1. Arrived in Portland just a few hours ago.

2. Maryland was a blast. It was great hanging with my little cousins Hannah and Jeremy and spending time with my Aunt and Uncle.

3. It was nice to see a lot of my extended family during Abel's reception.

4. Also had fun with some of the youth playing Settlers of Catan. Still not sure how I managed to win. Beginner's luck I guess...

5. Was refreshing to meet young people who are genuinely passionate about God and walking the straight and narrow and honoring their parents and glorifying God with every area of their lives.

Trusting the Lord for guidance and grace,
