Randy's Flat Tire

We got a call from Randy "Momma...I'm stranded, can you come get me?"  He was in Morristown and had a flat tire and the spare was flat too.  Momma to the rescue!

Sister Time

With our visiting out of the way, we spent the next several days relaxing around the farm. Brenda got in some much needed rest. Below are pictures of our sister time together: a visit to Yoders, lunch at Medical Center Pharmacy and time spent on the farm. It was heavenly bliss.

Visiting Nana and Steve

During Brenda's visit, we drove up to Johnson City and spent several days with Nana and Steve. They are doing well and Steve makes a great pot of chili. We spent the next day in Mountain City, catching up with the Visser's and their growing family.  It's always a joy seeing them.

A Visit With the Bundy's

After church with Randy, we all headed over to Tom and Sherry's house for a visit that was long overdue. They live in Clinton, TN  overlooking the Clinch River and their house and yard is just breathtaking.  We visited for several hours, catching up on each other's lives, enjoying a meal that was so lovingly prepared by Sherry's hands. After lunch, Tom drove us nearby to where the colleges train for their regatta competitions and we walked the trail where he often rides his bike. Such a beautiful area.  I treasured our time together and realize no distance can separate our friendship. Thank you Tom and Sherry for  your hospitality and love.  God bless you both.  Our Knoxville trip wouldn't be complete without a stop at Randy's  Sterchi's apartment.  Brenda thought it was pretty cool!

Legacy Church With Randy

On Sunday we drove to Knoxville and worshiped with Randy at Legacy Church.  So blessed to see the church Randy is helping to build in partnership with the Campus Outreach ministry. They meet in the gymnasium of a local school and are very strategic in their outreach and home group bible studies. Their church is seeing amazing growth and it's so exciting for Randy to be a part of this.  We had a wonderful time praising the Lord and meeting his friends again. So proud of you Randy!
