It was a mixture of vacation and ministry.
It involved putting 2,400 plus miles on my Toyota Yaris over four days of driving solo. It was both great fun and pure exhaustion as I managed to fit the following into a 10-day stay:
There were opportunities to give a testimony and update at Second Baptist Church of Auburn, NY; at the First Baptist Church of Skaneateles, NY; and at McGrawville Baptist Church in McGraw, NY.
I was also able to share a testimony at Second’s Baptist’s senior adult breakfast at Denny’s Restaurant.
I’m not sure how this all fit in, but I managed thirteen visits with friends and supporters over coffee and meals. What wonderful visits those were! And even then I ran out of time and didn’t get to see everyone. Next time?
I enjoyed multiple visits with my boys and extended Cochran family — and even a one full day, two-night trip to my parents in Canada.
It was both great fun and pure exhaustion as I had the pleasure of visit after visit with friends and family.
And somehow, I escaped the snowfall that came before and after my trip. For me, that was a good thing! Thanks to all who prayed for safety on my trip.
