Trip wrap-up

July 18, 2009


As I write this we are preparing to land in Dallas to catch our connecting flight to Louisville. I think I speak for our team when I say that I am thoroughly gassed but joyful over the work that was accomplished for Jesus this week. I couldn’t be more proud of a team than I […]
