A REALLY busy weekend

I am writing this from East Iowa Bible Camp which is halfway to Des Moines from Cedar Rapids. We have a retreat for our elders, deacons, and equipping staff two times a year where we talk about the direction of the ministry and spend time working on alignment between the ministries. It is always a good time and I enjoy it immensely!

Yesterday I drove to Rock Falls, Iowa to see one of my best friends - Daniel Liberek - who is a missionary in Belgium. It was a 2 hour and twenty minute drive each way. It was an awesome time of catching up and talking about times gone by. I must be getting old.

CR Jazz Big Band dress rehearsal was last night with guest artist Carl Saunders and it only took us a half hour to go over the charts. Carl is great player and the concert tonight will be awesome!

I left CR around 9 PM with a caramel machiaato from Starbucks and arrived at the camp around 10:00 PM.

Sunday afternoon I am playing with the New Venue Big Band at Riverside Casino (no, I won't be gambling) entertaining the ballroom dancers. I am pretty excited about this because I get to play lead alto.

Alright breakfast is smelling good so I better check out. Have a great weekend!
