This past week we had our Fall convention. It was a busy week but had many exciting moments. There was a group that came from my home church in Miami and some that came from our Mexico church as well. It was nice to see some whom I had not seen for a while like Cathy Sharp and the Toppers, it was nice to chat with them for a bit. This convention had a different feel to it, especially with Ps. Bailey passing away and having a new leadership. The overall feel from God was that it was a moment of going into a new move. There were a lot of words of encouragement that came through and words of strength to guide the church into where God is taking us next. Now its just time to continue and prayer and prepare for another week of class.

This year, we celebrated our 2nd annual September Birthday Dinner. There are plenty of birthdays in September in our circle so we decided to have one big dinner to celebrate all at once. We enjoyed this event at a restaurant called the "Big Easy." As you might of guessed, it is a New Orleans style restaurant serving traditional dishes such as gumbo and Jambalaya. It is quite a vivid atmosphere as they have a live band playing American Jazz throughout the night serving for good entertainment. We ended the night with a quiet walk down to the beach, enjoying one another's company and bar fights near by, and challenging conversations. It was a great way to celebrate our birthdays and enjoy one last night out with many of my friends before heading back to Waverly.
