I spent this past week in Roanoke, Virginia preaching in a Revival Meeting with the Edgewood Christian Church. It was a wonderful week. I got to meet some terrific brothers and sisters in Christ. And it is always a privilege to preach God’s Word. But the best part of the week was that I got to spend it with my son Luke. His school allowed him to take a few days off so he could accompany me. The father/son time that we had together was really great.
One of the church elders hooked us up with tickets to a big-time college football game on Saturday night. Virginia Tech hosted Clemson. The Hokies didn’t play well (and Clemson is now ranked number 8 in the country), but it was a really cool experience. Luke is now a VT fan.
The Roanoke area is a beautiful part of the country. The leaves on the trees were just starting to turn. Things were gorgeous. We spent an afternoon with another one of the church elders and his wife. They took us out for a boat ride on Smith Mountain Lake. It was a lot of fun.
We also enjoyed spending time with the staff from Edgewood. They are genuine servants of the Lord. It’s good to be back home now, but we truly enjoyed our week in the Old Dominion.
