Road Trippin’ to Va

This past Thursday afternoon, we packed up the car with lots of toys, snacks, clothes for 10 days, and of course our little dudes, and hit the road. Our goal was to make the 12 hour drive from Tampa to Riner, Virginia. We knew it could potentially be a disaster of a trip since Asher is at that age where nothing can keep his attention for more than a few minutes, let alone many hours sitting in a car. We only stopped twice, once for dinner dinner and another for a potty break (of course we filled up the car those two times as well). The boys were champs and the trip was actually a lot of fun.

The purpose for our trip to Virginia was two-fold. Ashlee’s brother got married this past Saturday and then this next weekend marks the 10 year anniversary of the original Aletheia Church. We have had a lot of fun seeing Ashlee’s family and being in this beautiful state (you should come to Va during the fall, there is nothing quite like it). I definitely missed my church family back in Tampa yesterday but it was great to hear about how God moved at Aletheia yesterday in my absence. We had our third largest crowd ever and lots of new visitors. I was reminded once again that the health and vitality of the church has nothing to do with me. I am just pumped about the momentum and can’t wait to get back. It was also great to have Cameron (and Meghan) Gwaltney at church yesterday even though I am a bit disappointed that they came into town the weekend I was gone. (Thanks for the pic Meghan)…

In the meantime I am looking forward to being at the mother-ship this coming Sunday. I can’t believe that it’s really been 10 years. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into that church plant and to hear (and see this coming Sunday) about all that God is doing at His church in Harrisonburg. I am so blessed to have been a small part of it.

Here are a couple pics of my little guy (Asher) from our trip to the pumpkin festival yesterday evening…
