What a joy it has been the last 9 days to be in the Southern California area ministering to the women of Placerita Baptist Church and Faith Community Church in Oxnard, California. God was gracious to give many opportunities to minister the Word, formally and informally. One of the highlights outside of the speaking was being with my dear friend Penny Andersen. Her husband and mine graduated from the Master's Seminary in the first graduating class! I also went kayaking for the first time in my life. It was such a joy to see God's beautiful creation! To God be the Glory!
