Well, our trip to Goldsboro last weekend was most definitely eventful. After our church’s youth meeting on Saturday, we headed across the state of NC to Goldsboro, where Stephen was preaching all three services on Sunday.
We made it about halfway there before we had a flat tire. That was the quickest AAA call we’ve ever had – from the time I called to the time the truck pulled up behind our van, it was 30 minutes. 20 minutes after that and we were back on the road…..in less than an hour and all. I’m so thankful we have AAA, and even more thankful we were all safe.
We finally arrived to the host family’s house about 9:00. They had made supper for us, and WOW did they ever make a lot! We all stayed up late chatting, while the kids ran some of their energy out. It was so wonderful to meet this family face-to-face.
Sunday morning started off bright and early. Stephen and the older boys went with the men early to church, and the kids and I followed later with the lady of the house. After the morning service, the church had a fellowship dinner. I couldn’t believe how much food there was! Then a bit after dinner, they had the afternoon service. I just love hearing my husband preach.
We left after that to head back home. It was a long day, but a good one, filled with getting to know new people and forming friendships.
