfitted to haul the trailer (and this will be handled on a rotating schedule). There was a need for a 3rd van for this schedule, so we offered up our van for the 3rd spot.

Amazingly, my helping on the technical support, Penny helping with the coffee service, and also helping others pull the trailer as part of a schedule fulfilled a prayer Adam had right before we met this morning. Wow.

So it is not only a great thing that we can help while the Church is starting in a new location, but our getting the van to help me get from point A to point B fulfills a need that reaffirms our getting it in the first place.

I cannot begin to describe how wonderful FVC is regarding a place of worship where people REALLY do care. If you are looking for a place to go to for God's word, I wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful house of God.  =)
Edit (added later in the evening around 11:28 pm).
We picked up the van later this afternoon and here it is after a $3.00 car wash and adding 15" hubcaps that I had in the garage (and it drove very smoothly without incident). =)
